Don’t Let Your Heart Fool You

The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? (Obadiah 1:3, KJV) 

One of the minor prophets of the bible, Obadiah is warning the king of Edom of his pride. This king was exalting himself higher than he ought to be according to the measure and standard that God has set. The Word of God speaks of the powers that be and are coming are of God. God through His wisdom sets kings, prime ministers, presidents, and governments in office for his plan and purpose. God ordained and set up governments for order and standards. With the freedom that God has given America, we need order and standards to maintain our freedom. That which is most important is what is in our hearts. Sometimes pride gets the best of us, but we are still able to live by the standards of God through His Son Jesus Christ that will benefit us in this life and in eternal life. Before pride, comes destruction. We must submit and humble ourselves to God through Jesus Christ. Salvation is promised by God to Israel and to the rest of the world through His Son Jesus Christ. Therefore, let us hold in our hearts the gift of righteousness that God has freely given to us through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, His Son. Amen.

  1. We all know the saying, “pride comes before the fall”, after reading this though I’m a bit confused. If pride rules the heart how can God be in the center? This is the crisis that America is dealing with, has been for a long time. I agree exposing it is important, what I haven’t seen is the humility that is supposed to follow. I’ve been able to examine this now as an outsider because I live in Russia. The church here understands humility and walks in it, I see it all the time. Don’t fool yourself or others standards without humility is nothing more than justification pure and simple. If righteousness was a horse, American Christians will be crying for the kingdom with their lamps empty. It is humility that fills the lamp not the standards.
