HOW TO HUMBLE YOURSELF: What to Do When you Get Caught in a Prideful Lie

Once you figure out that you’ve made a mistake in pride, or in believing a lie… forget about your reputation!

Don’t let shame destroy you. Humility is your friend.

Proverbs 30:32 If thou hast done foolishly in LIFTING UP THYSELF, or if thou hast THOUGHT EVIL, LAY THINE HAND UPON THY MOUTH.

Job 40:3 Then Job answered the Lord, and said, 4 Behold, I AM VILE; what shall I answer thee? I WILL LAY MINE HAND UPON MY MOUTH. 5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I WILL PROCEED NO FURTHER.

What to Do When you get Caught in a Prideful Lie:

1. Close your mouth. Proceed no further in that direction.

2. Reverse your errors. Do and say the opposite of every lie you believed.

3. Down is the way up! Humble yourself first, THEN you will be exalted.

4. Use the WORDS of your MOUTH to confess your sins, apologize for your mistakes, and reconcile with God AND with humans that were exposed to your error.

Scriptures:

Psalm 51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

Daniel 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;

Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

Forgiveness and Restoration is Always Availablewith God and with Humans!

Time does NOT heal your Iniquities; TAKE WORDS WITH YOU

Apologize with real words if you want reconciliation with God.

Hosea 14: 1 O israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.

2 TAKE WITH YOUR WORDS, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we RENDER THE CALVES OF OUR LIPS.

Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

Time does NOT heal Broken Relationships; TAKE WORDS WITH YOU.

You can Forgive and Heal alone with God, but if you don’t want to REPEAT the same patterns in your life; you must also pursue reconciliation with people.

Apologize with real words if you want reconciliation with people.

Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
