Another lesson

Last night I was meditating on Psalm 40:4 and the phrase “and does not respect the proud.”  A proud person will give you their opinion from their flesh.  If they have unresolved issues hidden in their unconscious, the advise will be tainted from their own hurtful experiences.

A humble person, walking in the spirit and in grace, will impart to you the wisdom the Lord gave them in a similar situation.  They will speak truth from God’s word.  Why would we ask advise from a proud person that is being resisted by the Lord?  God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

Psalm 1:1 says that the one who does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly is blessed.

Yesterday morning I read Joshua 9.  Verse 14 says, “…but they did not ask counsel of the Lord.”  As a result, Joshua and the leaders were deceived.  Daniel 2:21 says, “…He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
