A Prideful Heart
“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
Pride is a serious condition that so many people deal with on a daily basis, and I have found myself having problems with pride throughout my life. It is not wrong to be proud of our accomplishments, but often pride can get in the way of thinking that everything we have done, has been due to our own abilities, instead of realizing that we are only following the plan that God has for each of our lives. I know that for the biggest part of my life, I had very little use for God, and went my own way and had a very successful career. I felt I was doing all this by myself, and all my accomplishments were due to my own abilities. However this all changed when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, as it was then that I realized that it was not me that had been successful, but it was simply God’s plan for my life, as He was molding me and making me to fulfill His will for my life. He has now revealed His plan to me, and I now realize just how God had worked His will throughout my life, and has me where I am today, as part of His plan for me. You may find yourself in this same situation, as you may be successful in the things you have done or doing, but you need to realize, that it is not by your efforts you are where you are today, but it is by God’s will that you have been successful. God has a plan for your life, and you need to reach out to Him today, and let Him reveal this plan He has for you. You cannot realize just how important it is to find out what God has in store for you, as your life will never be the same again. Reach out to Jesus today, and let Him give you His peace, and reveal His plan for your life.
