talk Pride and Arrogance…..Pride cometh before a fall….God hate’s a
proud look….if you look at all the scriptures in the Bible concerning
pride you will see it is one of the few things that God “hates”….and
when we are “prideful”, God will begin his work to break us….He will
break us both inside and on the outside….and just like we don’t like
having to discipline our children and it sometimes breaks our hearts and
makes us cry, the same goes with God…..it hurts him and he cries….but
He knows that as His child he has to do what it takes to get you where
you need to be….
to T.D. Jakes today he said that “arrogance and pride” go
together…people who are arrogant usually began with a huge dose of pride
and he will cause them to “fall” and “fail” and failure is something
that will usually bring us to our knees, telling God “I’m gonna get it
this time, I’m gonna be more disciplined this time” but there are those
who have no sense and there are still some people who still don’t
break….They are down on the ground and still arrogant and still
prideful, and that is why those people still get broken over and over
and over again because God says “I’m gonna break you until you get
it”….WOW right?.....God says “I’m gonna break you till you cry, I’m
gonna break you till you humble yourself, I’m gonna break you until you
stop worrying about what you look like and what people think, I’m gonna
break you and I’m gonna break you and I’m gonna break you until you fall
down on your knees and say “Yes Lord I surrender, I don’t care what it
looks like, I don’t care about my image, my soul says Yes, my mind says
Yes, my heart says Yes, My Will says Yes!” I’m gonna Break!....There is
nothing God likes to break like “Pride”!
will break your money, he will break your family, he will break your
heart, he will break your children, he will break your marriage, he will
break your health….he will tear it all down to break that pride and
arrogance….so you have to ask yourself a question? How much or what are
you willing to lose so you can keep your pride? I don’t know about
anyone else, but until God broke my pride I lost way more than I ever
wanted to and it took me way longer to get it back than I wanted it
to….now when God whispers to me “is that pride I smell on you?”….man I
go to my knees and say “If it is Lord, get it off me please”…..it does
not take as long now to let my pride and arrogance as it used
to….experience and too many failures have shown me it’s not worth it,
not for even a little bit….
if God can’t break you from the inside(which is what he tries first),
then he begins to break you on the outside….I kind of look at it like
this….if you surrender you get to say when, where and what you want at
times, more times than others, but if you don’t then it’s like God puts
you on a time out and says “Now your gonna wait”….now your on “MY” time
and I got all the “TIME” in the world lol….and always He gives us Free
Will…which today will you choose? Surrendering or Pride and Arrogance?
He will let you choose but He will still make you face the consequences
of the choice you make….
Enjoy today’s message and Be Blessed!
