Came across this message this morning, and found it worthy to share.
Son of man, mourn for Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and give him this message: you think of yourself as a strong young lion among the nations, but you are really just a sea monster, heaving around in your own rivers, stirring up mud with your feet.
It is always dangerous when we begin to think ourselves higher than we ought. If we think we can go it alone, we are headed for trouble. None of us are strong enough to endure the pull of our sinful nature without God’s help. If we think we can stand alone, we will reject the help and support offered by God and others. We need to be reminded that we need God’s power continually.
