Pride Or Humility

Pride or humility, people live and reside in two main states, those who walk in their pride and those in humility. Which state do you live in? It is not about looking out across the crowd to judge others. But look in the mirror and judge yourself rightly.

For the Lord is opposed to the proud but gives grace and mercy to the lowly and humble. Take a good hard look at yourself and judge yourself with true and honest judgment to see if you are prideful or humble.

But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6

Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5

The Lord watches and knows the hearts of all mankind. He sees through every false and faulty persona of the man. Everything is laid bare and naked before His eyes, nothing is hidden from His sight. That means He sees when you are pretending to be good when in reality you are proud.

He calls out to all mankind to humble themselves before Him and repent of their wickedness and prideful ways. He is calling to you to turn from sin and humbly come to Him. He will forgive and not turn anyone away who comes to Him with humility.

For though the Lord is high, He regards the lowly, but the haughty He knows from afar. Psalm 138:6

He has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; Luke 1:52 

Are you willing to take a stand in agreement with God against yourself? To humble your heart, mind, and soul before the Lord. Give everything to the Lord. Turn it all over into His control and hands. He does not let down His faithful and humble servant.

One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor. Proverbs 29:23 

He is gracious, kind, and slow to anger. He will forgive those who come to Him. Tear not your clothes but tear your hearts and repent. Come humbly to the His throne of grace that you may be forgiven. I will say it again because He has declared it, He never turns away those who come to Him in humility for forgiveness.

Toward the scorners He is scornful, but to the humble He gives favor. Proverbs 3:34 

Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:12
