Humility over pride.

Daniel 4:37 “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, for all his works are right and his ways are just; and those who walk in pride he is able to humble.” Brethren, King Nebuchadnezzar was warned by God in a dream and confirmed through Daniel’s interpretation that if the king didn’t humble himself, he would be stricken with mental insanity by God. Unfortunately, Nebuchadnezzar didn’t listen to God and pride filled his heart and had him forget that God gives prosperity to men and can take it away if one does not humble themselves and seek to glory in the LORD. All God’s ways are just, even strickening a King with insanity, why? Because all of fallen short of glory and righteousness and seek to edify themselves instead of God. The Ancient of Days gives and takes away. He doesn’t need anyone, but by His grace and mercy, He created man for His good will and pleasure. Today, humble yourself in all things and seek the extol God’s name, not your own.
