Pride Comes Before Destruction


Proverbs-16--3So what I decided is that we can’t help anyone if they don’t want to be helped. I have seen it all today. What I see is that people are arrogant, haughty and prideful. It is not the case that all people who are arrogant, haughty and prideful who concern me. We have to know that all people’s problems are not ours to handle, however, when it is right there in your face, this is the lesson. We can deal with it or be done with it.

Deal with it, let us consider that a moment, when we deal with those types of people we have to know that they don’t know they are that way. Arrogance and all the rest I have discovered comes in certain degrees. As does haughtiness, and a prideful spirit. Which degree we work with is important in considering who is past help and who can be helped. It is not the case that all people can’t be helped however, there are some who can’t be and no matter how we try to help it won’t work. So that we see now, some things are for God and some things are with our power which is as it should be. Furthermore, we get a clue that we are powerless without him and powerful with him; all thing all are possible.

It is not that we should continue in these tug of war episodes which led to death and destruction of life and happiness, but is noted that this is the time to get out of the way and allow Yahweh to do what he does, fix it his way. That is hard to do until the matter is removed from our hands. We have to know that we cannot out fix, work it out like he can. He is all wise.

Be done with it, let us consider the possibilities of that…we release that thing, that person which in this form of haughtiness, pridefulness and arrogance have reached a maximum limit in life. We can no longer deal it, this is because the person we deal with has become “narcissistic” in there mind, that being, all three rolled into one big prideful, arrogant and haughty mess. We can’t help them but God can. Pray, Pray, Pray and pray again. God says, “It’s all about how we proceed.”

Time to let it go, be done with it, and give it to God.

Praying for all to be set free today….enjoy it.

The Spirit of Pride

Antisocial Behavior. People use this term too loosely to describing someone who doesn’t want to be bothered with their foolishness; or who either just like spending time alone. However, who would blame others for liking themselves, spending time to better themselves, for learning to love themselves?

The Narcissistic personality would do that some one who loves to  feel superior to others.

The bible has a few descriptions of people who are overcome with demonic spirits. Every time we see Jesus some spirit is running into pigs; or the victim of their own thinking is being tormented cutting himself and can’t live among the other people. Most we hear about have bizarre behavior such as being flung into open flames.

What is heard most about the prideful spirit  are those which sow discord, who lie and who just can’t make it in life without turning the audiences attention to themselves, always have to be front and center, seemingly, full of confidence, but not really.

Signs of a Narcissistic Personality or the Spirit of Pride:

• Believing that you’re better than others

• Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness

Exaggerating your achievements or talents

• Expecting constant praise and admiration

• Believing that you’re special and acting accordingly

• Failing to recognize other people’s emotions and feelings

• Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans

• Taking advantage of others

• Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior

• Being jealous of others

• Believing that others are jealous of you

• Trouble keeping healthy relationships

• Setting unrealistic goals

• Being easily hurt and rejected

• Having a fragile self-esteem

• Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional

May seem like having confidence or strong self-esteem, it’s not the same. It crosses the border of healthy confidence and self-esteem into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal. In contrast, people who have healthy confidence and self-esteem don’t value themselves more than they value others. Also, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may have a sense of entitlement. And when you don’t receive the special treatment to which you feel entitled, you may become very impatient or angry. You may insist on having “the best” of everything — the best car, athletic club, medical care or social circles, for instance.

This spirit generally sows discord and will lie to be perceived as genuine among their friends
