Psalm 18:27

Daniel 4:4-37

Where will pride get you?

In the middle of a field, roaming around with mental issues for seven years; if you’re like King Nebuchadnezzar.

You see Daniel had interpreted a dream of despair to the king. He told him that he would hit rock bottom and stay there until he realized that the magnificence of his kingdom was from God and not himself.

Eight years later King Nebuchadnezzar stood in the middle of a field, looking and acting like a wild man when he acknowledged God’s presence in his life. In his success.

After this proclamation of praise and honor to our King He was given back his kingdom.

I encourage you to learn from King Nebuchadnezzar and give God glory now so that you won’t have to be reminded that he is the one that is worthy of all your praise.

Because the proud will be humbled. And the humble will be honored.

And More

Ephesians 3:20

Ruth just wanted her and her mother in laws life to be sustained. She went to Boaz’s field with that intention.

She left that evening with more barley than she had planned on, a place to refresh herself when she became weary and food and water to give her strength.

She went into the fields expecting to just get by and left with blessings that exceeded her imagination.

Isn’t that just like our lives with Jesus?

We come to Him just wanting a Savior. But in addition to that he feeds us, supplies our every need and gives us rest. He becomes our Provider.

Humble yourselves before The Lord. He has great plans to bless you beyond what you can even fathom.

Opposites

Proverbs 29:23

II Chronicles 26:1-23

King Uzziah began reigning over Israel at age sixteen. He was blessed immensely. He won battles. Other countries honored him. He constructed buildings. He was a successful entrepreneur. He had it all.

Then came the downward spiral. He was plagued. He lost his kingdom. All that he had gained was taken away. He ended up with nothing.

The beginning of King Uzziah’s reign and the ending of it are polar opposites. The differences came because of the condition of his Spirit. In the beginning King Uzziah sought The Lord. Because of this we know that King Uzziah was humble. He knew he needed God’s leadership and guidance in his life. He realized that he could do nothing without God.

Later, in the midst of the success that The Lord had blessed him with he became proud. He saw himself above the ways of The Lord. He had quit seeking the guidance of God. Destruction followed.

Pride destroys. Be of a humble spirit. Seek The Lord and his blessings will follow.
