 A promise when I stumble!!!

Proverbs 4:18 - But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
This verse was in my devotion today!!! Thank God!!! When I think I am doing so good...and spiritual pride starts to creep in causing sin in my heart like Satan first had....I stumble somehow...whether it be talking bad about a co-worker or something that makes me realize I am not perfect....a humbling experience....I cry to the Lord in prayer....then I walk around thinking how awful I really am....can't even stay perfect...something so small tripping me up.

Then I see this verse....shining light, that shineth more AND MORE ....it's a growing experience.....so we enter Heaven without spiritual pride....for pride is what caused Satan to be cast out of Heaven.

Thank God for protecting the scriptures and their deliverance to us to take comfort in at times of need.

 Another Keith Green song came to mind

It's so easy for pride to rise up, as if I've done anything. I know how you feel, it's happened to me quite often. Here's another wonderful Keith Green song.

Make My Life a Prayer to You

Make my life a prayer to You
I wanna do what you want me to
No empty words and no white lies
No token prayers no compromise

I wanna shine the light You gave
Thru Your Son You sent to save us
From ourselves and our despair
It comforts me to know You're really there

Chorus
Well I want to thank you know
For being patient with me
Oh it's so hard to see
When my eyes are on me
I guess I'll have to trust
And just believe what You say
Oh you're coming again
Coming to take me away

I wanna die and let You give
Your life to me so I might live
And share the hope You gave me
The love that set me free

I wanna tell the world out there
You're not some fable or fairy tale
That I've made up inside my head
You're God the Son and You've risen from the dead

Chorus

I wanna die and let You give
Your life to me so I might live
And share the hope You gave me
The love that set me free

Amen bro, it just made me to be still and know that He is God (Psalm 46:10a)

I've had the same thing (not the same sin), that was also in Proverbs, where God spoke to me:
Proverbs 24:16
"For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief."

and their is a song of Annie Herring (from 2nd Chapter of Acts) it's about the journey with Him

--

It is the journey that we walk in
that makes our lives like lamp stands or empty winds
It is the journey that we walk in
that makes us more like us or more like Him

Chorus
So turn your eyes on Jesus
Keep your eyes on Him
He will never leave you or forsake you
Turn your eyes on Jesus
Keep your eyes on Him
Only He can take away all of your sin

It is the pathway that we follow
that makes our lives grow stronger or grow dim
It is the pathway that we follow
that makes us more like us or more like Him

Chorus

Wash away our sin and make us white as snow
Wash away our sin and make us white as snow

Jesus The King Immortal
Will lead us where the battle has been won
Jesus The King Immortal
Will guide us with His Light until He comes


and we may learn from The Master Jesus (John 1:14a "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us...")

dear bro, go forward with God.....on your knees, and keep looking at Jesus Christ...facedown!

in Christ

William

Bless God for you prayer4am!
Just been convicted from reading your post and now have a new area opened in my life to seek God for cleansing and Christian perfection. Amen! Amen!

What joy to be shepherded by the Holy Spirit!
May God search us out and purify us!
