Day 79 – Pride Brings Down a Man

by

 ‘Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall’ Proverbs 16:18 NKJV

Pride precedes destruction! The moment you notice pride in someone; watch out, he or she is on the way down if care is not taken. Pride will bring down a man! The bigger a man’s ego is the greater the fall will be.

The earlier you can identify this problem in you, the quicker you would present yourself to God for help and therefore prevent the catastrophic danger that goes with pride, the better for you. Do not allow what you have or possess go to your head. It leads to arrogance and this result in a great fall.

Proverbs 16:5 says ‘everyone that is proud in heart is an abomination to God’. Notice that pride is a thing of the heart. Nobody else may know it but you. You need to search your heart today and determine to desist from pride. Pr. 15:25 says ‘The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow’. This is an interesting verse – usually a widow is assumed to be helpless. However, this scripture makes it clear that a widow has God’s help, while a proud man experiences God’s wrath! Pr. 29:23 says ‘a man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit’.

Think through because this may be what has delayed your promotion till date; this might be the reason why your spouse has been having problems with you. It could even be the reason why those who should have helped you seems to run away from you! I pray you will be wise and deal with any trace of pride in you, and may God bless you in Jesus name, amen.
