Had an amazing time this morning during my devotion. My eyes got opened in a way that left me amazed. So,pride comes before a fall. Pride will lead you to envy which givea birth to jealousy and this is a deadly venom. The Lord reminded me that the world indeed does not revolve around me and the sooner i understand that,the easier my life will be.
Point 2,there can be a very thin line between self confidence and pride. You need to know where to draw the line. So,the Lord reminded me that i am not everyone’s preference;no matter how amazing i may be,not everyone will like me. So now,when someone else gets chosen over me,it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s something wrong with me,it just means the person choosing prefers the other person and God let me know its ok. See,when you are proud,you will get mad for being passed and this will mostly grow to envy of the person chosen.which leads to jealousy. How to know you are proud is when you think everything is about you. The relationship that left me very bitter,God used it to teach me that humility is a virtue…that i need to embrace. I was bitter coz i thought i was better.
All i am is because of who God is. While i can be confident in myself,i need to remember that i am only human. Preferences people,exist. If you are not soneone’s better option,it does not mean you are not worthy or any weird thing like that,it simply means,they prefer something different. Learn that sooner and you will have a simpler life. I got that and i was like aha! I have been a hostage of my pride… But no more. I choose to remind me.daily about humility until it becomes second nature to me… It is the better life.
