Dealing With Pride

1. Ask God to show us areas in our lives where we might have been prideful. (Psalm 139:23-24)  

2. As God shows us those areas, we should confess our pride to God and ask for His forgiveness. (1 John 1:9).

3. We don’t need to ask God to humble us– His Word tells us that we should humble ourselves. (1 Peter 5:6).

4. Ask God to give you a holy hatred for pride and its fruits in your life. Be continually on the alert. (Proverbs 8:13)

 5. Ask God to give us a desire not to take credit for things we do.  (Matthew 6:3)

 6. Ask God to show us ways we can serve others…no matter their station in life. (Philippians 2:4)

7. Think more about God and less about ourselves. We can do this by regularly studying about the goodness and greatness of God.
(Psalm 71:19)

9. Live to promote the reputation of God and not our own. We must find our satisfaction in Him and not in our vain accomplishments. (Psalm 10:4)

10. Since our war against pride is never over, we must  constantly put our pride to death and put on humility. (Proverbs 15:33)
