Each of us has abilities that are God given. Those abilities literally work on their own. Because they are so ingrained in us, it’s like a second nature. We begin to believe that it’s our own abilities. But they were given by God to be used in His kingdom, not ours. So, what is the difference? On our own, we believe how great we are. Pride comes in and we lose God’s plan and help. We begin to walk alone. The bible says that all things, God’s will, work together for good to them that love God and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28). The only way that you can ever reach God’s full potential is that you commit yourself to the work of God. And the only way you can get to God is to humble yourself. There is no place for pride in God’s economy. God throw 1/3 of all the angels out of heaven because of pride. God keeps showing man what to do. And He will until the end. In Micah 6:8, it says I have shown you how to walk with me, to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with Me. Humble yourself before the mighty hand of God and commit yourself to His work.
