Elements of Arrogance & Pride the Weekly Devotional

Elements of Arrogance & Pride the Weekly Devotional

Hello, Person of Purpose!

This week Our Given Purpose®, the ministry held exclusive mentoring sessions via the podcast. It was a pleasure to write, research, and plan content with our Lord and Savior. With an open Bible sitting on my desk, I asked God to guide me. I envisioned a bridge—one side on fire, the other seated near the water. As I pondered this picture, I thought about my current relationships. I recalled feeling like I had nowhere to go. The knowledge of either burning up or drowning was terrifying. So I stood squarely in the middle unmoved, comfortable, and stagnant.

1 Peter 1:7 reads: “So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
John 4:14 “But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Incredible! No matter which direction I had a choice to be transformed, renewed, polished, and stretched by our Lord. This week was a test. I had several failures and thought I was failing. But God’s grace! With prayer, my work was completed; the defeated attitude I held was reversed. Removing the toxic implements from my circle and daily activities is helping me build a different bridge. One that others will not fear to cross or walk alongside. I am changing my perspective to follow Christ’s command to love.

On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Our Given Purpose, the Podcast we began the course of identifying our major emotional blocks.  We start with anger and work our way through arrogance, pride, and fear. Each of these extreme emotions breeds and molds our character.  

This year my prayer is that we will all pause before we speak or react. In doing so, we become doers of the Word and not just hearers of it. James 1:19-21 is the foundation of this first 12 -week session
