~Don't be Prideful~

Proverbs 11:2
"2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with the humble is wisdom."
Proverbs 16:18-20
Something that we all seem to struggle with in our lives is pride, we may not realize it at first or sometimes we never realize just how prideful we have become until God reveals it to us but the truth is it's in our human nature to become prideful but God can help us in that area so that we can become free from that! 
One way that you can destroy pride is to work on your humility, if you are humble then pride can no longer dwell inside your temple and pride is destroyed!
"18 Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor
than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good,
and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord."
Have you been feeling selfish lately? Have you been feeling like you haven't been doing your part? Maybe you're feeling that way because pride has formed inside of you where humility once dwelled..Give your pride to God and ask him to help you! Ask God to help you to think of others like you used to, ask him to put a passion back inside of you like you used to have! God isn't through with you just because you're having a tough time right now because of the way you're feeling..he's still in control of your life, you just need to raise your hands and ask God to redirect your path! You need God to help you to find your way back to his ways in your life! Give it all to him and allow God to restore you and give you freedom from pride! Don't allow Satan to steal things from you due to pride that is inside of you..surrender that to God and God will use you for his glory!
