Good morning Lord,

Good morning Jesus,

Good morning Lord.

Good morning everyone. Believe all is well and happy new year to everyone.

Today, by the grace of God we shall be sharing on the topic: PRIDE.

In the bible text for today (Acts 12: 20 – 24) , Herod gave an oration to some people and the people kept shouting, “The voice of a god and not a man!” An angel of the Lord struck him immediately, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and he died. But the word of God grew and multiplied.

One lesson for us to learn here is that we should always give glory to the Almighty God for whatever achievement(s), we might have made. Just like the song which says: All the glory must be to the Lord, for He is worthy to be praised, No man on earth should give glory to himself, but all the glory must be to the Lord.

Also, in the parable of the rich fool, (Luke 12: 13 – 21), the rich man did not acknowledge the Almighty God in all his achievements and in all he planned to achieve.

The bible says in James 4:6 that; But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

We cannot achieve anything by ourselves except by the help of the Almighty God.

David’s wife Michal, the daughter of Saul criticised David for dancing before the Lord as the ark of the Lord came into the City of David (2 Samuel 6:14 -16 & 20).

2 Samuel 6: 21 – 22 says; So David said to Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before the Lord. “And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight. But as for the maidservants of whom you have spoken, by them I will be held in honour.”

David acknowledge the help of the Almighty God.

The grace for us to be humble, the Almighty God shall grant unto us in Jesus name. Amen.
