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.
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 YouMake my life a prayer to YouI wanna do what you want me toNo empty words and no white liesNo token prayers no compromiseI wanna shine the light You gaveThru Your Son You sent to save usFrom ourselves and our despairIt comforts me to know You're really thereChorusWell I want to thank you knowFor being patient with meOh it's so hard to seeWhen my eyes are on meI guess I'll have to trustAnd just believe what You sayOh you're coming againComing to take me awayI wanna die and let You giveYour life to me so I might liveAnd share the hope You gave meThe love that set me free I wanna tell the world out thereYou're not some fable or fairy taleThat I've made up inside my headYou're God the Son and You've risen from the deadChorusI wanna die and let You giveYour life to me so I might liveAnd share the hope You gave meThe love that set me free
Thank God for protecting the scriptures and their deliverance to us to take comfort in at times of need.
