As believers, our lifestyle should show to the world that God is our Helper. But how will that happen if pride is taking the place of appreciation to God? I've had privileges to work with many Christian leaders; and to be honest, most of them show me "the pride that they have worked hard" instead of "the God that has helped them". We may be diligent people, but let's not forget that a man can receive nothing except it is giving to him from above.
We need to watch and pray; because the devil is seriously looking for who to destroy. And one of his proven tools is pride. If he succeeds in putting pride in you, he'd take the glory of God away from you. And if the glory of God is taken away from you, life will become a living hell for you. The reason why God glorifies the works of our hands is so that He can bless them; but if we don't return the glory back to Him, there will be no way for Him to bless us. Glory is not a blessing; rather, it is a virtue that releases the blessing. Glory should be given to God, so that God can release the blessing. The glory you don't give to God naturally brings shame. The bible tells us how God punished a group of people because they didn't give Him glory. We also saw how king Herod was humiliated for taking God's glory to himself.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; WE'RE TOO SMALL TO CONTAIN THE GLORY OF GOD. THE MORE WE LET PRIDE RULE OUR LIVES, THE MORE WE ATTRACT SHAME TO OUR LIVES. LET'S GIVE GOD THE GLORY! Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
