How excellent is thy loving- kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of they wings.
They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of they house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
For with thee is the fountain of life: IN THY LIGHT SHALL WE SEE LIGHT.
O continue thy loving kindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
If we are walking in the Light of God then we can see light. When we are doing things that are not pleasing to him (overeating, not taking care of the temple he gave us to house our soul and spirit, our body) then we know it and it is up to us to do something about it. As Christians we must remember that the SPIRIT OF GOD lives in our hearts .
We need to not let the "foot of pride," or the "hand of the wicked," take over our lives. They will cause us to fall in our Christian walk.
PRIDE---The state of being proud; inordinate self-esteem, conceit
WICKED---Morally bad or evil; causing or likely causing trouble
If we find pride creeping into our lives, or anything that will cause us trouble , then we should cast it out of our lives. These are not character traits of God so we do not want them in our lives.
You know as a child, my Mom and Dad were always saying to me, "YOU have to have some pride." I don't think that they realized what they were saying. I know that I sure didn't when I said these same words to my children. We must always know that we are nothing and any good thing seen in our lives is the Lord Jesus Christ as we allow Him to work in our lives.
In the matter of weight loss there is always the possibility of allowing pride to come in and we think if not say, "look what I have done." We could have done nothing except God allows us. So we need to always give God the glory that is where it belongs.
As the week will begin anew tomorrow, I want to commit myself to doing all that I can to keep pride and evil from my life and treat my body with the respect it deserves by remembering who is living in my heart, The Holy Spirit of God. I pray that you have a good week. connie
