Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.—James 4:10 (NIV)
Pride is a great obstacle to faith. As humans we long to believe we are self-sufficient, able to handle anything and everything alone. Once we let down our defenses and openly admit that we need His help and accept His infinite gift of salvation, we are forever changed. We become free!
Lord and Savior, I need Your help. I will not pretend that I’m doing this by myself.
