Pride Before a Fall by Dr AndrĂŠ and Jenny Roebert

Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV): "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall."

When we have the right attitude of humility, we position ourselves to receive God's wisdom, grace, and favour without resistance. So what does it mean to be humble? Humility is willingly deciding to yield to God's will above our own. Even when everything inside us wants to act a certain way, and the Word of God tells us something different, humility chooses to give up our own desires to honour His instead. As a result, there is no limit to the favour and blessing we will reap. When we decide what is right for ourselves over and above what God's Word says, we elevate ourselves above the Lordship of Jesus, replacing Him on the throne of our hearts. It's this self-elevation that positions us for a fall. Know that as you choose to keep God on the throne of your heart, putting His will above your own, you can expect good success and promotion, since God resists the proud and gives more grace to the humble.
