Are we Proud ?
Psalm 131 verse 1
My hearty is not proud, O LORD,
my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
too wonderful for me.
If only we could say this today and mean it! Can I really say that my heart is not proud, that my eyes are not haughty. Can I really say that I do not concrn myself with things that I shouldn’t? I would like to think so but sometimes it is a fearful thing to ask The LORD to search our hearts about these matters isn’t it? So today LORD I do ask you to show me and help me to overcome the things that I need to overcome. By your grace only can I do it, with the help of The Holy Spirit – The Spirit of Jesus.

Maybe today is a good day to Pray.
Do we have any Proud thoughts about ourselves? Maybe we think we are better than other people, perhaps we think we are much better than our friends in the way we dress or eat or drink or even that our thoughts are more spiritual than those we meet up with in Church……..Well be had better watch out because God is watching us as we are watching them.
This could be a challenge for us today – to begin to think ( where we are at ? ) when we try to compare ourselves with others.
Dosn’t sound a good idea to take up the challenge but if we have a spirit of Pride in us – well we best get rid of it don’t you think. Amen.
I Pray that you have a lovely Day getting rid of Pride and not worring about things too wonderful to comprehend.
Just Rest in The Lord Jesus – give Him all your cares and worries today.
