Don’t Let Pride Be Your Downfall

All of us have experienced the temptation of Satan. But have you ever wondered where Satan came from? Isaiah 14:12-14 tells us.
Satan was originally an angel. He was referred to as “star of the morning.” But, the Bible says Satan wasn’t content being an angel. He wanted to be God. Isaiah 14:13 says, “You have said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God. I will sit on the mount of assembly.”
Satan had an “I” problem. He was full of himself and wanted to be God. Because of his pride, God caat him out of heaven. The Bible says, “You will be thrust down to Sheol, the recesses of the pit.” So, Satan was cast out of heaven.
Satan had the same problem that has plagued man for years; pride. He wasn’t happy just being an angel; he wanted to be God.
Is pride preventing you from admitting you need a Savior? Is pride preventing you from asking someone for help? Is pride preventing you from admitting you made a mistake?’
Pride turned an angel into the devil. Pride has been the fall of many people. Jesus said, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth” (Matt. 5:5).
