|…. I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit. ~Isaiah 14:14-15
Pride is one of the most dangerous traits to possess as a Christian. It leads to so much more damage. If we can’t humble ourselves then we really can’t become true servants. God wants us to develop a spirit of servitude, to get out of our comfort zone and to do things we might not normally do, to become selfless.
Lucifer, who was the most beautiful and one of the most powerful angels, developed a spirit of pride and wanted to raise his throne above the stars of God, but God brought him down even lower than the ground we walk on. This is what happens when we become proud, God smacks us back down. Humility!!! Humility!!! Humility!!! If we can’t humble ourselves, God will not lift us up. It is as simple as that. The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: they will not go unpunished.-Proverbs 16:5. I don't remember many things in the Bible that the Lord hates, so we must take this warning very seriously.
“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” ~James 4:6. I can't even begin to imagine what life would be like without the grace of God. It is my prayer that none of you ever experiences life without the mercy and grace of God. It is my prayer that none of you ever gives God a reason to take his grace away.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
