One Splintered Gift, Lowly Service In Grace 

shared by Suzin McNeill
Zech 9:9 
  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of  Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal  of an ass. 


 Learn of  Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart. Have you stood with Me in lowliness? Have you been abased for My kingdom because you have denied yourself in following My will? Have you suffered persecutions for  My sake? Where are the splinters of the lowly manager in birthing My self in you?  Where are the splinters of the rough hewn wood of the cross evident within you? The greatest among you comes walking with all lowliness of heart unafraid  and reaching forth to the unclean, to the cast down, to the broken,  and raising them through My love. Circumstances in low degree are the birthing tables to ruling as kings and priests and daughters of My glory. 

 A new day is before you and crying for My glory to come, will not bring it to you. Serve one another in fullness of heart daring to take upon yourselves the robe of your  Servant King. Seek to serve in My love and you will look up and behold, My glory  will shine upon you and surround you. 

 Have you given that which you cherish the most to another? See My FATHER. Take your pricey cherished thing and let go of it in the giving. Hold not to your things but  cling to Me in service to one another. The battered and maimed will come. The lowly  and broken ones are all around you. As My FATHER required of the three wise kings at My birthing, so does HE require of you, now, to make giftings and offerings of that which you have. Come lay down the things that weigh you. Lay down your coveted treasures. Stop serving things and come and serve Me with lowliness of heart by serving those who can not repay you. Come give your best gift this season to another
and then serve Me by serving others in lowliness of heart. 

Shall you be humbled? Shall you be broken? Have you shared in My fellowship  of sufferings? Why would I say to you the words "deny yourself" and follow Me,  if I did not have many kingdom issues for you to learn? Character is created in you  through trying circumstances. Serving with the lowly heart unites your heart with Mine. I came to preach the gospel to the poor, the hurting, the afflicted, the meek,  the broken, and to those who had only hope. 

How can you measure your own worth before Me? Who do you serve most? Where are your talents shown for your own glory? Can you release yourself from even your one most cherished possession and give it freely to another? Can you release your one thing without a prideful announcement? Can you do good and quietly serve those who can not repay you? When you are willing to give in facelessness and selflessness, you will be prepared to reign with Me as the kings and queens I have called you to be. Shall I call you yet again to deny your self and follow Me?  I gave all for you. I call you again.  Learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: 
 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.  Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.   Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. 

Prov 3:34-35   Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.  The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools. 

Phil 2:5-8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 
 Matt 11:28-30  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
