SCRIPTURE: Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: People have died before their time because of pride.
Sometime ago, I assisted one of my classmates who was about to get married.
My first daughter, at the time was almost 17 years old, and here was my classmate only about to get married.
And with all excitement, I did not know when I wrote a 6-figure cheque to assist him. What I had in mind initially, I doubled it. That was to show appreciation to God for His help for my life and also to lift my friend to the level I had been for years.
In those days when we were in class, it was not written on the forehead of anyone what the person would become in life. Only God knew what a person would become.
So, if you raise your shoulder in pride, God can kill you. If you behave as though you are responsible for your success, you can crash or even die. People have died before their time because of pride.
Therefore, always remember where you are coming from.
Without me you can do nothing (John 15:5).
The way to reach where God wants to take you to is to always remember where He brought you from. The grace to deal with pride and fulfil destiny is released on you now, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Remember this: People have died before their time because of pride.
- Avoid the way of pride.
- Humble yourself before God and man.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You because of where I am today. I receive the grace to be humble, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Pride is satan manifested and there is nothing God hates like satan manifested. God had cast him from heaven as a result of pride. That is why the first thing on the list of what God hates is the principal sin of satan – pride. Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Isaiah 16-18.
AMAZING FACT: Like a well-oiled machine, rocks transform from igneous, sedimentary to metamorphic over long periods of time. This process where rocks are created, altered and formed again is the rock cycle.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive victory and deliverance from every agenda of pride in Jesus’ Name.
