Dust as a Symbol of Poverty, Lowliness and Humility

1 Samuel 2:8

8 He raises the poor from the dust

And lifts the beggar from the ash heap,

To set them among princes

And make them inherit the throne of glory.

For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s,

And He has set the world upon them.

 

Genesis 18:27

27 Then Abraham answered and said, “Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord:

 

1 Kings 16:2

“Inasmuch as I lifted you out of the dust and made you ruler over My people Israel, and you have walked in the way of Jeroboam, and have made My people Israel sin, to provoke Me to anger with their sins,

 

Job 30:19

19He has cast me into the mire,

And I have become like dust and ashes.

 

Dust is a symbol of poverty but God raises us up and sets us among princes.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

 

Prayer:   Father, We praise you for your Son and the Holy Spirit. Human words cannot describe how grateful we are for Your Son and our risen Christ. We praise You for the opportunity to be a child of Yours and to be able to choose Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We praise you for the laws You have set down to keep our life in harmony and safe. Please bless those who have read this article for they too are seeking Your righteous truth, love, wisdom and understanding. I pray that they will come to realize that their existence is a treasure of grace and love which You have for them. I pray that they will come to realize that their existence is a treasure of grace and love which You have for them.

Praise and Glory to God the Father, Jesus our Lord and Savior, and to The Holy Spirit our mentor and our hope for everlasting life.

May God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights for eternity. Let it be Your will Lord not mine. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of The Holy Spirit,

Amen.
