Blessed are the poor in Spirit

““Blessed [spiritually prosperous, happy, to be admired] are the poor in spirit [those devoid of spiritual arrogance, those who regard themselves as insignificant], for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever].”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:3‬ ‭AMP‬‬

it is interesting how Jesus starts His sermon with the beatitudes because once it becomes a part of us, other commands will fall in place.

To be poor in Spirit is the brokenness of Spirit. It is the realization that we are in desperate need of a saviour and cannot do life alone. When we are poor in spirit, we become babies in the hand of God. We are not spiritually proud and stiff but flexible in carrying out the will of God.

Jesus assured us that the kingdom of heaven is for the poor in the spirit. The significance of the Kingdom here on earth is for the will of God through our obedience to Him to be established here on earth. Once His will is done, His kingdom becomes established.

So if Christ reigns in our lives, we experience a different reality than every other person.

The kingdom of heaven can be likened to anywhere God dwells. We carry His presence when we are broken because our spirit won’t be in contention with His. Carrying God’s presence comes with great perks, darkness in whatever form it appears in your life will flee. Contrary roots withers and our lives become an earthly representation of Heaven.

We must remain in a state of brokenness, ever willing to receive and obey. We need God even more than the air we breathe. Live in the consciousness of this!

You are Blessed.

Shalom💙.

Angel.

    I love how you explained this. What it means to be poor in spirit and to carry the kingdom with us.
    A humble contrite heart is a pliable heart for the hand of God.
    Wonderful to see your post Angel 😊
