Proverbs 29:23 “A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.”
The humble in spirit shall be upheld in honour. Unfortunately, humility is a rare trait in 21st Century America. Defiance, pride, and self-centeredness are more characteristic of today’s national character. Rebellion is recurring; restraint is rare. American society elevates everything but godliness. We have steadily progressed into greater pride – from neglecting God, to forgetting God, to ignoring God, to defying God.
The Lord elevates the humble and deflates the proud; He lifts up the humble and brings low the proud. We have not yet experienced the depths of our just deserts, but we will if we fail to reverse the trends of neglect, forgetfulness, ignorance, and defiance.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD HELP OUR NATION TO REALIZE THE RECKONING WE WILL SOON REAP. We have been elevated for the majority of our national history. As we recklessly remove ourselves from God-given humility and towards self-cultivated pride, we will be brought low.
NOTE: I will take a short summer break from posts next week; my next post will be on August 2nd. See you then! In the meanwhile, please continue to pray daily and fervently for our nation. We desperately need you to do so, and to encourage others to do the same.
