You have brought down kings and brought shame to the queen’s palace. Thrones have been shaken and kingdoms destroyed.
You have seperated the strongest bonds and severed the deepest relations. You are heartless! The mighty cannot escape from you!
For a moment you seem right, you seem true but only poison springs from your wells. You deceive the elect!
You are silent and deadly, you seperate people from their God. Even God resists the ones that entertain you. He cannot be in the same place with you! No!
Your aim is pure destruction, without mercy you scatter the works of love. I have seen your works, I have tasted the bitterness of your friendship, I quit!
Where you pass only Ashes and broken hearts remain. Your sting is stronger than that of a serpent.
What medicine must I take to sooth the pains of your touch? How must I separate myself from you?
By the Sword I will separate myself from you. By the Word that is ever true. I will hold on to humility and I will uphold my maker forever. My heart will I guard forever!
Love will take your place in my heart. It will brake that seemingly strong bond. I will die to myself, yes! and arise in Christ! Grace is sufficient!
Never again will I hold on to vanity! I quit.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
An intense preoccupation with the self is an indication of the presence of pride. When everything seems to revolve around you. “ME, MYSELF AND I”.
Pride clouds judgment. It births lies and God resists such people because they feel they do not need anyone and that anyone includes God. For those who feel that they need God in their lives there is humility where they highly esteem God and esteem others as well.
It because of pride that Lucifer lost his place in heaven. Eve also because of pride, ate the forbidden fruit and she and her husband were led away from the garden of Eden. They both fell from grace and there was a separation between them and God.
James 4:6 says that “God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
More often we let pride creep in our relationships and our marriages. Love and pride cannot be in one place. The presence of love purely means the absence of pride.
Because of pride one can never find it easy to admit to their wrong let alone apologies. It destroys relationships.
Today, if you will humble yourself before God, He will exalt you. Choose now to humble yourself before the mighty hand of God because there is wisdom in true humility and people tend to gravitate toward humble people. So too does God.
