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.
* God Bless You *

Psalm 10 verse 4
In his pride the wicked does not seek him;
in all his thoughts there is
no room for God.
Let us try to make a bit more room in our hearts today for God, our thoughts come from our hearts and out of our mouth the heart speaks. People will know if we have made room for God by the things we say, let our thoughts today be more holy.

Well this may make us think about the pride that we have in our hearts……Pride is a sin…..so let us look into our heart today to see if there is any pride in there. Pride does push God out somehow, especially when we think we are really clever to get things done our way, making us feel better than the next person.
Pride can take many forms and sometimes pushes people away from us, when they think they cannot compete with us.
Let us try to get rid of pride for a start from our heart and ask God to come in and help us with our everyday tasks.
*God Bless You today*
Have a lovely day with room in your heart for God our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ His Son, not forgetting The Holy Spirit who helps us when we ask for help in whatever circumstances we find ourselves in.
