Pride Or Humility?

by Hazel Straub

How many times have we let pride, self exaltation, self absorption or arrogance consume us? We rely on ourselves and think we have to solve all our problems by ourselves, with our hard work. We use our own intellect, resources and religious formulas. However, we fail to trust God and don’t have a close intimate relationship with him. We become self sufficient and do not depend on God. Worry and anxiety consume us because we forget God and his love. We want the credit when things go well and blame God, when things go poorly. All of this is pride.

Acknowledge God as your source and depend on him. Ask what he wants, listen and obey, rather than taking the glory for yourself. Take the lowest position rather than assuming you deserve all the attention. Trust God, rather than your own understanding and it will go well for you. It is wisdom to humble yourself and let God be God!

The greatest among you will be the one who always serves others. Remember this: If you have a lofty opinion of yourself and seek to be honored, you will be humbled. But if you have a modest opinion of yourself and choose to humble yourself, you will be honored. (Matthew 23:11-12 TPT)
