Devotion 1/31/11

Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Hearts filled with pride do not believe their paths will be crossed by negativity, for they are grossly misdirected by a false sense of security. Hearts filled with pride cannot see within their lives even a tinge of weakness, for they see nothing but false perfection. A prideful heart is only but a moment from destruction, and it doesn’t even realize that it is coming like a speeding train seeking a place to crash. Hearts filled with pride have a one way ticket to eternity in Hell, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Hearts can be changed, hearts can be altered, but only by filling them with the presence of God. If you possess a prideful heart, turn it over to God and allow Him to redirect your energy that it might be used to glorify Him and expand His kingdom upon this earth.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help my heart become cleansed by Your presence.
