The Pride Swatter!


If you have ever had a problem with flies and you happen to own a fly swatter, you know the very best thing to do is to get out that swatter and kill those flies as quickly as possible. The sin of pride is such an abomination to God and not only greatly grieves Him but comes with such awful consequences that we should get out our PRIDE SWATTERS and kill that pride as quickly as we recognize it.

Years ago, when I finally understood the awfulness of pride, I begged God in prayer for the rest of my life to tell me by His Holy Spirit the second I fell into pride and to lead me swiftly to repentance. In response to my prayer, each time I fall into pride in my heart, words, or actions, the Lord brings very strong conviction and reminds me to humble myself and get rid of the pride.

I hope you will be led to pray to God about pride as I did. And to get out that pride swatter whenever you see it and get rid of it!

“Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.” Proverbs 16:5 NKJV

“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.” Proverbs 16:18-19 NKJV
