I'm very hard to bend or break, I'm clothed with loftiness, elevating the minds of many with a false knowledge & counterfeit wisdom. I create for many a pedestal to stand on to look downward on others in disdain. I draw many into idolatry of self worship. I hold rebellion in one hand and in the other stubbornness. I'm the scales that blind so many can't see their inner reflection. I have so many names to describe me. One of them is scorner. Some wear me as self-righteousness. I deceive many into thinking they're never inaccurate, always right and all knowing. I show them in disagreements its never their fault, its the other participants.
I have driven many to seek out entitlement, deceiving them into thinking they are deserving of special treatment above others. That mindset causes a head on collision with rejection which produce anger and bitterness with in. Unforgiveness gives me fuel. I promote strife & feed off contention. I cause many to abandon forgiveness, to turn away from the deeds of showing mercy.
I work through insecurity &fears to bring about manipulation for validation. I'm the warning before destruction, inviting my companion name haughty to assist with the fall. I disgust God, he opposes me and anyone who is clothe with me.
You have the keys to get rid of me, but I have such a grip on your mind, your spiritually blind. Yeah your enemy is my employer. My right hand stubbornness gives me full access into your life. All we need is that open door of rebellion.
What's my Name PRIDE!
Our repentance(true godly sorrow) and full submission (from a heart of humility) unto God through his son Jesus Christ, will give us the authority, the power to resist the devil, our enemy he shall flee.
James 4:6-7, 10 NKJV
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
Proverbs 21:24 KJV
Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
