Humility is the reason why we increase in prosperity and pride is the reason why we lose what we have. If you want to know the secret why the rich and successful lose their riches and success, the answer is because of pride. The Bible says “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” Remember to trust in God who gives you richly all things to enjoy. Success can create false security.
God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. When Satan wants to attack you, he would use pride as a prime weapon. When Satan stood up against Israel, he provoked David to number Israel. When David looked to the size and power of Israel’s forces as the basis of victory, he was becoming proud and thus losing the grace of God. The way to resist the devil is by submitting to God and receiving grace.
