Titanic

Screenshot_2015-11-01-20-57-47-1What comes to mind when you hear TITANIC? A very large ship? The movie itself? The romance? The sinking of the ship? Well, read on. Just before the Titanic sailed off on its maiden voyage the builders made a boast which newspapers headlines carried and it read, “THIS SHIP IS UNSINKABLE, EVEN GOD HIMSELF CAN’T SINK IT!”. Unfortunately the Titanic ended up as a great tragedy, not even after several voyages but on its first! It was sunk, not by God “himself” but an iceberg! Pride they say goes before a fall, for Titanic pride went before the sink.
When men said the Titanic couldn’t be sunk by God, it revealed pride and arrogance against God. Pride is a negative spirit and sets one up for destruction. And the Bible clearly states that God resists the proud (James 4:6). The more a proud person tries to rise or forge ahead in life, the more God exerts Himself in opposition against him. Little wonder some people, in spite of their great abilities, aren’t making much progress in their lives.

That proved 1 Corinthians 1:27-29. “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are. That no flesh should glory in His presence”. Now that’s how God rolls. That proud MD had better be careful cos that secretary he keeps nagging at would soon replace him. You have never given God the glory for your gp? Maybe you said where you have gotten to today is by your parent’s power. Maybe God has just been merciful, maybe He wants you to have a rethink. Titanic never had a second voyage, it sank on its first voyage!
The bigger the pride, the bigger the fall. Am sure you can’t compare falling off a chair and falling off a cliff. Choose humility today, its the pathway to greatness. Pride precedes a fall but humility precedes promotion. You are long overdue for that promotion. Your case would never be like the Titanic in Jesus name!
