Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters.
There is a danger in greatness. Being high and lifted up, we become prideful, and entitled. We should have it, because we deserve it.
Did not we cause this to happen, and did not we bring this to pass? It is very easy to get caught up in me, I, or we did this and that.
It was not by his own power that the Assyrian became great, but by the great waters that ran by his root. We must be careful to give honor and glory to the one who sends the rain.
We are nothing without the rain. The “Rains of Refreshing” come only from God, and without them, without Him, our root simply withers and we die, no matter how great we think we have become, or how much we think we deserve. It is a gift from God that we don’t go down to the pit, an amazing gift… God’s grace.
Father, thank you for all you do for us and our loved ones. We give you honor and glory, and we sing your praise. Thank God for the rain, and for the blood of The Lamb!
