Some people have a very inflated view of themselves. In fact, these
people are deceived by their pride into thinking others see them in
the same way they see themselves. Their deceptive pride brings them
to places that make them feel they are above the rules and laws of both
God and man. God will allow them to continue in their delusion for a time, but will bring them to reality at some point. We really need to examine ourselves, be real about who we are, and keep ourselves from falling into deceptive pride. Yes, it can happen to any of us. We can fall from any level.

Heavenly Father, we ask that you help us to keep an honest and true view of ourselves, to see ourselves as you see us, so that we will bring glory to you, in Jesus' name.

Read Obadiah 1:3,4

"The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks and make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, 'Who can bring me down to the ground?' Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down, declares the Lord." (NIV)

"The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD." (KJV)
