When Pride Comes

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

(Proverbs 11:2)


In proudness, the mind thinks more of itself, by expecting to be treated according to a self-made standard of which he or she seldom meets. Therein comes shame, which ought to be a lesson, but it is never a lesson to the proud mind. Instead, the mind finds shelter in indignation.


For those that are Christians, therein, they seek the wrong deliverance. Lord, deliver me, a victim. Instead, of Lord, create in me a new heart. For this we know, when pride comes, then comes shame, but with the lowly is wisdom. That is to say, it is wiser to be modest. Through this, our expectation is trusting in the Lord and our comfort is His love, and our shelter is His promise of protection.


In such times, men will always find fault with other men, but if I make God my Judge by trusting in Him, let those who finds fault with me, be a fool to question the Almighty God.


For all those things have My Hand made, and all those things have been, says the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor (humble) and of a contrite spirit, (remorse from wrongdoing) and trembles at My word.

(Isaiah 66:2)

Amen🙏 thanks God for his mercy and love when we down our knees before him and I consider my thoughts and when my heart is wrong.
