TITLE: DON’T ACCOMMODATE YOUR TRAGEDY
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
2 SAMUEL 22:28 ” And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.”
Accommodating your tragedy is when you can see what’s going to probably spell your doom, yet you continue to hold on to it. That’s exactly what happened with Samson. He accommodated his tragedy. Delilah kept showing him that she seriously wanted to harm him, but he overlooked that and finally ended in tragedy. Delilah was Samson’s tragedy.
We would talk about one deadly tragedy you must never accommodate- PRIDE!
There’s no one with pride who ever got a safe landing, no one. The number one enemy of pride is God. Can you imagine what a person who accommodates it would get as a present from God?
The scripture we read says God puts them down.
While God’s eyes is on the righteous for preservation, His eyes are on the proud to make sure they land and crash on a rock. God is committed to making sure a proud man gets big time disgrace. He resists the proud. He chops them down and cuts off their branches like He would a tree; strips off their leaves and scatters their fruit. He takes away anything that makes them attractive and useful.
Ask Nebuchadnezzar, it wasn’t funny at all.
‘God’s enemy’, that’s not a tag you want for yourself. There’s nothing you are or have, that makes you equal with God. His glory He won’t share. PUT AWAY PRIDE!
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
MY FATHER! HELP ME NEVER TO ACCOMMODATE PRIDE IN MY LIFE. I CHOOSE THE PLACE OF HUMILITY. I ACKNOWLEDGE YOU AS THE ONLY HIGH GOD… AMEN
