This book was written out of the conviction that God's people need to learn in practice and experience the art of waiting only on God. It is arranged in thirty one chapters, one for each day of the month.
This is a marvelous book about humility Bigger ones have been written but no better ones Nor has any other author who wrote on humility ever journeyed from the strong pride to deep humility that Andrew Murray did

|This book delivers way more than one would expect. First of all it is not that long of a book. But it takes a long time to read because you cannot breeze through it. Written by a South African pastor in the 1800's, this book has a woodenness to the english that slows you down. This is good because the topic is so deep that you want to stop and pray every page or two. |
It leveled me to the ground about 12 years ago. It is still at the top of my list.
As a pastor, I have recommended this book to many, many people. It usually changes their lives. The fruit tends to be enduring and deep.
I first encountered it when I was a YWAM student. It was required reading in our discipleship school. I think this book should be read by every Christian. If you don't have a copy, buy an extra one so that you can have a loaner.
|Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord... Nov 21, 2003|
|Anddrew Murray writes with the simplicity and love of a pastor, without soft-soaping or sugar-coating the truth. His abandonment and love for Christ is evident in all of his works and, therefore, qualifies him, in my opinion, to write a book on humility. You can tell he has experienced humility and that it is not just an intellectual excercise. |
The one thing I took away from this book is that humility is indeed an experience; you can hear about the need to be humble, read, and even study about it. But unless the Spirit makes humility real personally to the individual, it is possible to become haughty about the need for being humble.
Andrew Murray's works have added so much to my Christian life; I feel closer to G-d because of the things he has written.

|Incredible Book!!! Feb 1, 2003|
|Andrew Murray seems to capture the essence of what it means to be a Christian, and this book is no different. This a beautiful treatise on the subject of Humility, and Murray offers specific directions for believers, from Scripture, whereby we may be transformed and conformed to the image of Christ. I loved it, and I'm sure you will, too.|
|Humility - the most neglected trait of Christ-likedness Nov 27, 2002|
|In this little book of his meditations, Andrew Murray brings out by God's Word how humility is defined, how humility can be attained, and how humility is oh so needed today. After reading it, I received a more clearer understanding scripturally on humility. I thought I had an idea about this subject, but that's all I had -- an idea. This little book spurred me into God's Word to seek out Christ as my Example. I truly believe this book can be a help to anyone who desires to have a closer walk with the Lord, and also has a desire just to be a servant for Him.|
