1 Pet 5:5 (KJV) Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Daniel had served God for years, but there came a serious challenge in his life that seemed to defy all prayers. When he discussed it with his friend, his friend suggested that the problem was caused by some strong demonic power somewhere. But Daniel knew better, he knew that Satan didn’t have that kind of authority in his life. He knew it was time to seek the Lord to know what exactly was going on. He had done this twice already, but this time, he chose to simply spend time listening to the word of God. He found a sermon by a pastor he despised and felt he knew much more than. But something made him play the sermon. As Daniel listened, he broke down in tears because he realized that he had been walking in pride for a very long time without even knowing. He now knew his pride was the reason heaven seemed not to respond to him. Daniel received answers to all his prayers one week after he repented.
God is so true to His word that He exalts it above even His name (see Psa 138:2). That is why God was about to kill Moses, even though Moses was going on God’s mission (see Exo 4:24-26), but Moses had disobeyed a clear word from God concerning his children’s circumcision.
If the Bible says the Lord resists the proud, it means the Lord will resist the person consistently walking in pride, no matter who he is.
Go into today examining yourself under the light of God’s word. Ask the Lord to help you obey Him in everything and love Him more.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
