In His Word Wednesday: Ezekiel 28:17

Ezekiel 28:17
Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, that they might gaze at you.

What made Lucifer into the devil? Pride. He forgot that any wisdom and beauty and splendor he had came as a gift from God. These gifts are to reflect God's glory and not our own.

In a world that feeds our pride, we must beware of this same deadly mistake. To some it may be our physical appearance, our possessions, our accomplishments, or for us crafters, our creations. Take a moment to give thanks to God for the gifts you have.
Thank You Lord , For Your Blessings on Me

  1. I never thought if it that way - but our creations can be a dangerous pride. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you so much for this post, Tisha. It is too easy to let appearances affect our behavior toward one another. A reminder of God's love for each and every one He causes to cross our paths.

  4. It is hard sometimes to remember that EVERYTHING we have is from the Lord....our looks, our gifts, our talents. And harder not to focus just on them and how well we use them. Very humbling!
