HUMBLE PIE

God created us to live our lives focused on Him.  His purpose from the very beginning was that we should be “God-conscious” not “self-conscious.” FOCUSING on SELF will always be the reason we remain stuck or get stuck. We overcome being “self-conscious” by allowing the Holy Spirit to correct us! When we hear the word correction we think of it as a naughty word that is bad and offensive…..but is it really? Correction means: Adjustment, improvement, modification, and tweaks.  We have to fight our carnal instinct to become defensive, combative or shrink in shame when the Spirit is correcting us. We have to get outside of our minds and inside the mind of Christ where we can hear CLEARLY.  To hear him clearly is what allows us to receive correction right. WE ALL NEED what correction brings to our lives. Sometimes correction will come straight from Holy Spirit to you and sometimes correction will come from Holy Spirit through another. Proverbs 19:20 Listen to advice and accept correction, and in the end you will be wise. We must become people who LISTEN!
