Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
When the soul of man is lifted up in him, such a man cannot regard God as God. He will not trust in God but in his own ability. A man that is proud always trust in himself and not God. Such a man cannot live a righteous life. He cannot have an upright desires. Show me a proud man and I will show you an unrighteous man.
"The righteous will live by faith." It take a righteous man to live by faith. There is no any other way a just man can live except by his faith in God.
If you desire to live by faith you must depend on God alone and not your ability.
God help me to always live a life of faith and absolute trust in God in Jesus name.
