Be ye also doers of the world and not hearers only deceiving your own selves

The knock out

Daniel 4:37 KJV
Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

So does God have to break us,  deform us,  in fact nearly destroy us for us to learn the simple spiritual concept of humility?

Because I believe heaven will go to any length to contest for the glory of God and to snatch it away from men who will not willingly admit that whatever we have become is all by grace

I am what I am by the grace of God -1Cor15:20
Apostle Paul

1 Corinthians 4:7 KJV
For who maketh thee to differ from another ? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it , why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it ?
- Paul again

Must you eat grass like Nebuchadnezzar to learn simple things like how to thank God for everything you have

And for those of us puffed up because we are of a higher financial pedigree than the others,  let us quickly remember that rich today is not always rich forever.

So the prodigal son left his father rich and pompous and just like you felt some people don't belong in his class by virtue of what he had. but before long was again poor

So is it that the proud natural man in you is also waiting to eat pig food in the junk yard for the humble spiritual man to hatch? Because I can assure you God has a plate of pig food somewhere waiting for you and you too may pass the night with swine for several seasons as punishment for pride.

The level you are today is where some people earnestly honestly pray to reach but can not and in fact may never.

But there you are,  so discontented, so pissed off with God,  so ungrateful,  you in fact wanna run up into the heavens and push away the angel at the gate, bash into God's presence and ask "hey,  whats been delaying all the things I asked you to do for me Huh? "

As if God were an errand boy, we just submit requests like a to-do list and hope that He's done with all of it by the next time we check

As if we can make it into God's presence with that ungrateful heart,  when Infact scripture emphasizes that we will only enter His gate with Thanksgiving in our heart psalms 100

As if the wrath of God will not appear and strike down Every child of disobedience that refuses to pay up their dues in the place of praises and Thanksgiving and giving back all the glory to God.
Romans 1:20-28

As If these such will even come any 30km close to heavens gate before they are struck down by God Himself.

And all of these inability to acknowledge God if simply put is pride.  Because we don't feel He's up there, or even if we He were, we don't care,  and we feel too that we should be more than what we are, and that He's is either being lazy or partial in not increasing us as we suppose

And this impudence called pride is not only found in unbelievers, it is also found in us Christians even pastors

And it shows in the way we love to be worshipped and we hate to be revoked,  in the way we see ourselves as wiser than others and more anointed etc

So, many will eat grass this season.  Unless we deal with pride and ingratitude together in one heavy spiritual blow (the type they call knock out in boxing)

You can win the devil by acknowledging God.  You too can do some sincere Thanksgiving for the actual first time in your whole and entire life,  you too can say good stuff to God and mean it,  you too can be understanding and patient with God while he is processing your requests, you too can be humble, You too can speak life.
