Pride will eventually give way to humility. It may not happen overnight. And it may have to follow a painful process, because pride can be very, very stubborn. It provides one a false sense of security, though spiritually-minded people know it is only a matter of time before the fall will catch up with you.

To remove Pride you must begin with submission to Christ.  Acknowledging his Lordship and ownership over your life. When you walk with God you will walk in humility. Pride cannot co-exist in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit’s light reveals pride and convicts you during times of prayer and Scripture meditation.

It is also easy to recognize pride in others while it is still looming in your spirit. Humble yourself to others and trust God to humble them.

…..“God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,  7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. ~ 1 Peter 5:5-7
