P G B D

II CHRONICLES 26

King Uzziah!
Excellent beginning but embarrassing end!

A king at sixteen(VERSE 1),
great warrior(VERSES 6,7 & 8),
sincere seeker and a devout follower (VERSE 5),
skilled administrator (VERSE 11),
enthusiastic lover of the soil and agriculture (VERSE 10),
victorious and famous (VERSE 8) and
a technophile (VERSE 15)!

But he was forced to dwell in an isolated house till his
death;
Reason?
Pride, the root cause of all sin! (VERSE 16).
Not willing to stay within the boundary, not ready to listen
to counsel, not hesitating to show the fury against children
of GOD and silently sidelined by Divine act (VERSES 16-20)!

Dear friend,
Not just Uzziah, but many promising servants fell in this subtle
pit and got sidelined; Servants who had humble beginnings in
their faith life, sometimes somehow start assuming themselves
as indispensable in the Kingdom and manipulate anything and
everything to prove that.
After every victory, take time to check and humble yourself in
HIS presence and give HIM glory!
Never allow the enemy to plant a weed of pride in your heart!
GOD is not going to be impressed by your list of achievements
or statistics about your success but only by your humility!

Not just for Uzziah, but for all human beings P G B D!
Yes, Pride Goes Before Destruction!


…….GOD RESISTS THE PROUD,
BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE. ( I PETER 5 : 5 )

  1. kizito Ephraim says :

    All thanks and praises to the Lord. Am blessed. We should go back to the drawing table to do checks and balances with our transactions. Where are we proceeding to? Then seek God’s intervention.
