Christian Devotional – October 5, 2019

The higher they are, the harder they fall. Remember that saying? I heard my mother and others use that phrase to keep help keep us grounded. Read Obadiah 1:4.

“Though you build high like the eagle, Though you set your nest among the stars, From there I will bring you down,” declares the Lord .
Obadiah 1:4 NASB

Obadiah has just finished telling the people of Edom that they can’t trust in the heights that they have built into the rocks. Now he is letting them know that God is going to bring them down from the high and lofty places they have built.

God has a way of bringing people down when they need it. He is the one who is worthy of all glory and when there are others who are taking God’s glory for themselves, God will respond by bringing them back down to their place. Do we give God the glory that He is due? Do we allow Him to defend His own name when others hold themselves higher than God? He is more than capable of bringing others down where they belong.
