One of the lessons that we can learn from Hamman is pride. He thinks he is untouchable, that no problems or harm can come to him. Instead he is setting himself up for a great fall. We should always be careful getting ahead of ourselves, or thinking that it is because of our strength and might success come. Hamman thought it was all about him. His mistake was not in realizing it was all about God.
New Testament Lesson
Thought each act in Revelation, we see one dominant fact. God is in control. God is at work. He is worthy of our praise. He is worthy of our worship. He is worthy of our trust.
Jesus reminds us that it all starts with belief. It all starts with faith. Blessed are those that believe. Blessed are those that trust. Blessed are those that have faith. Today, may we be among the blessed that have faith; that trust in God.
