|Do you have a big head?|
And watch out.
That means we must not get the big head, because of what God did for us. Don't fall for that feeling that we're on top of the world. Don't let us get overly confident, because we know how blessed we are for making it through the valley. Don't get so full of ourselves, because of all of our accomplishments.
Remember what happened to Samson (Judges 13). He gave away what God blessed him with as his source of strength and power. He got the big head and God left him. Thus, he wasn't able to be effective in the land.
Don't you think for one minute that people don't know from whence you draw your strength and power. It's the gift God gave you to inspire and uplift people. People see your gift and some of them don't like it. They wish they had it, so they will use tricks and schemes to render you powerless and weak. You must remember what happened to you "yesterday." All that pain, heartache, humiliation, embarrassment, pride, and God knows what else. Don't dwell on it, but don't forget it.
Be careful and stay strong in the Lord. For, they think you'll slip again and if you're not careful they'll be right. Seek God always and stay with Him this time. Then look in the mirror and determine what you see. If you see a new creation, that's good. If you see more of the old you, that's not good. In fact it's bad. Pray and ask God for help if you see the latter. If you see the former, pray for continued strength, power, and more humility.
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you" (James 4:10).
And that humility will keep your head small. Then your strength and power will be evident. Then people will be helped by you.
