*TOPIC: KEY THOUGHTS ON PRIDE*

DATE: THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2020.

SCRIPTURE: For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Isaiah 14:13-14.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Pride makes a man to take the place of God in his own life.

In our previous study, we saw how Lucifer, who was an arch-angel in heaven, was dethroned and became satan because of pride. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6). 

Today, I will like you to take note of the following key thoughts on pride:

1. Pride makes a person to become a god to himself (Acts 12:20-240)

Pride makes a man to take the place of God in his own life. It makes people to claim they don’t need God. Pride is the worship of self. There are people who think they are beautiful, and so they worship their beauty. There are those who worship their certificates. Those who think they are intelligent worship their intelligence. Pride is the worship of self.

2. Pride makes a man’s life to revolve around himself

Pride makes everything to revolve around a person. (Isaiah 14:13-14). Anyone you talk with whose vocabulary is full of “I” and “me” and always says things like: “I did this, I just bought this, I just moved to so and so kind of house, I just got”, is manifesting pride, and it is a challenge.

And when a man’s life revolves around himself, he becomes empty of people. 

3. Pride makes a person too arrogant to be instructed (Daniel 4:27-33).

A proud man is too arrogant to learn anything. He does not learn anything because he is too arrogant to be instructed. And his arrogance gives rise to his ignorance. So, he has no future.

Beloved, my counsel is, don’t allow your life to be limited by pride.

Remember this: Pride makes a man to take the place of God in his own life. 

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Make up your mind not to exist in pride.

2. Ask God to deal with every trace of pride and arrogance in your life.

3. Make the decision to embrace the lifestyle of humility.

PRAYER: Deliver me LORD from the lifestyle of arrogance in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: DEADLY ENEMIES OF DESTINY (PART 5).

QUOTE: Yes, it was pride that made satan fall from heaven. He was not satisfied with being the leader of angels. He wanted to be admitted into the Godhead. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: 2 Corinthians 4-6

AMAZING FACT: The flamingo can only eat when its head is upside down.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to walk in victory over pride be released for you in Jesus’ Name.
