Isaiah 47:10 (New Living Translation - NLT)
10 “You felt secure in your wickedness. ‘No one sees me,’ you said. But your ‘wisdom’ and ‘knowledge’ have led you astray, and you said, ‘I am the only one, and there is no other.’
Pride is an ugly and scary elusive and unseen creature. It blinds us to our weakness. Never allows us to hear from others, learn from others, and change any opinion we might hold. Our experience feeds our pride, feeds our "wisdom" and elevates "us" to new heights of recognition. In the end, God humbles us, for it is always and only about Him. Never us.
