Monday Kfirst Kickstart: Leveling Your Soul #Playlist

Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday, and sometimes in the wake of a great weekend and long workweek ahead, you just need a “kickstart” to get focused.  So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together. 

Loved the day we at Kfirst yesterday. We continued our series “Playlist“as we looked at Psalm 131 (Read Psalm 131) as we put our focus on the pride we all deal with. It’s never an easy thing to deal with. That why Charles Spurgeon said of Psalm 131, 

 “It is one of the shortest Psalms to read, but one of the longest to learn.”

I’ll admit, yesterday’s message was working hard on me up till the service and has been pounding on my heart since.  I’ve been asking the Holy Spirit to give me greater revelation of the areas of my life where I am letting pride in. I mean, let’s all admit: Pride is a struggle for all of us. And, like carbon monoxide, it’s been a silent killer that goes undetected. It’s for that reason we said, 

Your pride will want to wrestle your vision aways from you to distract what Christ wants to do in you and through you. This natural and gradual inclination has no desire to co-exist with a move of God in your life. It wants to destroy anything God has built. That’s why we take pride seriously. 

The Psalmist did. And his answer for leveling his soul when pride wanted to throw him off was to be in the presence of God “like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.” So this week, would you take a couple Next Steps from Psalm 131?

  1. Spend time in the presence of God. Be in His presence just to seek His face without worrying about asking anything of Him. Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Find a time to worship the Lord on your own. Get into the Word of God. If you need a reading plan to start, use this link from our youversion sermon notes
  2. Practice the AAA.
    • Admission. 
      • Ask the Holy Spirit to help you see where pride has crept in.
    • Accountability. 
      • Who is a trusted person in your life you can confess pride to and who will help you overcome pride?
    • Actively pursuing humility. 
      • Two of the greatest ways to pursue humility: 
        • Worship. I know some who can worship without music. If you need some, here’s one of my favorite playlists right now: River Valley Worship
        • Serving. When you get beyond your pride and serve others, you both cultivate the character of Jesus and show the world who He is. 

Love you all.  See you on Sunday. 

BTW: Here’s a song to put on your #Playlist this week:
