All that and a bag of chips.
Have you ever been on such a spiritual high that you thought nothing could ever touch you? And I mean nothing!
No? Oh, my bad… because I have.
In fact, just last week I was soaring higher than any bird has ever flown before. I was absolutely positive that I was the bees-knees.
Then God went *WOMP!* and I plummeted back to earth.
“You know, actually you’re nothing without Me. And I mean nothing.”
And then my memory chimed in, “Yeah, remember when you did this a few years back? What about this… oh, and that? That wasn’t a very smart move…”
Turns out I’m not all that and a bag of chips. I’m a sinful human being whose good works are nothing more than filthy rags. Who knew? Oh wait…
I think maybe there’s something in the Bible about that.
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” ~ Isaiah 64:6
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” ~ I Cor. 10:12
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” ~ Proverbs 16:18
Have you had any spiritual reality checks lately?
What are some of the things God uses to “check” your life?
