For years, her business thrived; she had everything she desired and was extremely proud of her own achievement.
“I was very arrogant but on one fateful day, God had other plan. I and my team failed to perform a surgery for one of the country-leaders' wife. It led to her death and my medical license was revoked. I and my family had to survive with all the savings that I had,” she said.
It was then, she humbled herself and cried to the Lord for His mercy. Her medical license was reinstated and the Lord restored her.
In the Bible, we read about the proud King Nebuchadnezzar. He was convinced that the success of his kingdom was built through his own mighty power. " ...Is not this great Babylon that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty ? " (Daniel 4: 30)
As King Nebuchadnezzar exalted himself, the Lord humbled him by taking away his kingdom and his royal authority from him (Daniel 4: 31) and he became insane ...he ate grass like oxen (Daniel 4: 33)
But when he raised his eyes toward heaven to acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men, his sanity was restored and he was also restored to his throne and became even greater than before.
Pride comes with a price but humility brings a great reward. Let the Lord be the one who exalts you, lest pride will destroy you. With humility, there is a great reward.
Matthew 23 : 12 NKJV
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
