Stripping Off the Mask of Pride

It is all too common for a marvelous move of the Spirit to come to a halt due to the efforts of men and women to control it. Pride is the fastest way to find oneself estranged from God’s will because God sets Himself against the proud.

Read 2 Chron. 32:24-31, Ps. 138:6, Prov. 8:13; 11:2, Prov. 13:10; 16:18-19, Prov. 29:23, Mark 7:18-23

Heart Issue

People who are insecure have as much a problem with pride as those who are boastful. Shyness can mask an inappropriate fear of man. We must fear God more.


Father, forgive us. We’ve tolerated haughtiness in ourselves and lauded it in others. Deliver us from selfish interests and the need to be seen, heard, promoted or praised. Make us mindful that Your approval matters most. Amen.
