Pride is a destroyer of life and destiny.
SCRIPTURE: Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Lucifer became satan because of pride. His destiny equals eternity in hell.
Pride has been confirmed to be a deadly enemy of destiny. Pride is a destroyer of life and destiny. It destroyed the destiny of Queen Vashti. On that fateful day, her husband, King Ahasuerus told her to come out so he could show her beauty to the people and the princes but she refused out of pride. Consequently, she was dethroned as queen (Esther 1:1-21).
What made Absalom die before his time? It was his pride! (2 Samuel 18:1-14).
What about lucifer? It was the same pride that dethroned him from heaven (Isaiah 14:12-15).
Lucifer was the anointed cherub who lived in heaven. Musical instruments were wired inside his body. The flapping of his wings was music. He was the most beautiful creature of all the celestial beings outside of God Himself, but pride entered his head and he was dethroned (Ezekiel 28:17). Lucifer became satan because of pride. His destiny equals eternity in hell.
Pride also humiliated Nebuchadnezzar. God made him to eat grass for seven years so he could acknowledge who really owned Babylon. When he returned, he said, “… and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.”(Daniel 4:37). He was talking from a practical experience.
It was pride that killed Herod. It happened on the day he spoke and the people said that his voice was the voice of God. He refused to give the glory to God and an angel smote him (Acts 12:21-24).
Beloved, don’t let pride kill you. Don’t let pride ruin your destiny; walk in humility.
Remember this: Lucifer became satan because of pride. His destiny equals eternity in hell.
1. Do not allow pride to ruin your life and destiny.
2. Live in humility always.
