When the LORD laid this on my heart, and thought of sharing it, I was only thinking positively because I know God has a great love for all of His beloved children, so understand why I'm sharing this with you today.
There's this subtle dangerous force, a spiritual plague that pull people down into darkness & doom called - Pride. This is a silent killer, a destiny destroyer and a radical impediment! Beware, it's your real enemy! We need to come down in order to go up, we don't climb trees from the top. Pride makes us more like Satan than the saints we are. Needless to say, it depletes our spiritual power & effectiveness! Remember that God promotes the humble without limits. I know your promotion is due! James 4:5-7; Prov.11:2; Prov.29:23.
A swollen head makes the crown unfit and so loses it! Pride unleashes one invincible enemy against us. No, the enemy is not the insidious Devil, heís not invincible. Itís God Almighty! Itís absolutely impossible to succeed when God becomes our enemy! But, humility or absolute obedience to Godís Word is an irresistible aroma that attracts the grace, glory, superabundant blessings and uncommon favour of God, Hallelujah!
Whenever we attempt to protect unrighteousness in our lives, we lose our divine protection. Our defenses become extremely porous! If we don't flee from these objects, enticements & seductions of sin, we'll start fleeing from Satan's regular attacks in terror, even though the righteous ought to be as bold as a lion!
You're too important in God's Kingdom to dabble in lying, stealing, fornication, pornography, bribery, pride, unforgiveness, lust, perversion, insolence, gossiping, drunkenness, wild parties e.t.c. Remember Esua! Gal.5:16-25; Josh.7:10-13; Eph.4:17-32.
Thank God youíre full of His gentle Spirit that teaches us all things, leading us to our great inheritance in Christ Jesus, glory to God!
Humility is the secret infallible authority & power for greatness that many people will hardly know. Though unwise people take the humble for granted, God doesn't! In fact He honours & promotes the meek terrifically. Swallowing our pride won't choke us I assure you. It's the entrance to great open doors! Self conceit & boasting are sure invitations to trouble, but humility keeps Satan at bay! God's power manifests greatest when we're weakest, or most humble! 2Cor.12:6-10; James 3:13-18; 1Pet.5:5-8; Ps.25:9,10; Ps.138:6.
Psalm 25:9, 10.
He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way. The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.
True humility and fear of the LORD lead to riches, honour, and long life.
But he gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say, ďGod opposes the proud
but favors the humble.Ē So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
Enjoy a great day in Christ Jesus.
Apostle Steve Adonai.
