Pride

I will leave a meek and humble people among you, and they will trust in the name of Yahweh. -Zephaniah 3:12

God wants to get to our hearts,
but PRIDE covers the heart.
God wants to free us from any hindrances in our past,
but PRIDE refuses to take a fresh look back.
God wants to treat us with the prescription of His Word,
but PRIDE doesn’t like to be told what to do.

God wants to bring us out of dark closets,
but PRIDE says our secrets are nobody’s business.
God wants to help us with constraining problems,
but PRIDE denies there IS a problem.
God wants to make us strong in Him,
but PRIDE won’t admit to weakness.

PRIDE inhibits the journey to freedom.

The above is taken from Beth Moore’s ‘Breaking Free’
I found it very convicting and thought I would share it.

-Tired of my pride
