Here's a question of great importance since God resists the proud (1 Peter 5:5): How do you identify pride? You may have heard the saying often used about strategy in war: "Know your enemy." Let no one deceive you. We are at war, because if we are not, then we don't need armor! (Ephesians 6:10-17) Pride is our enemy warring against us to keep us out of God's grace (favor, gifts, anointings, goodness, presence). That is not what we desire at all! As Andrew Murray taught, "Pride must die in you, or nothing of heaven can live in you." How are you going to "kill" pride if you can't identify it? You must know your enemy so you can defeat him.
