A treasured Christmas gift when I was a child was a HO Gauge train set. What is a HO gauge train set? If you are familiar with model railroad trains you would recognize it as the most popular gauge for model trains, which makes it fit exactly on the tracks.
In other words the tracks that trains run on have to be to the same scale as the wheels on the railroad cars.
The reader is probably asking, “Why is this important for me spiritually?”
It is a good way to remember the most important points in fellowshipping with the Heavenly Father. HO will help you stay on track with God and see His power work in your life. Here is what to remember: H = Humility and O = Obedience.
A recent teaching by Vikki revealed these two principles in manifesting the power of God in our lives. Once I saw the HO, I thought of this cute memory peg in helping me remember what it takes to manifest power in my life.
Humility is the beginning of everything important with God:
Proverbs 29:23: A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
James 4:10: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
1Peter 5:6: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
We humbly receive God’s Word and the next step is obey it. We believe it, by taking action on it:
Jeremiah 42:6: …we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send thee; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the LORD our God.
Jesus Christ was the ultimate man doing it perfectly. We follow His steps.
Philippians 2:8: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
We stay on track with God the Father by remembering to be humble to receive from Him and obedient to do the Word of Truth so we may always please Him.
