CHRISTIANS TO BEWARE OF PRIDE AND AVOID PITFALL

CHRISTIANS TO BEWARE OF PRIDE AND AVOID PITFALL

Everyone (including Christians) is prone to the temptation of pride.

Children of God must take extra caution not to fall into the pitfall.

Every child of God must cautiously make efforts not to fall for Satan’s trick of self-pride!

No doubt that Satan – the enemy of righteousness – would first attempt pride as an attack tool to make a successful Christian stumble into sin.

The enemy would tempt a Christian to be self-focus and/or be self-gratifying without the consciousness of glorifying God. (A practice considered detestable to God).

Instead of anyone becoming obsessive about his (or her) achievement, he should make efforts to divert due glory to God.

A good Christian will divert people’s attention to God under whatever circumstance!

It is un-disputable fact to state that no one can successfully make anything happen without the help of God.

“…A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven” (John 3:27 KJV)

Christians to learn from Apostle Paul (in the bible); with the use of his personal experience, he analyzed how Satan can manipulate anyone into pride – through his personal achievements.

Paul stated,

“…And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.

Concerning this thing, I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me,

“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9).

To Be Reminded Of Christians’ Need To Take Caution

 

  • The flesh wants self-gratification. We must not allow it.
  • Satan wants us to choose the pathway of pride to trip and fall. We must not allow him.
  • God dislikes any gratification that voids the praise of his name. We must give God his due honor.
  • Christians must yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit and refuse to satisfy the desires of self.

Don’t get confused about Pride

 

  • It is important to note there is nothing bad in taking pride in achievement if due honor is given to God.
  • Pride of achievement is only considered erratic when a person pretends he has earned his success without God’s help.

Never Forget!

 

    • God wants to take pride out of us to bless us more.

 

  • God wants to demonstrate to everyone around that he is the brain behind our success.

 

A thoughtful believer will honor God for his/her achievement.

Will you pray for the grace to do so?

prayer

 

Prayer of Grace to Practice Humility Before God

Dear God, please make me a Christian that appreciates you for my achievements.

Give me the grace to appreciate your help in everything I do.

Enable me with the courage to honor you over my achievement so that you can be happy with me, and be motivated to bless me more.

Empower me through your Holy Spirit to live a pleasant life before you always.

For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

Faith That Works Than Charms! (Part 1)

Faith That Works Than Charms! (Part 1)

Faith That Works Than Charms! (Part 1)

Some bible patriarchs made unpopular decisions through faith, and God stood by them to honor himself in their situations.

The Creator was ensured to honor them since they put their faith into practice to glorify his name.

We have read in the scriptures about how God turned difficult situations around for people who exercised faith.

We’ve read about Daniel in the lions den, Three Hebrew boys in furnace fire, Esther and Mordechai in Shushan Palace, David combating a giant, and much more.

david and goliath

If Christians serve the same God who reigned during bible time, will he be willing to help them today as he did for bible patriarchs? Absolutely yes!

The same God of Daniel, Shadrak, David, and Esther is still alive, and he is very much available and willing to help people who exercise their faith in him.

Faith is all it takes to tap into God’s resources! The bible patriarchs practiced stubborn faith and it worked for them, similar faith will also earn present days believers their expected testimony.

Belief

Faith in God is what makes Christianity meaningful. Without faith being part of an equation, Christian religion will not be exceptional from other religions. In fact, the absence of faith will equate Christianity to paganism.

Any believer who hopes to receive God’s full benefits must be ready to operate in defiant faith that the devil cannot overcome.

In order words, Christians must live by faith, walk by faith, and act in faith.

Surely, an affirmed faith exercise will turn things around for believers.

It will subdue mountains and level valleys until a believer can triumph to share a testimony.

question

Easier said than done, it may not be that easy to exercise faith during difficult situations except some important factors are put into place.

Those details that will help anyone sail unto victory during difficult situations are therefore scheduled to be unraveled in December edition of Trumpet Media newsletter.

Do You Serve An Unstoppable God?

Do You Serve An Unstoppable God?

You should know that God is an unstoppable deity that no one can stop under whatever circumstance.

