Pride and arrogance of the heart

Church Family,

Today in my reading I have come across a type of pride that still prevails in the world today.

Isaiah 9:9-11 and all the people will know, Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria, who say in pride and in arrogance of heart: 10“The bricks have fallen, but we will build with dressed stones; the sycamores have been cut down, but we will put cedars in their place.” 11But the LORD raises the adversaries of Rezin against him,
and stirs up his enemies.

The Pride and Arrogance of our Hearts says what we will do, but the Lord proclaims the Truth. God does not boast falsely. Many think that at any moment they can change the direction of their life, family, church, business, etc. Yet only God has such power. He makes this clear in verses 6-7 when talks about sending the ultimate life changer. I believe that a part of the reason so many are depressed, beaten down, and discouraged is that they believe the lie that they can change their life at any moment, only to find that this is too great a task. Only God can do such a powerful thing. Pride comes before the fall. Pride has caused people, nations, churches, and businesses to fall. May I encourage you to join me, by humbling ourselves before the Lord. He and He alone can save us.

Love, Serve, Go
