Psalm 59:12a “For the sin of their mouths, the words of their lips, let them be trapped in their pride.”
The Sin of Near Exclusivity!
As the fool’s evolution of progress from Nothing, forgetting the ONE WHO created their thoughts;
Take they Praise’s great accolades “as if Self made” and ignore The Beginning …at which they were not!
So, oh Flesh! Seize your Tongue and give credit Above! Bend both knee and that heart you were given.
The LORD is your MASTER, CREATOR and KING! So confess that you need
Else chained to such folly shall Hell claim your pride… and all you have imagined
So quickly confess and turn back from your steps! Yes, embrace HIM WHO
calls you! Yea, harken!
As HIServant again listening closely to HIM speak through HIS WORD to correct my words,
Devotional: Proverbs 18:12 “Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.”
Deuteronomy 30:9-10 “The LORD your GOD will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body,
in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good.
For the LORD will again rejoice over you for good as HE rejoiced over your fathers,
10 if you obey the voice of the LORD your GOD, to keep HIS commandments and HIS statutes
…which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the LORD your GOD with all your heart and with all your soul!”
Now this last passage is in the Old Testament but it’s no less important to remember for our walk with the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
It boils down to WHO made who. And!!
HE made us.
Yet so many I see have not had lives of challenge. They bask in the fruits of their labors yet “near exclusively” credit themselves from Point A…to present Day.
Sadly examples from both CHRISTian and non-CHRISTian alike are all around us and no difference can be noticed from those “walking with GOD” and those “walking themselves.”
So I shout aloud to remind Self and all…”Harken unto and credit CHRIST for everything — exclusively!
Amen and amen!
