Topic: Pride – The Enemy of Destiny Fulfillment [Tuesday May 16, 2017]
Scripture: But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. James 4:6
Thought For The Day: Pride is the foundation for destruction.
It is important to know that satan, being envious of your glorious position in Christ, is working every day to ensure you lose it. One of the weapons he uses to achieve that is pride. Being once with God in heaven and having lost his place through pride, he works every day in order to make us also lose our place with God in heaven through the weapon of pride.
Now, what is pride? It is the tendency to feel bigger than you are. It is an exaggerated opinion or inflated idea of oneself. Pride makes you look down and talk down on people. It makes you give yourself credit for what God is doing. It gives you an arrival mentality. It makes you immune to counsel. It makes your life to revolve only around yourself; pride is the worship of self.
Pride is the most dangerous and destructive character trait anyone can possess. It is a major factor in the abortion of destiny (Isaiah 14:12-15, Genesis 3:5).
Beloved, pride is the foundation for destruction. God assists everyone but He resists the proud. If the devil resists you, you can be assisted by God, but if God resists you, who can rescue you?
Remember this: Pride is the foundation for destruction
- Always remain humble in your own eyes.
Never forget where God took you from.
