Why is pride a problem? Because it has to do with an independant spirit. It is what caused Lucifer, the archangel, to fall from glory and lose his position.


Pride will affect your prayer life  since you don’t ask God for what you need thinking you can do it all by yourself or thinking you don’t need God’s help or aynone else for that matter
What causes pride in our lives?

Having an ungrateful heart (Proverbs 16)

Being disatisfied in life and being discontent

A lack of the fear of God

A lack of accountability

How do we guard against pride?

Seek accountability with others

Remind yourself that God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble (Prov 3:36;  James 4:6 1; 1 Peter 5:5)

Stay humble – “Humility follows God like a shadow”  Barry Edwards

Everything we have is from God. There is nothing we can do or accomplish apart from God and His grace in and over and through our lives. The very next breath you are about to take is a gift from God. Be thankful. Be humble.


Stay blessed in humility in Christ
