Pride goes before a fall 2 Chronicle 26

King Uzziah did what was right as his father had done His father Amaziah after a good start, had a sad end 2 chr 25. As long as Uzziah sought the help of God, he prospered

As Uzziah grew powerful, he became proud and unfaithful to God 2 chron 26:16.He walks into the priest only area of the temple and burns incence on the altar When confronted with his sin by Azariah, a fearless priest along with other priests, Uzziah rages instead of repenting. Pride prevents him from admitting the truth. Thank God for such priests who are not afraid to rebuke kings.

God struck him with leprosy which excluded him from public worship and continuing as king. Because Uzziah let power and pride go to his head, he lost everything

2.Chronicles. 25.9

A very important question arise to the king of Judah was loosing wealth.
Loosing money is not pleased to everyone.
Our flesh is not ready to make the sacrifice.
All men cannot view this matter in the light of faith and even the followers of Jesus.

Lord is able to give us more than this.
This is a very satisfactory answer to the anxious question.
Our Father holds the purse strings and what we lose for His sake, He can repay a thousand -fold.
We must obey His will.
He will provide for us.
The Lord will be no man’s debtor.
Saints know that a grain of hearts ease is more value than a ton of gold.

Those who have good conscience will gain spiritual wealth.
God’s smile is enough for true heart.
If all the talents go,we have not lost our treasure.
Jesus is sitting at the right Hand of God.
The Lord makes the meek to inherit earth. God will not withheld from us if we walk uprightly.

Know your limits!

“Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord”( II Chron 26:19).

In verse 16 we read that king Uzziah’s heart was lifted up with pride and he went into the temple to burn incense – which was the priest’s duty and not the king’s. Azariah the high priest and the other priests withstood him and said,” it appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the Lord.” This was the cause for Uzziah’s wrath with the priest – which made him a leper.

Once a person name Zechariah came to meet a servant of God to discuss some domestic problems, and during the conversation, he got very angry with the servant of God. Immediately he had an attack of paralysis. He never recovered from the paralysis; he died a most pathetic death.

Dear reader, have you given room for Pride and interfered in the duty or responsibility of any servant of God? Are you guilty of having reacted angry at any time to the counsel or reproof of the leaders? If God has not stricken you with spiritual (and maybe even physical) leprosy, realise that it is purely the mercies of God, and that you have been given an extended period of time to repent.

You may be a person of great importance, but that doesn’t give you the licence to go out of bounds. Oh Uzziah, Repent of your wrath!

Stay Blessed 😊
