Derek Prince - Be Clothed With Humility


Bible teacher Derek Prince explains the importance of humility and says in this context about fasting: We wouldn't dare to go ahead in the ministry that we're in, if we didn't practice regular fasting.

1 Peter 5:5-6 talks about the importance of submissiveness and 'being clothed in humility.' Derek points out that Peter says here literally 'put on an apron of humility'. People in the time of the New Testament would put on an 'apron of humility' if they were slaves, as a sign of submissiveness to their masters. So when Peter tells us to 'put this apron (of humility) on', he actually says that humility is an attitude rather than a code of conduct.

As a very remarkable example of a way to humble ourselves, he talks about Ezra 8:21-23. Ezra put his trust for protection in God and he proclaimed a fast. One of the appointed ways to humble ourselves is by fasting. This is also found in Psalm 35:13.

Derek Prince makes it very simple. How can we be humble? By being humble and by proclaiming a fast.
