Pride-fall? Sometimes we just amaze ourselves when it comes to our own ability to work things out. When faced with a troublesome situation, we come up with a problem solution that even we didn’t see coming. Men, it seems, are more prone to this condition than women.
Think about it. It’s just something about our character and makeup that makes this so. Possessing the innate ability to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory, we often pride ourselves in spur-of-the-moment solutions that, for some reason or another, actually seem to work; at least for a time.
God’s Word tells us: “But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God, and entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense.” (2 Chronicles 26:16).
When things are going along well and it seems so because of something that “we” accomplished or “figured out,” beware. There’s probably some sort of blowout on the horizon that we are too blinded by our own self-importance to see.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when things are going along well and it seems so because of something that “we” accomplished or “figured out,” we need to be beware. Pride may be the culprit.” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
