God Opposes The Proud

1 Peter 5:5 (NET) In the same way, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Gerald walked in the prophetic, and people received the baptism of the Holy Ghost when he laid his hand on them. He also had a very sound understanding of the word of God, and had the ability to teach it convincingly.

But when Gerald became the fellowship president, pride gradually entered his heart. He had no regard for anyone, and became a quick tempered person who was very difficult to counsel.

Because of his pride, grace was no longer multiplied in his life. Even though he still walked in his spiritual gifts, he knew his ministries were now void of God’s rich presence. He also found that he started falling into diverse temptations because there was no more rich supply of grace in his life.

Many have attained a level of grace, but never went beyond that level because they became proud.

Grace is the power of God that empowers Christians to do the extraordinary. It empowers us to walk above sin, walk in spiritual gifts, signs and wonders, prosperity, etc.

God gives grace to the humble. He exalts the humble, but brings down the proud.

One reason why Moses had so much power with God was because he was the meekest man on earth (see Num 12:3). The day he acted contrary to this meek nature, the Lord ended his ministry. He disobeyed the Lord by striking the rock instead of speaking to it as the Lord commanded.

Go into today remembering that humility is the key to increasing grace. God does not fellowship with people who are proud at heart.

Ask the Lord to help you have the mind of Christ.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
