    This chapter spells out the sovereignty of God. He is in control of our words, steps and destinies. God controls and directs all. Check out Isa. 45. 7 and Rom. 9. Man is on His sovereign leash and He will direct him according to His will and pleasure.

    Pride is an enemy of God : pride lifts up yourself in any situation that you want to be the No. 1 !! To be exalted above all others !!! Destruction is awful , but when pride goes before that destruction , your in a heap of trouble !!! Also when you show yourself above others your headed for a fall. Very outspoken scripture here I would say. So best for me to keep the pride subdued and to not allow myself to be haughty !! To walk humbly before my God then He will exalt me in the right way !!
