When God Lets Go

You said to yourself, “I’ll climb to heaven. I’ll set my throne over the stars of God. I’ll run the assembly of angels that meets on sacred Mount Zaphon. I’ll climb to the top of the clouds. I’ll take over as King of the Universe!”

(Isaiah 14:13-14 MSG)

Greatness. Everyone seeks it and there are those who will even go to great lengths to achieve it. Satan sure did. Lucifer, as he was then known, wasn’t happy with his position as the highest of angels. He didn’t like being “second best.” He wanted to be God. So he rebelled and led many other angels to join in his rebellion, which eventually led to his and their downfall. God let go of His angel because he had allowed himself to become filled with pride.

And ever since, there have always been people who have been so eager to become great that they have caused nothing but trouble. So in their rebellion, they lose whatever position God had given them in the first place. God simply lets them go because there’s no place for pride in His kingdom.

Most of the trouble in the world is caused by people wanting to be important. -T.S.Eliot
