Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate. Proverbs 8:13 New International Version
Here is a little game for you to play that you may find very revealing.
Keep a tally of how many times you say I did or I got in a day.
Then see how many times you see how many times you thank the Lord in a day.
Now compare them.
How humble are you?
How grateful are you towards Jehovah Jireh (God who provides).
How many times does He grant you when you do not even thank Him for the blessings he has already given you?
Why should He?
I do it Jehovah’s way with a humble heart and most of my requests are granted.
Here is a good example: It is a forty minute walk to the library. During monsoon season storms can come up in five minutes and they are a downpour. I humbly ask the Lord to keep the rain at bay during the walk (which surprise, surprise He does). When arriving at the library thanks is given for nice weather. Before leaving for the library I humbly request there is a certain table there the computer can be plugged into and it is relatively quiet. Surprise, surprise, the table is always there even though there is a blocks long line up waiting for the library to open and when it does all the tables are taken in ten minutes. Again, humble and sincere thanks are given for this blessing.
How many times would you have given thanks?
“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life” Proverbs 22:4 New International Version.
Pride brings shame. Humility brings wisdom. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jesus Pyrrand (God my friend) always bless me with a grateful heart, especially towards you, for the numerous blessings You so abundantly give me every day. I humbly ask this in Your gracious name. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
