“Yet you said, ‘I will be a queen forever.’ These things you did not consider nor remember the outcome of them. “Now, then, hear this, you sensual one, who dwells securely, who says in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me. I will not sit as a widow, nor know loss of children.’” (Isaiah 47:7-8)
The arrogance of sinful humanity that believes they are immortal. All fall to what sin has done – death. No one is exempt and those who rail against the Lord will be humbled. Do not say in your heart that You will be like the most high. This is what the devil did and the world has been thrown into turmoil, compounded by those who adopt the devil’s arrogance. Submit to the Lord who is Lord of all.
Lord, this is Your creation. You have fashioned it according to Your purpose and in Your will. Guide me, I pray, away from the arrogance of this world and into the humble submission to Your will and Your way. Keep me from the wiles of the wicked one and help me learn from You, for You are gentle and humble and full of compassion on those who turn to You in every time of need.
Thank You Jesus for demonstrating the compassion of Your heart for the ages. You have come that as many as come to You would find the rest they seek. Hold me fast to Your will and Your way that I would walk humbly with You, my Lord and my God. Guide me throughout this day that I would hold fast to the eternal principles You have spoken from long ago. May I learn from You to be faithful. Amen.
