And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. (Matthew 23:12)
Pride is a character that exists in the life of a man.
No one can say that there is no pride in me, and if they do, it is because they are ignorant. Pride is revealed in some circumstances in man’s life.
The danger of pride is that it has a natural inclination to hide itself.
At first, it is not controlled by identifying; however, as it matures, it considers itself and believes that it is humble; however, anyone who corrects it will not accept it because they believe that they are always correct.
How is pride relived in our lives at first? This is being reveled as joy in our any minor victory… we have to make sure we know that pride and bring it under subjection, but even though we bring it under subjection, we can subject it to a certain extent.
Even if we humble ourselves, it will not be enough; God will raise people and situations to further humble ourselves.
When the Lord raises people and situations for us, we must accept them willingly in order to break our pride and bring us to submission.
The most dangerous is the pride with which we define, “We know everything about God.” It is so dangerous if they have exalted themselves so high, but if we are like that, God will bring us to places where we have to humble ourselves to where we were.
If a sin that god resist is it the “pride”.
Humility may appear to be covered in front of the people, but in the eyes of God, humility means that we are one summit in the hand of God.
Whoever they are, if they humble themselves, even when they are condemned and cannot defend themselves, but instead turn to God, there is strength and projection from God’s mighty hand in that humility, in that humility, is a greater blessing.
God should give us the grace to humble ourselves when the situation arises, and God will exalt us in due time.
