God has never been pleased with the proud, boastful and over confident. We know that, Lucifer in his madness became Satan. He wanted to be exalted like God but he fell! The Most High God sees to it that all who will desire to be exalted out of His will & timing will ultimately fall. What a contrast Satan & his children are from Christ who humbled himself but was exalted! (Phil. 2:8-9).
Matthew 18:3-4 – And he (JESUS) said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Psalms 147:6 –“ The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.”
Proverbs 27:2 – “Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips.”
