PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
Pride is an attribute about which the Bible has much to say. With pride comes destruction, dishonor, and wickedness. Indeed, Proverbs tells us: "Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord." Satan himself, we are told in Ezekiel, had a proud heart because of his beauty. His pride most certainly contributed to his fall from grace and expulsion from heaven. In contrast, with humility comes honor, grace, and gentleness. Let us learn from Jesus when He says, "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
From the beginning of Genesis to the final Revelation of Jesus Christ, we discover that God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble. He resists the arrogant but gives grace to those that are lowly of heart. Since all the evils of the world are conceived and birthed through the corruption of our own hearts and the lusts of our own flesh, James reminds us that God gives us grace and even greater grace, but also urges us not to abuse His mercies by imitating the ways of the world, which is at enmity with God, but rather to Walk In Spirit And Truth. We are to exhibit genuine mercy and deep humility of heart, knowing that the Lord bestows His grace generously to those that are humble of heart.
Knowing that grace is given to the humble, we should earnestly seek after the precious fruit of the Spirit which will only develop and grow in the one that recognizes that every manifestation of sin is rooted in a proud and arrogant heart: "But He gives greater grace. Therefore, He says, But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
Our United Prayer:
Loving Father, thank You for the great grace that You show to us every day of our lives. We pray that we would heed Your serious warnings against prideful boastings and not yield to any ungodly ways. Rather, may we come to You on bended knee with a broken and contrite heart. In Jesus' name we Pray, AMEN.
