Pride goes before a fall.

Ezekiel 31:14 “All this is in order that no trees by the waters may grow to towering height or set their tops among the clouds, and that no trees that drink water may reach up to them in height. For they are all given over to death, to the world below, among the children of man, with those who go down to the pit.” Brethren, God is speaking if the demise of Egypt’s might and strength over its neighboring nations. He gives Egypt an example of how God set up Assyria to be great among the nations, yet pride goes before a fall, and like any prosperous nation, it gloried in itself instead of He that supplied the prosperity. God cast Assyria down as a result, and was about to do the same to Egypt. God states ultimately that all men die, and their bodies descend into Sheol (the grave). Pride of life is of now value to men, not even kings. Why would we think any different? It is God who gives and takes away for His glory alone. Today, relish in God’s provision, and grace over your life. He could’ve struck you dead without you ever hearing the Gospel, and you could be in Hell as you read this. Thank God for His mercy and grace! Reflect today on what we don’t deserve, and his the glory back to God. God bless you.
