All the glory belongs to GOD, but PRIDE causes us to Boast in ourselves .... HUMILITY reveals to us that we can do nothing in our own strength (John 15:5) .... WE NEED GOD! Psalm 29:2 says "Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness" ......... We owe God His praise!! If you never knew, Saints say "Praise God" and "Glory be to God" bcuz they're acknowledging that whatever was accomplished was bcuz of GOD .... Thats how we know for OURSELVES if we're full of PRIDE, if there's too many " I's " in our speech.. "I did this, I did that".
FLESH likes to be lifted up, FLESH likes to be mentioned and boasted about ... But Isaiah 64:6 says Our righteousnesses are as 'filthy rags' .... Secular music is nothing BUT boasting, Musicians bragging about themselves. But GOSPEL music boasts in GOD, THAT's what makes the difference... "I'm hot like this.. I'm fly like that... I'm the man in my city.... I'm a God"... You aint nthn, SHUT UP! .. All you do is make words rhyme
James 4:6 says "God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble" ..... Let us begin to walk in HUMILITY ppl, bcuz we don't want GOD resisting us, amen?? ..... HUMILITY causes us to esteem others Higher than we do ourselves .. But PRIDE says "No, I'M more important! I come first, it's all about ME!" ... HUMILITY causes us to be slow to speak and quick to listen.. But PRIDE can't wait til their turn to talk bcuz its more important anyway -__- ..... HUMILITY causes us to rejoice when others rejoice ... But PRIDE causes us to compete and top a person's good news with our good news .... HUMILITY causes us to take heed to warnings .... But PRIDE says "They just hatin' on me.. they mad cuz I'm poppin and they're not"
Let us walk in HUMILITY (reader)! God bless you, stay encouraged
