Pride is Destructive

Proverbs 29:23
     Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor. 

     The devil loves to destroy God's ministries, and the best way for him to do that is to tempt us with pride! This is always bad!! Pride can destroy a church and the relationships within it!!  Proverbs 16:18 says that pride goes before destruction and haughtiness before a fall! Satan wants so badly to see us fail! If we allow him to, he will start filling our minds with negative thoughts about a situation and we, being human, dwell on it until we have made the situation bigger than what it really is. 

Philippians 2:3 

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.














This is totally Holy Spirit led, but if you are dealing with something like this, REPENT and move on!! Get back to doing your Father's work! 

Romans 12:16

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
If you have knowingly hurt someone, swallow your pride and apologize! And in turn, if someone has hurt you, forgive them and LET IT GO!!! God forgives us, therefore in order to receive his forgiveness we MUST forgive others!! 

Let's STOP giving the devil what he wants!! We have VICTORY over him!!!!! We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus, but we can't be that until we lay down our pride and focus completely on HIM!!! 

This devo was written by me:) Maggi Sellers! My heart has been heavy with this for a while so I know the Holy Spirit gave it too me. Pride is dangerous so if you have it, get rid of it! You can follow me on Insta (maggisellers) and Twitter (maggisellers86)!!

  2. I am a firm believer that it is better to humble ourselves rather than have God humble us. God has had to humble me before. It wasn't fun. I try very hard to keep myself in check.
