Pride

Hello, God has given me something in 2 Chronicles 32:26 which says,

“Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem; therefore the LORD’s wrath did not come on them during the days of Hezekiah.”

Hezekiah: Hezekiah had become sick, and he prayed to God, God sent Him a miraculous sign, but he was prideful and, God got angry. But then Hezekiah repented of his pride, and so did the people. Hezekiah succeeded in everything that he did because God was on his side. But when envoys were sent, God left him to test him and see everything that was in his heart (2 Chronicles 32:31)

Us: Hezekiah was prideful, but so were we. We took after our father, Satan. Satan was once an angel named Lucifer. Lucifer was a very highly regarded angel. But, he thought that he was better than God. He was prideful, and that is what sent him to hell. We also get prideful. We are evil and satanic. We are stuck in our sin, with no way to get out, by ourselves. Others, like Psychologists that give you drugs, but someone in a pit isn’t going to help the other person in the pit very well, in fact, they drag you down farther. We don’t know how to get out.

Jesus: Jesus is not in the pit. But, He came down into the pit, and gave His life for us, saving us, and giving us a rope to get out. Jesus gave His own life as a sacrifice for the whole world. He made us perfect in God’s eyes. Thank You Jesus!

Application: How does 2 Chronicles 32:26 apply to us? We are like Hezekiah, prideful in our sin, but God sent a miraculous sign (person) and saved us out of our sin. And now, we repent of our sins. Jesus saved us, and made us Holy.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your son for us on the cross. Thank You for loving me so much. I pray that I would draw close to You. Please strengthen me, and help me to love You more. Please be with me, and help me to long for Your word. Thank You for making me Your daughter. In Jesus name, Amen.
