“Lay upon me Thy easy yoke of self-forgetfulness that through it I may find rest.” A.W.Tozer
A book I read when I was a wee-teen, The First Deadly Sin by Lawrence Saunders, always comes to mind when I am challenged in my everyday walk. Odd as it may seem to you, but in it, the author refers to Pride as the first deadly sin. I never forgot that.
It is, as the Bible tells us from the very beginning the cause of all the mayhem in this world. “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall,” Proverbs 16:18 one of the early proverbs my younger daughter memorized when she was in Kindergarten…and I with her, fulfilled 100 verses that year.
I find this last line of Tozer’s prayer an easy solution to remember when my “self-life” demands to rise. For I was in fact, the queen of pride…still am.
If I do not purposely begin each day acknowledging God and who He is in my life, I know that I will rest on my self-reliance very quickly. I also have come to realize that life without God first, God second, and God third every day that I am awake, is a labor in self-love.
It is insane to live today like there is no tomorrow, musing in self-indulgence! It is the very thing that I despise! Therefore my need for His grace to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit every moment, every single day becomes the cry of my heart…all of 86,400 seconds…525,600 minutes.
His rest is all I desire. “Come unto Me, all you who labor and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
