The a Bible says:
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
James 4:10 KJV
Mac Davis once sung a comical song entitled ” Oh Lord, It’s Hard To Be Humble”.
Many got a laugh out of the lyrics that went on to add “when you’re perfect in every way. ” Now you gotta admit that’s pretty funny.
It’s a hard look at the worlds opinion of itself.
The World sees nothing wrong with itself.
However The Creator of Heaven and Earth has a different viewpoint.
That vision the world had is one steeped in pride. And GOD above all other things hates pride. The prideful attitude gets us in more hot water than we can handle.
Pride goes before a fall the Proverbs will tell us.
But it’s a humble heart that God cherishes.it is that humble heart the Lord said He would lift up Higher, higher than it has ever been.
This morning lets turn it around…let’s get rid of all the pride that angers The Master and causes us to fall; and humbly come before him, humbly, aware of His Grace, and our sinfulness, and be forgiven of our sin, and be lifted up.
Nothing like Jesus to satisfy your soul.
Have a Heavenly Day.
