Pride

It's that time of week again:) Yes, it's time for a devotional! 

Pride

The Bible says that being prideful is a very wicked thing! The bible says in: Proverbs 16:18 - Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Pride is an evil offence towards God! I mean think about it- Are we really that great? Uh,no. The truth is without God we would be nothing. God is perfect! We are definitely imperfect. We sin many times each day. Isn't God so wonderful to forgive us for all of our sins!?!

People get so caught up in things about-THEMSELVES! I know that each and everyone of us have pride, because that's just the way we are without God. But if we really just sat down and thought about all the filthy sin that we do, we realize that we are nothing... without God. With God we can be something , we can be something amazing that He can use. God can use each of us to do something amazing, but not unless we see that HE IS AMAZING, and we are nothing without him. I mean without God we wouldn't even exist! 

In order for God to be able to use us, we need to be his HUMBLE servants! Once we begin to think of ourselves so highly, we loose sight of God. We begin to think we can do things without Him, we begin to think that we can take care of things by ourselves, but we are wrong! We couldn't make it without God. He should be our EVERYTHING! Christians who think so highly of themselves because they think they are "godly" are so wrong, we should be humble and thank God for his amazing grace.  I'm sure that God gets annoyed when people think they are so awesome, instead of thanking him for what he has done for them. Because without him, they wouldn't exist!

  Just remember this week how amazing our God is, and how small we are compared to him! Try to focus on God this week instead of focusing on yourself.

Needed to hear this!
