Foundation of Self

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” -Galatians 6:14 (NKJV)

 

“Humility is not thinking less of ourselves,

but thinking of ourselves less.”

C.S. Lewis

 

Pride is built on a foundation of self.  It is one of Satan’s sure-fire ways to ultimately fail. If we puff ourselves up enough or even say we’re not good enough, we will fail; we will fall and remove all claims of success.  However…we can change that prideful attitude by looking to Jesus, building our foundation on Him alone.  He is our Cornerstone, our Victory.  We can succeed IF we truly humble ourselves before God, giving Him every little detail, ALL control to Him.
