Don't Let Pride Rule You

We all fear the times of trouble, the times when we are vulnerable. We hate to seem weak. We like to be independent. We are taught to be independent, in our teenage years we fight to get it. Our culture is all about being independent, but our culture is wrong. Pride runs rampant when we are talking about our independence.

Psalm 34:8 "Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him!"

Isaiah 26:4 "Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock."

Proverbs 15:29 "The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous."

God is always there for us, waiting for us to ask for His help. How often do we do things the hard way, because we don't think to ask for help? How often are we sick, and don't pray for healing? Can't pay a bill and go to our credit cards to bail us out? How often do we face any one of the dozens of everyday troubles and deal with it ourselves?

Best Advice. Don't be foolish. God is there for us. He wants to be a part of our everyday lives. Now, this doesn't mean that we should only be talking to God when we have problems. We should be living like He is always there next to us, always aware of His presence. But we should never be afraid to ask for help. Let your weakness show His strength. The Bible tells us of several times where situations had been set up to show glory to God. Let the situations in your own life show glory to God.

  1. Thanks for in my weaknesses God's strength is made perfect, thanks for I glory in my weaknesses fro then I see I need God period over a stepping stone to become higher and higher that leads to thinking one does not need God, when in reality we do, whether one sins or not.
    Unfortunately is used to keep one in sin, a mis use of God's perfection, For God by Christ made one Holy by Son's death for us, first and foremost that is done Col 1:22. Yet death is not life.
    Life is in the resurr3ected Christ alive forever more now our high priest, Out od the tribe of Judah, for all are now welcome to come and get new life in Spirit of Yeweh. Cool yes?
