The wicked brag about their body’s cravings; the greedy reject the LORD, cursing. At the peak of their wrath, the wicked don’t seek God: There’s no God— that’s what they are always thinking. Their ways are always twisted. Your rules are too lofty for them. They snort at all their foes. They think to themselves, We’ll never stumble. We’ll never encounter any resistance. Their mouths are filled with curses, dishonesty, violence. Under their tongues lie troublemaking and wrongdoing.
Psalms 10:3-7 CEB
Pride will leave us spiritually and emotionally blind, deaf, and in a manic, crippling state—as we spend our time consumed by thoughts of us, them, and we, and not of God and His expectations and desires for us.
We can’t say that we don’t know what God wants for us. His Word is clear, and even if you have doubts, because the good Book was drafted by men, then trust your gut; your intuition is a compass directly connected to God. Use it.
What if God only provided for us and answered our prayers during these moments (minus the profanity)? What if He said, “I will let you breathe on the days you live righteously” or, “I will make sure things go right for you when you pray to Me”?
Only a small fraction of the world’s population.
Lord, I want to do right by You. I want my days consumed with the principles that You possess and share with Your children. I want my beginning, middle, and end to be about reflecting, expressing, demonstrating, and representing You as Your ambassador in Christ.
I don’t want to try to make time for You, try to make time to pray, or try to make time to study Your word; the world is to wait as I find time for it, because You are to be my everything. Mold the weakness of pride out of me Father. Replace it with honor and righteousness, in Your light, Lord.
Remind me of my dreams to raise and nurture healthy and loving children who respectfully and humbly fear displeasing You. Remind me Father. The great I Am, in Your name and in Jesus’ name, I do humbly pray and ask for Your guiding love today and every day. Amen.
