Is it Possible to Rise Above the Consequences of My Pride?

Secured in his job and not worrying about his family’s needs and their future—this was Ramon’s life. Everything worked out for him until the pride that was growing inside brought him down.

Ramon always thought that he was just too good for his job and that he deserved the financial ease he was experiencing. This changed when the project where he was working as a tunnel technician ended.

“When that project ended, I experienced God’s disciplinary hand upon me. I thought that I could do it on my own,” Ramon shared.

Coming out of the job, he was confident that he would be able to find another one quickly. But months passed, and his savings ran out. The pride he had in his skills quickly turned into despair and hopelessness.

With his pride broken and anxiety clouding his mind, Ramon feared for his family’s future.

Until one night, he came across an episode of The 700 Club Asia. The stories and prayer touched him so deeply, that he humbled himself and surrendered his life to Jesus.

“I felt the need to pray,” he recalled. “I challenged Him that if He was real, to make Himself known.”

The next day, Ramon found a job opening, applied, and was hired within hours. At that moment, he experienced God’s promise in Matthew 23:12 NLT:

“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

He felt peace and relief from his fear of the future. Eventually, he was also blessed with an air conditioning service business that helped him support his family.

God redeemed him from the consequences of his pride as he humbled himself before God.

“When I surrendered to God, I slowly began to experience His provision. I was able to get my children through college,” Ramon shared.

God can do the same for you, even if you’ve messed up and sinned. God is gracious and kind, ready to redeem us from our downfall if we are willing to surrender our lives to Him.

As Ramon found freedom from depression and achieved career breakthroughs, he declared, “We will live fruitfully when we stay connected with God. Through Him, I found victory.”
