Lay Aside Your Pride

Description

When we are faced with obstacles that seem insurmountable, the greatest thing we can do is go to Jesus.

When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering.”  Jesus said to him, “I will go and heal him”  (Matthew 8:5-7).

THINK

It’s an interesting situation. On one side is the Roman centurion, charged with keeping martial law in Capernaum. On the other, Jesus Christ, the one making waves in the Jewish world. Yet despite the glaring differences in these men and in this story, the centurion lays aside his pride and boldly comes to Jesus with a difficult situation.

When we are faced with obstacles that seem insurmountable, the greatest thing we can do is go to Jesus. All it takes is our willingness to lay aside our pride, walk to Him and present our problems. Have you given up control of what you are facing? Have you turned to Jesus with the difficulty in your life?

PRAY

Thank God for His ability and willingness to help us with anything we are facing. Pray for His direction, His purpose, and even for His help.

ACT

One a half sheet of paper, write down one area you need God’s help in. Throughout the week, as you pray and seek His help, write down ways you see God helping you with that area.
