He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the LORD will be prospered.
Proverbs 28:25 (NKJV)
Whenever there is pride, there will inevitably be strife. Trusting in ourselves is the root of all pride, and pride will always yield in some type of disappointment. Yet when we place all of our trust in Jesus, when we humble ourselves and He becomes our foundation for absolutely everything, scripture tells us we will be prospered. And real prosperity is defined as success, wholeness and peace in every area of our life with nothing lacking and nothing missing.
