What does it take to drive us from our pride into humility?

2 Chronicles 33:12While in deep distress, Manasseh sought the Lord his God and sincerely humbled himself before the God of his ancestors.

Unfortunately, when we prosper and all is well, we may fall into pride, thinking we have achieved it all on our own. But when we are put down financially, physically, or in other ways, we suddenly find it necessary to seek the Lord’s help.

2 Kings 19:19“Now, O Lord our God, rescue us from his power; then all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you alone, O Lord, are God.”

Pride recedes when we realize there are battles we can’t fight on our own; we need the Lord’s help.
