We try to keep it inside,
but it's something we can't hide,
it's our foolish pride.
Who are we to stake claim
to what we don't own,
to get credit for what God has shown.
Through our minds and our hands,
He empowers all our plans.
Give God the credit and glory,
for the success story,
and the contract signed,
according to His deadline.
Correct people when they give you the praise,
tell them it's God's hand they should clasp and raise.
When they place you on the throne,
let them know that you've done nothing alone.
Through Him, He makes a way
for our triumphs every day.

Proverbs 29:23
A man's pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.
Getting rid of Pride; Sometimes when you look at a word, you see another contained within the word. In this case, you can see the word rid right in the middle of the word pride. Maybe you've never noticed it before.
However, when you see it, you see it for a reason. God may be showing it to you to make a point. If your pride springs from anything other than Christ's saving work in your life, then it's probably time you thought about getting rid of your pride.

  • As you fill with pride, your faith in God deflates. Remember that all things are made possible by God who works through you.

I love this along with many others. It is very motivating in a humble way. Brian talked to me about people like Joel Olsteen and Joyce Meyers who are very motivating, but that's a red flag for false prophets. They make you feel good with their own words and not God's, I believe is what Brian was trying to say. He didn't elaborate too much. Thank you for not just making me feel good but rather giving me something to think about.
