EVEN THE MIGHTY FALL
MAIN TEXT: Jeremiah 51:25
The LORD says, “Beware! I am opposed to you, Babylon! You are like a destructive mountain that destroys all the earth. I will unleash my power against you; I will roll you off the cliffs and make you like a burned – out mountain.
1 Corinthians 10:12 – “Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth the heed take head lest he fall.
The greatest saint can stand as long as he can depend on Christ, and continue in obedience to the word of God. This is because the experience of salvation is not only obtained but also maintained by absolute submission to the Lordship of Christ. By divine design, man is the prime of God’s creatures, being the only one made in His image. This conferred God’s glory, abilities, and capabilities on him, and he was placed at the earthly apex of the organization of the universe.
Above all, man had the privilege of fellowship with God as a Father and friend. This pleasant atmosphere was, however, disrupted when man did the unthinkable by rebelling against God, leading to the loss of the divine glory and dominion he had enjoyed. Reflecting on the above illustration, take time to re-examine your life. Do you still enjoy His divine adornment? Also, learn more from the lives of people like Samson, Saul (the king of Israel), Haman, Goliath etc. these were mighty men who lost their strength because they despised and disobeyed the word of God.
Once again, remember, the experience of salvation is not only obtained but also maintained by absolute submission to the Lordship of Christ.
BY STRENGTH SHALL NO MAN PREVAIL
PRAYER: O God, deliver me from a shameful fall and renew me like the eagle. Let me daily walk with fresh wisdom and power through the help of the Holy Spirit in Jesus name, Amen.
