â€¢ Could God humble one of His own children? â€¢ Could God â€” no doubt in love â€” bring us down to the point of a beast on account of our pride?
Brothers and sisters, He not only could, but He has throughout redemptive history!
â€¢ He brought low Israel as they refused to trust God when they came to the Promised Land. â€¢ He brought low David and made him flee from Jerusalem. â€¢ He gave Paul a thorn in the flesh. â€¢ He humbled Laodicea â€” one of the churches in the book of Revelation â€” because of their pride. â€¢ He humbled Jacob. â€¢ He humbled Korah. â€¢ And in our passage God is humbling His people.
