LIVE BY FAITH!
Habakkuk 2:4 – Devotional
“Behold the proud, his soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.”
It is sometimes easy to think more highly of ourselves than we ought. It reminds me of the skit where a man thinks people are laughing at his humorous wit, when actually they are laughing because he has parsley caught in his teeth.
It is not necessary to be-mean ourselves in order to achieve humility. The slips and slides we make in our daily life will provide plenty of ammunition to destroy any pride that we take in ourselves.
We need to confess our sin of pride and begin to live a life of faith and utter dependence on the Lord. Jesus made a point of pointing to the sinful pride of the Pharisees that delighted in being praised by men but neglected to please God.
The Old Testament prophet, Habakkuk points to pride as a sin and contrasts that with a just person who chooses to live by faith in the Lord. The question that each of us must respond to is – – are we living in pride or in faith? LIVE BY FAITH!
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and be a blessing!
