Proverbs 6:16-19 says, There are six things that LORD hates, even that are detestable to Him. A lying tongue hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pour out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
There are all kinds of spirits in this world some are good and some are very dangerous. The ones that are good comes from God but the ones that are dangerous comes directly from Satan himself.
Did you not know that fault-finding, contentious, rebellion, arrogant, stubborn is a spirit of Haughtiness? God’s word tells us to be humble and have a contrite spirit and the spirit of haughtiness will leave us. If you struggle in this area began reading this verse everyday.
You may be asking well how does one know that they have such spirits of haughtiness active in their lives? The only way to truly know is to look at your self in pure honesty. Let the Holy Spirit guide you in all truth, think about family there are some things we know so well about ourselves that we don’t even need to go to God and ask Him to show us for we know what most of the things we are doing is totally wrong.
How many times in the course of your day do you find fault with others instead of looking at yourself first? How many times in an hour are you stubborn about doing something? See we all can say yes to this which means we have a spirit of haughtiness which lays at our doorpost. I am not saying we are going to be perfect here on earth, know that is not what I am saying, what I am saying is we need to strive to be like Christ everyday. And the only way that is going to happen for us all is by the renewing of our minds. We can’t go on continuing with the way we think things are to be and what we want them to be. God’s ways are so different than our and He is wanting us to see things His way and come from what we thought.
This is why our attitudes and behaviors are fighting against God and His word it fights with you on the inside because your flesh doesn’t want to change. It likes who it is.
