A Note From
Don’t you love it when everything goes according to plan? Unfortunately, more often than not, we have hills and valleys in our life.
Now, if you’re like me, it is quite comforting to know that God is always there (and willing) to help us.
Can you imagine if God wasn’t willing and actually opposed you?
According to the word of God, there is a situation where he actually opposes you. OK, now I’m sure I have your attention.
1 Peter 5:5b starts out, “ALL OF YOU (my caps) clothe yourselves with humility toward one another because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble“
6 humble yourselves, therefore, under God‘s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
Pride should have no place in our lives. In fact, it is the very reason that Satan fell from heaven. Pride comes in many different forms, so this is my suggestion -
Always look deep within your heart to weed out anything that would resemble pride.
Pride often says "I can do it on my own and I don’t need God."
Or, "MY WAY is better."
God’s way is always better. I would rather live my life walking in this, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
