Pastor Dewey Note: Many, not a few, politicians put themselves above God! They have such a BIG EGO! Do you know what ego stands for? Edging God Out! We continue to see this play out in America! I pray you see this! We are paying a deep price for so called leaders with BIG EGOES! Sinful! We used to say ‘Back in the day’ check your ego at the door! We also used to say ‘Back in the day’ God does not need any egomaniacs!!!! It is a disease in the body of Christ. I see it! I hear it! I need to start a column “Back in The Day” when the Church preached THE TEN COMMANDMENTS!

PRAY OVER THIS

“Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.’”

PONDER THIS

When people are filled with pride, do you know what happens to them? They do not receive the grace of God because God gives grace to the humble. When a person is full of pride, grace is withdrawn, and God sets up a barricade against that person. God resists the proud. Now that’s bad enough, but go down to verse eight. First Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” Can you imagine an individual like this? Devoid of the grace of God; God resisting him; Satan circling to devour him. That’s what pride does. Nothing puts a person more out of the reach of Satan than genuine humility.

  • How can you know if you are driven by pride or humility?
  • How does following Jesus lead us to humility?

PRACTICE THIS

Consider the areas of pride in your life. Take intentional and prayerful steps toward humility in these places today.
