A Man of God Has Nothing to Prove
Psalm 34:18 (KJB) The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
A prideful person attempts to prove himself repeatedly. Why? Because he often fails and falls flat in his relentless pursuit of perfection. The more he tries often, the worse his situation can become. Before long he has dug a hole and cannot get himself out of his trouble.
A godly man has nothing to prove or attest about his self. His heart has been broken. He is remorseful about his sin and chooses to agree with God about the nature of sin. He knows in his heart that he does not have it all together, he can never “get it all together” apart from allowing the power and presence of God at work in his life.
It is only when a man realizes he is a complete failure that he chooses to make a spiritual U-turn allowing God to direct traffic on the highway of life. God’s divine direction allows a life to shine with both the proof and power of God.
