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:

Close your mouth. Proceed no further.

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

Down is the way up!

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 Available – with God and with Humans!

Time does NOT heal your iniquities.

Apologize with real words if you want reconciliation with God.

Time does NOT heal all wounds.

Apologize with real words if you want reconciliation with people.
