From Glory to Glory Greetings to you in Jesus Name and welcome to Week 4 in our series on the Enemies of Praise. As we conclude this series for the month, it is very important that we do not skip this very deadly enemy of Praise. It is called PRIDE.
Pride connotes a state where someone refuses to appreciate and acknowledge God for the good happenings in his or her life. Every good happening in our lives is traceable to God, therefore we owe Him thanksgiving and praise in return but a proud person will always attribute every success to their personal endeavor and never give Praise to God.
James 4:6“ . . .God resists the proud, “ NKJV
God indeed resists and opposes the proud. In Acts 12:21-27, a King named Herod refused to give Glory to God for the great commendations he received from men. God found pride in his heart and punished him severely. His story serves as a case study of just how much God detests pride.
God demands Praise from us and refusal to give Him Praise is considered as Pride.
I know you are not proud, that is why I am sure that like David, you will bless Him at all times (Psalm 34:1).
God BLESS you
From Glory to Glory!
