Blessed Are The Poor In Spirit


Poor in spirit is not referring to physical poverty.

It means acquiring a state of mind where you become helplessly dependent upon the Lord.

It is similar to delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Where the word delight means taking pleasure in the things of the Lord.

Too often we try to work out the solution to our problems in our mind instead of taking the problems to God and leave them at His feet.

Totality is what God requires of us. Total surrender, total dependency, and our total life.



  1. “helplessly dependent upon the Lord.” Amen Beverley, this is the best way I have ever heard it put. I use to be bad about jumping in and trying to help the Good LORD with the problems. Like He needs my help, He created everything. Another thing He is helping me with is leaving it at His feet. I, on occasion leave it at His feet only to grab it back later. Praise God for His loving patience. LORD, thank You for continuing to bless Sister Beverley 🙂
