OUR DAILY MANNA 7TH MAY [THURSDAY] 2020 – MESSAGE: LIE LOW AND RISE HIGH! THE WAY UP IS DOWN!
That the former WBC Champion, Mr. Deontay Wilder was dethroned opponent Mr. FURY TYSON on Saturday 22nd of February 2020 at Las Vegas is no longer news! The news to me was what the former champion said before the match, and the consequence of the fight! Fury’s victory came after Wilder had on January 14, boasted that not even God could save Tyson from being defeated by him.
According to “Complete Sports,after the first match, Mr. Wilder said, “I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you. And I did. But not even God can save you the second time around. I promise you that in the second match.” That was a rare boast against God! Read
Here is the reward: he was knocked out by Fury and lost the WBC title in a dramatic shameful defeat! Tyson Fury became the WBC heavyweight champion of the world after completely dominating Deontay Wilder! What a performance from Fury! After his victory, Fury Tyson, the new BASIC SCRIPTURE: Champion in full glare of the entire WORLD MEDIA and TV cameras, gave glory to the LORD Jesus Christ! Hear him: “All praise to Jesus Christ.”
His brilliant speech, thanking the LORD Jesus and dedicating the victory to Him is rare in that fashion; leaving your opponent with a bloodied face MOUTH and thanking the LORD Jesus! Oh, satan is in trouble because the LORD is a Man of war! But the Holy Ghost is warning you concerning the EVIL OF PRIDE! In 2020, be humble! Always be the 1st to apologize even when you are not wrong because PRIDE is the longest distance between two people! Pride is concerned with WHO is right! HUMILITY is concerned with WHAT is right!
Pride will cost you everything but leave you with NOTHING! The Bible says in Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall”(NLT) and in James 4:6, it says God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.” A Vietnamese proverb says: “The higher you climb, the heavier you fall.”
Hear Baruch Spinoza: “Pride is pleasure arising from a man’s thinking too highly of himself. Jesse Jackson once said: “Never look down on anybody unless you are helping them up.” And the great T. S. Eliot noted: “Most of the trouble in the world is caused by people wanting to be important.”
Indeed, Pride is the mother of ARROGANCE when you forget that you are Just a common piece of dust! It was pride that changed angels to devils and it was HUMILITY that changed sinners to saints! Close with this shooter from Andrew Murray to all men and women on the pew or pulpit: “Pride must die in you, or nothing of heaven can live in you. Yes! Pray seriously now!

1. Pray on today’s word as led now.
2. Thank you Lord for reminding me that I am dust again!
3. God RESISTS THE PROUD because of LUCIFER’S REBELLION! O LORD, shake away PRIDE from my life, family and ministry!
