Be Real: Proverbs 16:18
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a (an) fall. Better it is to be of a (an) humble spirit with the lowly than to divide the spoil with the proud.
As I was pondering what to write this morning, what came to mind is the current situation that is occurring in our country today. Our political climate is causing many to have anxiety attacks and concerns. We are to cast all of our concerns on the Lord and say but God, and as we are leaving the situation with God know that pride goes before a fall. We must remember that yes, God is in control and in His time will bring about a change. Our job is to trust Him and never doubt Him.
God is the same as He was during the Bible days and will be for all generations. All who thinks of him or herself as being more than what or who they really are; God will reveal who the person (s) really are. The prideful who thinks of him or herself as being all-powerful; let me remind you only God is all-powerful. He knew these days were coming from the beginning of time and He has the perfect solution that will come forth in His appointed time. We who believe and trust God; fear not (Isaiah 41:10) because Jesus has overcome the world and its sins and wrongdoings (John 16:33).
Let me close with these words; pride is a spiritual cancer that causes a division in families, governments, and churches. Put God first in everything that we do and or say; have a humble spirit acknowledging that in Christ all things are possible; out of Christ, all accomplishments are temporal.
