-Pride is to make yourself better than others and higher than others.
James 4:6-8 says,
“But he gives more GRACE. Therefore he says, God RESISTS the PROUD, but gives GRACE unto the HUMBLE.
SUBMIT yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God, and HE will DRAW NEAR to you…”
Then 1 Peter 5:5-6 tells us,
Likewise, you younger, SUBMIT yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be SUBJECT one to another, and be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resists the PROUD, and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.
HUMBLE yourselves therefore UNDER the MIGHTY HAND of God, that he may EXALT you in due time:
-Whosoever God exalts is still humble, but whosoever exalts himself is still proud.
Welcoming each day should be a thankful moment in our life because we weren’t swallowed by the chaos and disasters of the previous year(2020)
Many would be surprise to see others again elevating, promoting, moving forward, succeeding, getting new employments etc etc and you…. NO… None of these things are happening to you, your case is different.
Now check mate yourself, scan your daily activities properly probably you don’t have enough time for yourself and GOD but others, by this I mean you’re always interested in people’s business, lives and all. Even your time for prayer, fasting and reading the Holy Bible is limited or even meditating on the scriptures but we’re warned from time in memorial in…… *Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.*
So if we want to succeed or be who we wanna be draw near to GOD and HE will draw to you.
And also in….
*Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.*
When our actions and daily activities is pleasing to God then Success, progress, elevation and all levels of positivity belongs to you.
This new year allow HIM to come into your everything and see.
*Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.*
I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES UNTO THE HILL FROM WHENCE COMETH MY HELP, MY HELP COMETH FROM THE LORD WHO MADE THE HEAVENS AND EARTH.
Have a wonderful new month and year
Do not be envious of evil men, Nor desire to be with them; For their heart devises violence, And their lips talk of troublemaking. He who plots to do evil Will be called a schemer. The devising of foolishness is sin, And the scoffer is an abomination to men. Do not lie in wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; Do not plunder his resting place; For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity. Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; Lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him, And He turn away His wrath from him.
