How to Fight Pride with Bible Verses

How to Fight Pride with Bible Verses
Regardless of whether you are proud because of your physique, possessions, pals or personal achievements, you have to combine spiritual, mental, verbal, and physical interventions to form your own holistic deliverance ministry to fight pride because There are six things that the Lord hates, yes seven that He detests: a proud look (Proverbs 6:16) is the first one that is mentioned and this shows us how much God abhors pride.

We can also see how He punishes pride because He made King Nebuchadnezzar eat grass when he became too proud of his accomplishments. The Bible tells us that while He was walking in the royal palace in Babylon, King Nebuchadnezzar said, “Is not this the great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?”

But while he was still speaking, a voice from heaven said: “King Nebuchadnezzar, the kingdom has departed from you! And you shall be driven from men to live with the beasts of the field. You shall eat grass like oxen and seven times shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High God rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses.”

That same hour, this word was fulfilled and King Nebuchadnezzar was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was moistened by dew, his hair grew like eagle’s feathers and his nails like bird’s claws. (Daniel 4:28-33)

From this event in King Nebuchadnezzar’s life we can see that we do not have any reason to be haughty about our accomplishments or anything else in our lives because it is God who gives us the ability to accomplish those things in the first place.

In addition, we have to give God glory and credit for enabling us reach the heights of success we have attained if we do not want to eat humble pie or as in the case of Nebuchadnezzar humble grass pie.

We have to be careful not to self-destruct by filling ourselves with the hot air of pride for this will make us float around in our mental palace with a false sense of superiority until the hot air bubble bursts spilling our lives to the ground for Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18)

Therefore, desist from being arrogant for the Lord says The one who has a haughty look and a proud heart, Him I will not endure. (Psalm 101:5) Instead, Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. (1 Peter 5:6)

To overcome pride with humility, you have to combine spiritual, mental, verbal, and physical interventions to form your own holistic deliverance ministry.

The first spiritual intervention for purging pride from your life is to pray and ask God for help. As you pray, use Scriptures since the Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) that God has given us to fight with. We will therefore call the Scriptures that we will use to SWORD WORDS.

SWORD WORDS that you can use as personal pride deliverance prayers include:
1. Father God, Your word says that “A man's pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor” therefore I ask you in the name of Jesus to help me be humble in my thoughts, words, and deeds so that I may retain my honor. (Adapted Proverbs 29:23)

2. Father God, Your word says that “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled but whoever humbles himself will be exalted” (Matthew 23:12)therefore I ask you in the name of Jesus to help me humble myself under your Mighty hand so that you may exalt me in due time. (1 Peter 5:6)
Take the sword of the spirit which is the word of God Ephesians 6
