Sunday's Scripture #2


1 Peter 5:5-6 (New King James Version)

Submit to God, Resist the Devil
5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.

Today's sermon is a special dedication to the big egos living in EACH and every one of our heads. You can deny it all you want; but it is safe to say that everyone has felt theirself a lil too much in one way or another. Whether you made the game-winning touchdown, buzzer-beater shot, pulled 10 numbers at the club, etc. Our egos are capable of destroying the blessings God has in store for us.

We need less of us and more of him (as John 3:30 states), and to put him before ourselves. When we are given things prematurely, it messes us up because we start glorifying ourselves and think it was by our own strength that got us where we are. But as quickly as God can bless us with something, he can take it away.

Lesson: It is possible to abort phases of your destiny by trying to skip steps to get to your blessing.
