You might be riding high today, but your tomorrow is coming and God has a lightning bolt ready to set you a blazing fire!
God hates pride; however not all pride is bad.
Pride that you care about, how you represent God, or that you have done a job well done, is not bad.
But the obsession of the things we do, and when we become so preoccupied with ourselves, that we offend and hurt others, can become a sin!
One of the reasons God hates pride is because it makes us think that we are better than everyone else. No one can do it better than we can! If it was us doing it, it would have turned out better, because we are more special than others, instead of being thankful that the person even put forth the effort to try!
Remember, Satan, who took one look at himself in the mirror and felt that God was not doing His job right and then tried to remove Him from His own Throne!
Satan was cast out of heaven because of pride (Isaiah 14:12-15).
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before stumbling. It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly than to divide the spoil with the proud, (Proverbs 16:18-19).
This type of pride is both chaotic and dangerous, because it seeks to do harm to others, going so far as to take over what belongs to another!
The Bible says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3).” The “poor in spirit” are those who recognize their utter spiritual bankruptcy and their inability to come to God aside from His divine grace.
The proud, on the other hand, are so blinded by their pride that they think they have no need of God or, worse, that God should accept them as they are and it is he that should be bowing to them!
For, I hear God saying,
“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.
Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.
His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.
By his sneesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.” (Job 41:1-22 KJV).
This spirit is a tenacious spirit, but no worries, because God can put a hook in the mouth of every Leviathan Spirit those that are coming to rip the flesh of his people in this season!
No king snake or crocodile is too tough for God to deal with I don’t care how tight your scales maybe in this season God made creation and he has a cage and a trap for every demonic spirit in this season and for all that has made a covenant with Leviathan in this season!
I decree and declare you are going to be identified, uncovered and exposed in this season – and God is going to humble you and all those connected to you will fall (like a bowl of lightning) and come to naught in this season unless you repent and do a complete U-turn!
