“For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.” Galatians 6:3
COMMENTS: I used to think I was really something. I took pride in my accomplishments and skills. I could say I was really good at quite a few things. As a matter of fact, some things I was so good at that there was nothing else that could even make me any better at them.
Within the past year the Lord began to deal with my pride. He allowed me to be fired from a secretarial job. (But I’m a GOOD secretary!) He pointed out that I was losing things in my filing system. (But I’m VERY organized!) I was forced to stop everything and re-evaluate the situation. I reviewed my talents, accomplishments, and skills. When I was finished I was unable to find one thing that was totally of my own doing. God was responsible for every last one.
Without God’s assistance I was absolutely nothing. I could have said that it was my hard work studying in school that gave me the necessary skills to be a good organizer. Without the brain that the Lord gave me I am nothing. I could have said that the hours spent practicing allowed me to write in calligraphy. Without the hands and eyes that the Lord gave me I am nothing. Are you getting the picture?
As long as I was maintaining the idea that I had made myself something special I was of very little use to the Lord. I was also too proud to be usable by others. I was unwilling to change because of all the “hard work” I had put into things. I was only deceiving myself as the scripture says.
