TOPIC: DEALING WITH PRIDE & ARROGANCE

Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. God is the only all-sufficient and independent God.

He is the maker and creator of man. The reason why many people act and behave the way they do is that they are yet to recognise that whatever they have were given to them.

God said He hates the proud.

God does not associate himself with proud people. In fact, it is written in James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but he giveth grace unto the humble;

One major way to live a stagnated and unproductive life is to be a proud man. Many children of God have been caught in this satanic web of pride. they even go ahead to say that; I am self-made, And this, in turn, comes back to hurt them.

The only reason why pride will lift a man up is to crash-land him. If God says He resists the proud, how can he advance or progress?

If God is for you, who can be against you; and if God be against you, who can be for you? the devil has succeeded in setting many people against God by imputing pride in their heart.

The devil lost his place in the Heavens, in God’s presence because of pride and arrogance. He (devil) said I will exalt my throne like that of the most mighty and be like the Most High. (Isaiah 14:12 -15).

And the end product of that action is a demotion.

I pray for you that your heart will not be lifted against God in pride in Jesus Name. We saw this about Uzziah in 2 Chron. 26;3-16, he was marvellously helped by God and he became very strong and mighty that his fame went abroad.

But it came to the point when his heart was lifted (pride came in) that he went into the temple to burn
incense which is not his duty as king but the priest’s duty and his kingdom taken away
from him.

Friends!  Nothing pulls a man down fast in life than Pride. Run from pride, check yourself daily by God’s word and examine your ways if you are still humble.

God gives grace to the humble. If you must succeed in your Endeavours, you must be humble.

Jesus was humble to death, even death on the cross. He thought it, not robbery to be equal with God.

Never give pride and arrogance chance in your life. watch the way you talk, the way you relate to the people above you and under you.

Humility exalts a man. Humility attracts grace and help.

In 1 peter 5:6; Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God. that he may exalt you in due time; You may not know the due time, but at least you know how to be humbled, and that will determine the due time.

Lifting in life is tied to your attitude. Your success today is as a result of your humility yesterday. And your success tomorrow is tied to your humility today.

The fastest and short route to lifting in life and business is humility. Wives, submit to your husband, servants, submit to your masters and have respect to them widest dreams. Shalom!

PRAYER FOCUS:

Oh Lord help me to be humble, Give me the grace to be humble oh God. kill every
pride in me in Jesus Name.

PRAYER OF SALVATION

Now, I trust you must have been blessed by this devotional. Therefore, to maximize the benefit that is in Christ Jesus, you must, first of all, identify with Him. I invite you to make Jesus Christ the Lord over your life if you have not before now surrendered your life to Him. Do well to make this confession:

“O Lord God, I believe with all of my heart in Jesus Christ, your beloved Son. I believe He died because of me and was raised from the dead. He’s alive today and I confess Him (Jesus Christ) as the Lord over my life from this day.
