DEVO. 06.06.24

“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”

‭‭(Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭18‬ ‭AMP‬‬)

- This Proverb gives a strong warning.

- It says Pride goes before.

- That means that “Pride” is like a street sign that is telling you what is ahead, right around the corner.

- Webster dictionary defines pride as, “Confidence and satisfaction in oneself”

- James 4:6 says that “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.””

- ‭‭Why would God resist the proud?

- Because it is openly rejecting God as our creator.

- It is saying, “God I don’t need you. Look at what the work of my hands can do!”

- When the people in Genesis 11:4, began to build the Tower of Babel, they said, “Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.”

- ‭‭”Make us famous”! They were making a name for themselves without recognizing God.

- Then God had to confuse their language and scatter them.

- Today, recognize pride for what it is!

- God will openly resist you if you are full of pride or openly promoting “pride”

- Ask God to reveal any part of your life where you have been prideful.

- Reject pride and humble yourself before Him.

- James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.”

- ‭‭Learn to “go low” and let the Lord be the one who “Lifts up”.

- Let’s promote humility, not pride.

- When we promote humility, we are promoting a trust in God.

- Have a great Thursday!
