Know Pride

Due volte 3

This is from Greer Ferguson’s blog. Greer took it from the book, “Praying God’s Word.” I haven’t been to her blog before, but I will go back, even though I couldn’t comment.

Pride.

Remember. This is the enemy trying to keep you away from all the Lord wants you to be. All the plans HE has for you. DONT LET HIM!
You have the power to SAY NO. for you have a spirit of power….

My name Is Pride. I am a cheater.
I cheat you of your God-given destiny … because
you demand your own way.
I cheat you of contentment … because you
“deserve better than this.”
I cheat you of knowledge … because you already
know it all.
I cheat you of healing … because you’re too full of
me to forgive.
I cheat you of holiness … because you refuse to
admit when you’re wrong.
I cheat you of vision … because you’d rather look
in the mirror than out a window.
I cheat you of genuine friendship … because
nobody’s going to know the real you.
I cheat you out of love … because real romance
demands sacrifice.
I cheat you of greatness in heaven … because you
refuse to wash another’s feet on earth.
I cheat you of God’s glory … because I convince
you to seek your own.

My name is Pride. I am a cheater
You like me because you think I’m always looking
out for you. Untrue.
I’m looking to make a fool of you.
God has so much for you, I admit, but don’t worry …
If you stick with me
You’ll never know.
