The scriptures tell us that Proverbs 16:18 (KJV)
(18) Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." Many people are prideful and love it, and many of us don't want to be prideful at all; however, we are surrounded by the pride agenda of spiritual dark evil forces. The pride agenda seems encouraging. Such as black girls rock, or any pride focused organization. Remember wolves travel in packs that are called prides. But if you watch the commercial closely, you may notice the worship of the "mother goddess figure."
Beware of Things That Tare Us Down and Claim To Make Us Stronger
First dark spiritual forces tare us down with racism and other damaging self beliefs only to build us up with pride worship of the devil spirit of Satan. Ask and the Holy Spirit will direct you to the truth (John 16:13). The Holy Spirit revealed that sometimes we can do more than what other's say we can do. Writing this blog is an example for me. I have always enjoyed writing but if you speak to most well known authors they all claim that writing and publishing is a "special gifting." They claim it's hard and they never wanted to write and this make others believe it's too hard for them to write.
However, I have found Abba cultivating writing since I was a little girl. Once I learned this is a natural skill giving by Abba and enhanced through his Holy Spirit I could look to Abba for my topics and I noticed as I researched things he would show me how to organize the materials so that it made sense. I can now understand how my spiritual gifts work with my natural skills and writing is just one. Don't allow others to tell you can't do some thing Abba has lead you to do (and as long as it's Biblical). I am not perfect at what I do but I take action because I trust in Elohim. I trust the direction of YAHOSHUA.
Beware of Who Our "Mentors or Leaders" Worship
Worshipers of Satan use actors, musicians, famous business owners, influencers, religious leaders, actresses, and more who worship these false gods and because we like their "work" we think they are only encouraging us to have confidence in ourselves. Self-confidence is fleeting and any confidence you have in yourself is easy to sway. But! Thankfully confidence in the Almighty Elohim is what is our rock.
Proverbs 3:26 KJV- For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
Psalm 118:8 KJV - It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
Place Your Confidence In Elohim!
Avoid being caught up in the snare of pride. I began with fasting and prayer. I suffered from the inferiority syndrome which means I did not think I was good enough. You may say that's not pride, but yes that's a form of pride because it's still self-focus. I worried about what people would think. I learned people who suffer from superiority syndrome would use the old me for their selfish purposes. We have to focus on YAH. Today, I know how important I am to the body of HaMashiach because of who Abba says I am. Because following Yahoshua has shown me and continuously teaches me how to walk with him. I don't need materials or false flattery to encourage me. I NEED the things of the one true living Elohim.
