In the Old Testament book of Obadiah, the Lord takes direct aim at Edom’s pride, which soared as high as eagles fly because they lived in a lofty place, “in the clefts of the rock,” in a place they thought was fortified against their enemies.
Esau’s descendants believed they were incapable of being conquered. Their national slogan could have been, “We are strong! We are invincible! We are Edom! However, they met their match in the Lord, who despises pride and brings low those who think too highly of themselves.
Are you living like a proud Edomite? Humble yourself before the Lord before it’s too late. First Corinthians 10:12 warns, “Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.”
