Something has been mind lately and it starts with the thought that this world is not going to last forever, no matter what activits do to save some endangered beatle, we all go to solar power to save resources(then we would just use up the sun them), gas prices can sky rocket to whatever price they think we will take and so on, God said the earth was going to be destroyed and there I will get to the point. Wise Solomon said, "Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit be a fall. Lets look at the first part,

1. Pride- our world is so immersed in pride of its accomplish, personal or group. Lets give an award for just about anything, well of course except being a Christian, I have never heard of that award yet. Mohammed Ali won many fights and always proudly asserted him as unbeatable, The Titanic was unsinkable, Big Brown(race horse) without a doubt would win the Triple Crown, something not done in 30 years. Pride overcomes people and they make astounding speaches inregards to their capabilities but not once is the Glory given to God.

2. Destruction- On its maiden voyage the Titanic sank to the bottom of the ocean before everyone could be saved. Why, you say. Poor design, water filled the hull of the this vast ship and quickly sank it. Mohammed Ali for all his boasting(yes he won many fights) probably could not raise his arm high enough to high five someone due to parkinsons. Big Brown, destined to win the big race came in LAST all because his shoe was loose. You want to know who won, the horse who was set to be last. The Bible says, "The first shall be last and the last shall be first". Prophecy in action. God has said our world will be destroyed, with all the pride that is going around you have to wonder, is it soon.

Now on to the last part. God said, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. No matter how high and mighty or determined a person may be, they will fall at Jesus feet and admit he is Lord.

Something I heard and I like, "You can boast and you can brag but you better do it right" Psalm 34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear therof, and be glad. There it is, our boast should be in the Lord. Brag on what God has done in your life, not on what you accomplished. I want to continually sing his praises, because I know when I do that my heart is joyful and he blesses me continually.

I hope you seek to have God in your life, his blessings will surely abound.
