Pride Goes Before A Fall

 

When life heats up, we have the choice to jump out of the refiner's fire with our pride still intact...

Here's what's scary about choosing that route: the pride that helps us save face will eventually be the stumbling block that makes us fall on our face.

The Bible says that pride goes before a fall and humility proceeds honor (Proverbs 19:23)

When we humbly bow our face before the Lord, God considers it a great honor to reside in that humble place with us. Honestly, it's unfathomable that God allows us to carry things so dear to Him-His glory, His power, His Holy Spirit, His message to a lost and dying world-knowing that we will at times make mistakes, do it wrong, take the credit, and even completely miss the mark on occasion.

He uses us on a Monday knowing that we'll blow it on Tuesday. He knows how imperfect and self-centered we can be and yet He entrusts the greatness of heaven to His beloved ones.

That's powerful.

With Love,
