Obadiah 1:4
"Though you soar aloft like an eagle, though your nest is set among the stars, from there I will bring you down, declares the Lord." ESV 
It is a tragic deception to think that material blessings are evidence of being favored and blessed by God. God's favor and disfavor are not measured by material things, success, failure, and tragedy. Those who are financially and socially acceptable tend to get focused on the blessings and become proud of their achievements. The Word states that pride come before a fall. No matter how blessed we are pride will cause us to fall. The more our Lord blesses us, the more we much walk in humility. If we don't, God will bring us down and humble us.
Lord, forgive us for being proud of and taking credit for the many things we have accomplished. Help us to always remember Who provided the blessing. We pray humbly that we would be aware of where we stand in comparison to You. In Your gracious name we pray, Amen.
