Proud of your accomplishments but your heart is far from God?

Posted: July 12, 2016 in Behavior that shows holiness and consecration to Jesus, God's Love Letters to you - The BIBLE (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)

Pride in your earthly accomplishments without a heart committed to God is faith in your own resources and a misplaced pride that YOU gave yourself your talents, abilities, possessions, career, intellect and wealth. Be careful! God’s word says he exalts the humble (who acknowledge Him as their maker and the giver of all good and perfect gift) and puts down the proud (who trust in themselves).

Of what, then, should you be proud? The Bible says to have pride that you are a child of God: “Let me prosper with the rest of your chosen ones, as they celebrate with pride because they belong to you.” Psalm 106:5 How do you become a “chosen one?” By YOU CHOOSING to trust in God’s promise that he sent his son Jesus to forgive you of your sins, including pride and arrogance in your own abilities to save yourself without him.

A day will come when your pride will not be enough. You will be alone and scared without a savior. Turn to God and claim this promise: “When you are suffering and in need, he will come to your rescue, and your families will grow as fast as a herd of sheep. You will see this because you obey the Lord, but everyone who is wicked will be silenced.” Psalm 107: 41-42
