Daniel 4:37


Daniel 4:37 And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.


Of all people to say these words, O Lord, Nebuchadnezzar could speak them from experience (Daniel 4). He knew what it was to be humbled. Humble me when I’m proud, when I think of myself more highly than I ought, when my sinful pride rears its ugly head in my words and actions. As you humble me, may it not lead to further pride as I try to deny my sin. Rather may it lead me to turn to Christ’s cross. There He displayed the greatest act of humility: God himself dying for sinful man. Why? To forgive me for my sinful pride and give me eternal life! May His humility inspire me to serve you and others with great humility. Amen.
