Pride Is Not Of God

We live our lives hiding behind things, and people, and most of us don’t know who we truly are. How can we live our lives being transparent – naked, to others, when we are not transparent – naked, with ourselves.

We allow ourselves to be deceived by Satan, and most don’t do anything about it because we believe that’s the way it is. It’s not!

Satan has a way with us through pride. He tells us that being humble is weak, and pride is strength. Sorry to burst your bubble satan, because it’s the opposite. Pride is of the world, which is weakness and shame.  Humility is of God, which is strength and honor.

Therefore, walk in humility.

Proverbs 29:23 (KJV) – a man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

I John 2:16 – for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
