Don’t you wish you could just drop it at your feet and trample it to mush ~ the pride I mean? That unruly, rascal that keeps resurfacing to the top in your life and leading you astray with it’s deception? What makes it “So There” all the time? Just when you think you’ve beat it, it’s back with a vengeance undermining your desire for humility before God. How do we tell it to get lost and leave us alone? The most amazing thing is that God understands it and it’s plight and best of all He’s willing to keep taking it, helping us with it and helping us reduce it to rubble. Only He can do it though, so don’t forget to ask Him daily to take that unhealthy, unruly pride that just seems to be there! Lay down that rod, that fear of failure, that insecurity, that crutch in your hand, all the subtle elements of pride as well as boastful pride and allow His confidence to rise up within you and move you forward in His divine direction with divine guidance.
Galatians 6: 3
“For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.”
Proverbs 3: 5
“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.”
