Day 78- Wellington, Florida: Staying Humble
It is very easy to submit to our desires in this world and also walk around with a chip on our shoulders from the adversity that we have been through in our lives. Having pride can distance us from God and also make it that much harder to overcome obstacles that we are faced with. When we have a bad attitude and think that we know everything, is usually when the walls come crashing down.
Being confident as we walk with Jesus in this world is not a bad thing, but taking that confidence to a level of arrogance will distract us from reaching the goals that we have set for ourselves both spiritually and personally. We sometimes get into a comfort zone and as a result we casually sin out of a lack of awareness of our behaviors. The negative actions or decisions that we make out of a prideful spirit poison our souls, while also separating us from the love of God. That is what we have to stay focused and humble in all that we do in this world.
It is easy to fall into a trap that is being set by the devil when we stray from the expectations that God has for us. In Proverbs we are taught that “the highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who watches his way preserves his life. Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly Than to divide the spoil with the proud”. We must separate ourselves from all evil in our lives and be aware of what we are doing and where we are going through our decision making process, in order to save our souls from hell. We must have a strong heart and an even stronger commitment for life over death through Jesus Christ. With God all things are possible and with a kind, gentle, and humble spirit we can reach the highest mountain by being reverent in all that we do.
