Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the LORD’S anger. - Zephaniah 2:3
How do I seek the LORD? How do I be humble? How do I do what HE commands? How do I seek righteousness?
There are many ways to do all these things, but in the end, all of them comes down to, or is rooted in just one way, and that’s Jesus. Without Him, without His grace, there’s no hope, for it doesn’t matter how I might be able to do any of these things, because I’m incapable of meeting even His lowest standard on my own.
And I suppose an even better question to ask is “Who is the LORD?” and the answer is the Jesus is the LORD. Seek Jesus, be humble, obey.
But still, I still do need to seek Jesus, be humble, obey, and seek righteousness. How do I do these things? I’m especially curious about being humble. I think it’s something that gets easily confused with something else. Seeking righteousness is also something that’s difficult to figure out what it is and how do go about it.
Application: look into what being humble is and what seeking righteousness is, read a random chapter in the psalms, do QT first thing tomorrow morning
