Lifting yourself up to fall

Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

God had done special things for this king of Tyrus that I believe represents Satan. This person gets lifted up in his own beauty. He ruins the wisdom that he has because of brightness. God will judge him and cast him down.

As I read this I question how often we seek to lift ourselves up. Promotion really comes from God but we are into self promotion. I have been there many times.

Our humility is what the Lord seeks. He will lift us up if and when He is ready. So don’t lift yourself up to just fall and be humiliated.
