Boasting Does Not Make It So

Read the Bible in a year by reading Isaiah 16-18 today.
Boasting that one is the best or something like that does not make it so. As God told Moab,
We have heard of the pride of Moab—
He is very proud—
Of his haughtiness and his pride and his wrath;
But his lies shall not be so.
(Isaiah 16:6)
Moab boasted of what it would do, but God promised that they would not do it. Let a nation or let a man be mighty and boast of what he wants to do, but if God does not allow it, it shall not happen. What shall we conclude then? Live in God’s will, not contrary to it.
