“Those that walk in pride he is able to abase.”
King Nebuchadnezzar had it all – power, majesty, greatness. He pranced around the palace boasting (Daniel 4:30) … As God had warned him in a dream he became a crazed creature grazing on grass … the proud monarch had become a picture of humility …
Everything we have, our possessions, our position, our potential, comes from God. He is the source of our strength, the giver of our talents, and the One who controls our circumstances. When we forget this, or take the credit, God may find it necessary to transfer us from a position of pride to humiliation.
Let’s acknowledge Him in everything.
(J. David Branon)
