Kill the Pride

Proverbs 8:13  To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.

Proverbs 16:18, 19   Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.  Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.  

Daniel 4:37  . . . those who walk in pride HE is able to humble.

Amazing isn’t it how someone elses pride can cause us to also act prideful?  God hates pride, so why would I want that?  I don’t.  After re-evaluating all that is going on in my life, God has been very faithful to show me a different picture.  First my hurt and anger are only pride, and it needs to die.  Everything is about HIM!  So once removing myself from this picture, all that is in front of me is my cross. 

Luke 9:23  If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross DAILY and follow me.

Think we forget the daily part. . .sometimes we think we already did that, and Father God says “do it some more”.  I am not going to pretend to know HIS ways, or to ever try to describe HIM as HE is so far beyond my brain power, but I know HIS word is truth, and I know selecting HIS way is hard to do sometimes, but once it is chosen, there is nothing better.  I would rather sit with the oppressed, than take plunder with the prideful.  People (in general) have decided that kindness is weakness, and that is so very far from the truth.  Today I choose forgiveness, I want nothing between HIM and I.  I choose joy! I choose to love!  I choose to pick up my cross and keep moving on this road, actually this cross is lighter than than carrying all that grief!