Have you made your enemies realize they are just wasting their time trying to mess with you – since you are a child of “an unstoppable God?”

Devil is an enemy of righteousness that would intend to attack God’s children.

Christians must prove the awesomeness of their God by keeping the enemy to his debased status.

Each Christian ought to declare with the full affirmation: “No enemy can stop me because I serve an unstoppable God!”

Satan the enemy of righteousness has the common practice of harassing God’s children with the goal of forcing them into subjection and rob them of their blessings.

Christians must be vigilant to stomp their feet in defiance to the enemy’s attacks and prevail over him.

How more firm do I need to stress the need for Christians to understand their worth in God?

Believers are far from being ordinary people. We have the authority of Jesus Christ endowed on us to live above any limitation that the enemy may want to impose on us.

Indeed, we Christians must understand the strength of an invincible God invested in us. In as much the Creator is alive, there is no force, assault, or the onslaught of the enemy that can prevail over us.

Once believers understand their worth, Satan has no choice than to go and hide in the cocoon of his debased status. How far can your enemy run from God’s fierce arrow? ☺

 

The Major Facts That Satan Will Prevent Anyone From Knowing

weaponSatan understands the effective weapons that we children of God can use against him and prevail.

His goal is to prevent us from utilizing the weapons so that we can live under his subjection and prey on us.

The enemy will gain ground against believers in as much he can keep us distracted from using our effective weapons! Believers must understand their roles – as God’s children.

We must understand our rights and exercise them appropriately.

Faith Works

Any Christian who maintains his stand to declare his unbeatable faith in God will fight the devil to a standstill and prevail over him.

However, it is very unfortunate that many people are ignorant of the devil’s plots.

They have been wrongly indoctrinated to assume the enemy as an “All-powerful” being. Whereas he is not!

Satan is nobody special – other than a fallen angel who rebelled against God and was ousted from his prestigious position to await the eternal punishment of hellfire.

“How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:12-14, NIV).

Unfortunately, Satan – the disposed of fallen angel and his co-culprits have manipulated people to ignorantly presume him of having a supreme capability.

The enemy instigated fear into people’s minds, causing them to walk naively into his traps to suffer.

Those victims are out there trying to figure out the way out of their troubles.

How better precise can the Bible be when it declares,

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, KJV).

 

Christian Be Vigilant – Your Enemy Is Full of Garbage!

Get the fact fast and get it right. Satan manipulates his prey to believe his deceptions that he is an “All-powerful” being.

Indeed, the enemy may be skillful, but not without flaws.bible application

Satan does not have all-encompassing strength. He has weaknesses that he keeps from his prey.

 

Ruminate on These Facts!

Whatever notion that could make anyone assume Satan as an “All-powerful creature” ought to be declared absurdity! How can a “created creature” be considered as an “All-powerful being?”

Guess what? The enemy tells lies and creates false impressions. He manipulates the naïve to perceive him as the most powerful being.

However in the real sense,
Satan is nobody special other than a bigot creature doomed to the eternal condemnation of hellfire!

Everyone must understand that a “created” creature (Satan) cannot be more powerful than his creator (God).

“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand” (Isaiah 64:8, NIV)

 

The Word Will Liberate You

word liberateThe means of prevailing over Satan – the adversary of God’s children – is to have a clear understanding of God’s word.

Whoever wants to live a victorious life on earth must give him or herself into thorough studying of God’s word.

The need for having a deeper understanding of God’s word cannot be over-emphasized.

A Christian who expects to live a triumphant life on earth must know what the Bible has for him (or her)!

Don’t forget how we started this journey. The topic of discussion remains, “Do You Serve an Unstoppable God?”

Don’t ignore this question but give your affirmative YES for it.

No Christian should assume any devil, demon, or human can stop him from reaching God’s ultimate position designated for his life.

Again, a serious Christian should understand that he or she is serving God that no one can stop.

The Bible states,

“If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31, KJV)

Know who you are in God, and you will live triumphantly throughout the days of your life.

Give an affirmative response that your God – whom you serve – cannot be stopped by whatever circumstance.

The enemy may try to stop you, but he will ultimately fail since you serve an “All-powerful – the Almighty God.”

