God opposes the proud – reflections

“Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.”‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

I have been spending more time to meditate on the nature and character of God than I usually do!

I take one truth about God at a time and meditate on it and share my thoughts.

To know someone is not just to know what they like but also to know what they don’t like.

My wife doesn’t like eating bread! I cannot present her with bread as a special meal! The people that are close to her know that she doesn’t like bread.

God hates pride! It is very important to know that God opposes the proud! Why does God hate pride so much?

Pride makes us want to take the position of God in our own life! We loose out on many blessings and God does not like that.

Pride makes us very susceptible to the lies of our enemy the devil.

Pride does not only affect us, it makes us treat other people with less respect.

God is opposed to pride!

As I meditated on how God hates pride, I began to see more clearly how pride easily gets me from time to time!

It looks like I am an abomination to God without the blood of Jesus! Pride seems to be a vice that affects us from birth!

God hates pride and I find pride in my heart! God please help!

The more I meditate on God, the more I see that I am nothing without Him.

I choose to be nothing at your feet oh God!

Prayer

Oh Lord! Help me to humble myself daily before you!
