Pride Got You Down?
Only God can set you free.
"Heaping up grandiose ideas of ones worth is pride! Humble yourself before Me. Come before Me with thanksgiving because of the mercy and grace that I pour upon My children without limit. My love seeks to rescue those who are caught in the tempter's snare. Only a loving God can break the chains the enemy uses to bind his victims. Human effort is no match for a spiritual battle."
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. Only I can set you free. My power and your faith - the faith that acknowledges that all power is given to Me in heaven AND in earth. I am able, willing, and ready to work on your behalf. I am for you not against you."
"Ministering angels are available to assist you as you move to carry out My will. You are NOT alone - ever! I have told you before that I will not leave you comfortless. My Holy Spirit will come to you to comfort and teach you. Do not listen to the lies of the enemy who would tempt you to believe otherwise."
"My power and might are not compromised. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. I am not lacking in any area. I am the Lord, your God. Trust and do not be afraid. I am with you. I love you." (02/14/2023)
I asked the Lord to teach me the lesson(s) that I needed to learn as I found myself tromping through the "lowlands" - a place quite opposite from the "mountain tops" of victories and getting it "right". As a loving father, He was faithful to respond (see above) in the way that best suited the situation that took me to the "lowlands" in the first place. That response stemmed from His loving heart that is concerned for what is best for His sons and daughters. He alone knows the root cause(s). Sometimes, we can't see the forest for the trees, and He knows that. Personally, I am thankful.
