MESSAGE FOR THE DAY: Daily Manna Devotional | DCLM | 14th September 2022 — Damned Through Pride

Pride is often defined as an exaggerated sense of self-worth; a supremacist and negative viewpoint that deceives a person into believing that he is superior to others. The proud is always a victim of a perverted mindset, which fails to accept the fact that one’s life is not determined by self-worth.

From the text, Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash, king of Israel, for them to look one another in the face; not for play or pleasure but for war. The wise Jehoash replied Amaziah with a riddle of the thistle and the cedar. He warned Amaziah to avoid pride because of the victory over Edom. He advised him to “glory of this and tarry at home” and not cause destruction to himself and his nation. Amaziah refused this warning. He was woefully defeated by Jehoash in the battle and he lost all the gold and silver vessels that were in the house of the Lord and in the king’s treasures. His people were also taken captives.

The Scriptures warn that pride is a sure route to destruction (Proverbs 16:18). Just as Amaziah and Judah fell, so will proud people fall. A humble person is more secure than the proud. A proud person portends a bloated view of himself and exposes himself to unnecessary attack and confrontation. The humble believer however, remains lowly no matter his status. In this state of lowliness, he receives grace to make more progress in life because he depends on God daily.

A true believer who is a product of grace should never permit a strand of pride in his life. Or else, he will lose his peace and attachment to God. Pride is self worship. The moment pride begins to crop up, spare no effort in getting rid of it. Remember, God resists the proud. Let us remain in His grace and keep humble.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
The proud worships self, not God.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Numbers 14-15
