As we read through the word of God, it easy to see how we will be blessed as we humbly follow the LORD’s ways and troubled if we don’t. We must make the decision to continually look to God’s word or we will be victims of doing what seems best. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” 2 Chronicles 26:5 says, “As long as King Uzziah sought the LORD, God made him prosper,” but verse 16 says, “when he was strong his heart was lifted up, to his destruction, for he transgressed against the LORD his God by entering the temple of the LORD to burn incense on the altar of incense.” Uzziah was blinded by his success; he let his heart get lifted up. If we have any kind of real success, we must remember to remain in the same humility that got us there. Lord, hep us to walk in true humility.
