Memory Verse:

For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. – Luke 14:11 (KJV)

Bible Reading:

Luke 14:7-11 (NIV)

When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable:

“When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited.

If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place.

10 But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests.

11 For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Open Heaven 11 April Message

A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. Proverbs 29:23

Pride is one of the greatest destroyers of men – especially those who have achieved something great.

That means if the devil wants to bring a great man down, he does not have to bother himself sending witches and wizards to that man; all he has to do is bring out the pride in the man. Proverbs 25:27 says:

It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.

Seeking glory for yourself will not bring you glory but shame. Stop seeking people to lift you on their shoulders as if you are the best thing to have come into the world; humble yourself.

The devil was once a very special arch-angel in heaven, but pride got into his head because of how beautiful he was. He started seeking glory for himself, even the glory of God’s own throne.

He ended up being brought so low that, at the end of time, he will be locked up in the pit of fire to suffer forever.

The prescription of God for every Christian is to prefer others above yourself in honour. Romans 12:10 says, “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another“.

The day you forget that everything you have is given to you by God is the day you begin to decline. Nebuchadnezzar was warned in Daniel 4:24-27 like I am warning you now, but he didn’t heed the counsel.

Pride rose up in him and he started to boast about the things that God had done through him, calling them his achievements.

He was brought so low that he was eating grass with the animals in the bush. James 4:6 says those who want the grace of God to work in their lives must be humble. Be humble, pride is a destiny destroyer.
