THE WORD FOR 12-08-2019

Pride refuses to depend on God and be subject to Him and takes the honour due to Him. What makes me reluctant to trust God but rather try to make the impossible happen all by myself? Pride. God hates pride. God resists the proud because the proud resist God. Pride will not admit to sin. The heart of pride never confesses, never repents, never asks for forgiveness. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5). Isn’t it easy to see why? Humility is happy to do what pride will not. The humble heart is quick to acknowledge the need for God, eager to confess sin, willing to kneel before heaven’s throne. And it’s no wonder God makes His grace abound to the humble!
