Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?There is more hope for a fool than for him.
Pride is an ongoing,
It spills out of our hearts
and creeps into everything,
unless we recognize and repent of it.
And if we fail to deprive its power,
it grows stronger.
Pride controls our thoughts
while disregarding God's presence,
and His sovereign administration
over us and everything.
Pride leads us to foolishly think
our lives are determined
solely by our free will,
with absolutely no divine intervention.
Our unbridled thoughts and actions puff us up in praise of our victories
and our clever accomplishments.
As Christians we must be vigilant to recognize how strong pride really is
and how it separates us
from sweet fellowship
with our Savior
and with others.
"Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit
If this devotional has caused you to think about your own life, consider asking God to:
"Create within me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
Hear God's call.
Consider reading His Word
Commit passages to memory.
Be obedient to His message - found in Holy Scripture.
"Seek the Lord while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
and He will have compassion on him,
and to our God,
for He will abundantly pardon"
"Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments . . ."
Have a glorious day in the Lord.
I would love to hear from you.
