A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: Seven Abominations Unto God. Pt One [14/05/2017]
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, Proverbs 6:16-17. Read: Mk 6:1-6
There are many things the Lord Almighty hates, but the scripture above says seven are abominations unto Him. So for this few days, we’ll be considering these seven abominations the Lord is talking about. When you’re talking about abomination, you are talking about something that causes disgust and hatred. The first abomination unto God is:
1) A PROUD LOOK. Have you ever come across people who look at you from head to toe? They use their eyes to size you up, put you in a scale,weigh you and conclude your worth and where you belong. They condemn you outrightly. A proud person believes that he or she knows more than everyone else, when you try to correct him/her, they say who are you to correct them.
Most proud people believe they’re too special to God that’s why they have everything their heart desires and believe others have sinned. No, Not at all. Proud people depend on their ability and claim God’s glory. Dan Dan 4:30-33, Acts 12:20-25. Proud people think they’re God, through their look, disdain others and write them off destiny. They place themselves in the place of God.
In our Bible reading, the people were so proud and disdained Jesus Christ, they even called Him a carpenter whom they knew everything about. One of the things pride does is that it hinders your breakthrough and limits your capability. Jesus Christ could not perform miracles because of their pride. Don’t look down on others because you are not their God.
* Father, take away a proud look from me and help me not to disdain anyone with my look in Jesus Mighty Name
