The LORD gives grace and mercy to the humble

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/19- “Don’t Be A Mocker!” (Proverbs 3:34)
Premise Question: Given the resulting absolutely abject, being completely abhorrent and utterly repugnant response that is engendered, from The LORD, when one chooses to practice the behavior of a mocker; just why would anyone ever fain to practice such disdainfully deplorable behavior?
“The LORD mocks the mockers but is gracious to the humble.”
(Proverbs 3:34 NLT)
He, The LORD GOD Almighty, is indignantly displeased, having contemptible ridicule, being utterly dismissive and derisively scornful towards those who are full of conceit, and who proudly display a high opinion of themselves, exhibiting an air of superiority, while showing disdain towards others, by disrespecting them in their speech, attitudes and behavior. But He, The LORD GOD Almighty, openly demonstrates and proves His love, by preferring and showing His undeserved goodwill and pleasure to those who are not arrogant, but are modest, respectful, meek and lowly in their approach, attitude, and behavior. And furthermore, He is also inclined, because of His great compassion, towards those who are weighted down with onerous burdens, distressing grief, mental anguish, pernicious pain and unrelenting persecution. (Proverbs 3:34 PDCP)
Bottom Line: I truly believe, that one of our greatest enemies to seeing and coming to grips with the actual truth about ourselves, lies deep within us, and perhaps it is so well hidden that it’s come to the point of us being unaware that we are even unaware of it!
Oh what blindness occurs in us when our vision becomes completely impaired by our own pride, self-deception, delusions of grandeur, our own sense of self-importance, the celebration of our own accomplishments, achievements and accolades.
Our hubris, insolence, conceit and arrogance, as well as, our feelings of insecurity and being unsure of ourselves, will cause us to become a person who mocks, ridicules, insults and derides others, as well as, perhaps what we may not understand, and therefore, will continue to keep us in the dark, with our eyes closed, entirely resistant to any reasonable confrontation with actual facts.
Our only way out of this pride maelstrom of insanity, that we may be in and are experiencing, with the dire result of our ultimate and total destruction; is through the humility and contriteness of our heart and soul!
Therefore, we must choose to humble ourselves under Papa God’s mighty hand, as He will always resist and reject the proud, but will always give gracious favor to the humble, those who are poor in spirit, as He is ever continually drawn to them.
For it is only with true humility and contriteness, that we will regain our sight and sanity in every part of our lives; spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically, and then, we will fully experience the joys, benefits and blessings of The LORD’S gracious favor in our lives! Otherwise, we experience the abject and utter mocking of The LORD in our daily lives.
Humility or Humiliation, there are only two options available to each of us, and we make the choice! Blessings…
