Jeremiah 49:16–“The terror you inspire and the pride of your heart have deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks, who occupy the heights of the hill. Though you build your nest as high as the eagle’s from there I will bring you down.” declares the Lord.
Pride and a sense of power are very deceitful feelings. They are deceitful because they deceive the people who feel them into believing they are more than they really are. They feel safe and untouchable simply because of who they are or what they’ve done. However, no one is above God and God can bring down those who have deceived themselves through pride.
Father, give me a humble heart and a spirit that seeks You first. May You be the one to be in the highest places in my life and allow me to rest securely.in You.
