I will break down your stubborn pride and make the sky above you like iron and the ground beneath you like bronze.
Don’t be so full of pride that you refuse to ask for or receive help. Don’t be so full of pride that you stubbornly live within yourself and never live freely in the world.
You cannot hide from God. You can’t hide your fears, disappointments, anger, frustration, pain, sorrow, resentment, pride, love, joy, happiness, desires, envy, jealousy, greed, contentment, irritation, goals, dreams, or ideas.
So stop trying to be something and someone you’re not, with God, and with the rest of the world. Open up, reveal yourself, and humbly ask the Lord to make you whole. Ask God to make the crookedness in your life straight, the bumpiness smooth, the torn mended, and ask for help to be all that you can be.
Father, thank You for making the necessary adjustments in my life, even those that caused me discomfort. Thank You for chipping away at my rough sides and anointing me so that my heart may soften to Your molding.
Father, I do not want to be stubborn, prideful, arrogant, or bitter. Touch me Lord. In areas and ways that I displease You, make me right and whole. In Your name I pray. Amen.
