He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Strength Under Control

Num 12:3 Now the man Moses was very humble (meek), more humble than all men who were on the face of the earth

God lets us know that Moses was a humble man among all men. He was entrusted with such great leadership yet he served in that position with great humility.

Humility is not assign of weakness, it is strength under control. God spoke to prophets by visions and dreams, vs. 7-8 “7 Not so with My servant Moses; He is faithful in all My house, 8. “I speak to him face to face, even plainly, and not in the dark sayings; And he sees the form of the Lord”. The relationship God had with Moses stemmed from a position of meekness and faithfulness. Compared to priests and prophets, God’s revelation to Moses was direct (plainly) and immediate (face to face). In this Moses could have elevated himself over Miriam and Aaron, however, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (Jam 4:6.) To be used of God is not a license to elevate self, exploit or abuse others but to walk and serve in humility. The way of exaltation is paved with humility.