Saul vs David

Saul attempted David’s life many times. He schemed some persuasive methods to attack and kill the young man.

He even promoted David and set him up for failure, but the young man came on top of the scheme.

When all manipulations have failed, Saul launched direct attacks and mobilized his entire army to go after David.

Guess what? David still prevailed!

None of Saul’s attempts to get rid of David worked – because he served God that no one can stop.

(1 Samuel 18:10-11; 1 Samuel 18:17-21; 1 Samuel 19:9-11; 1 Samuel 20:31; 1 Samuel 23:8; 1 Samuel 31:1-6)

Sennacherib vs Hezekiah

King Sennacherib had a superior army and disdained King Hezekiah to his face.

He even cursed Hezekiah’s God and asked his captain to speak in the Hebrew Language to demean his people.

Sennacherib lashed out to Hezekiah’s people and said,

“Does not Hezekiah persuade you to give yourselves over to die by famine and by thirst, saying, “The Lord our God will deliver us from the hand of the king of Assyria”? Has not the same Hezekiah taken away His high places and His altars, and commanded Judah and Jerusalem, saying, “You shall worship before one altar and burn incense on it”?

Do you not know what I and my fathers have done to all the peoples of other lands? Were the gods of the nations of those lands in any way able to deliver their lands out of my hand?

Who was there among all the gods of those nations that my fathers utterly destroyed that could deliver his people from my hand, that your God should be able to deliver you from my hand?

Now, therefore, do not let Hezekiah deceive you or persuade you like this, and do not believe him; for no god of any nation or kingdom was able to deliver his people from my hand or the hand of my fathers. How much less will your God deliver you from my hand?’” (2 Chronicles 32:11-15, NKJV).

God fought for Hezekiah (who reserved his trust in him). Hezekiah did not lift a finger, yet Sennacherib lost the war.

Not only that, but the arrogant king also slumbered to a mysterious death from the sword of his own children. (2 Chronicles 32:20-22).

Lessons to Learn from the Old Kings

 

  • Enemy Will Make Some Efforts
    Satan will try to stop you from having peace and success, but he will ultimately fail.
    Size does not matter when it turns to have faith in God. Jehovah will defend his people irrespective of size, weapon, or influence.Every attempt that Satan makes against you will fail, and you will have victory over him.
  • Don’t Be Scared, Enemy Can’t Win
    Satan will try all means to stop you from reaching your goals.
    His targets may include family, finance, career, and health. The enemy has no other job than to harass God’s children.However, the fact that the enemy will attempt to assault you should not make you scare since you have an unstoppable God that lives in you.

Bible Reader Plan-928

Do you serve Unstoppable God – the one that no one can restrict?

The enemy will try all means to stop you from reaching your goals. His targets may include family, finance, career, and health.

Something not funny about this subject matter is that Satan has gotten advanced in his tactics against believers.

His improved methods include using systematic attacks that are not easily detected.

Have you wondered why nothing you do ever come to the positive side of your boss?

Have you been depressed and dropped your vision because some people are unfair and have fabricated lies against you?

Have you considered yourself a victim of rumors from both friends and enemies – neighbors, family, classmates, coworkers, church members, government authority, and others?

 

Be Smart Above and Beyond: Satan has worse intentions

be smart“The thief (Devil) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus Christ) have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10, NKJV).

Get the grip of your irresistible faith in God, because Satan is all set to stop you by all means.

You shouldn’t give him a chance! The enemy may try you, but he will eventually stumble and fail if you remain immovable in your confession of faith.

Your stand of faith to declare, “The enemy cannot stop me” will pay off eventually.

You will rise higher and higher, while your adversary keeps stumbling.

The enemy’s influences will eventually diminish and shrink to significantly nothing. ☺

If you remain confident in God and declare your unswerving faith that you serve God that no one can stop, you will laugh in victory and have a superb testimony.

Jehovah God watches over his children, and he will take care of their business at all costs to glorify his name.

In this case, you are the child of God destined to prevail over your challenges.

I tell you my friend, whoever attempts your failure is wasting his or her time because you serve an unstoppable God!

M

ay God bless you!

Cheers,
James Taiwo
