Uzziah’s fall demonstrates again that God takes our worship of Him seriously and that pride can lead to all manner of other sins. We must worship the Lord in a manner agreeable to Scripture and seek to grow in humility before the Lord. Uzziah became prideful when he forgot that God gave him his successes (2 Chron. 26:5, 16), and disaster for him ensued. The same can happen to us if we become prideful.
We are always to be humble servants of the Lord, coming before Him in prayer boldly (Heb. 10:19–22) not on account of what we have done but knowing that such access has been to granted to us in Christ alone. He looks with favor only upon those who are contrite and humble (Isa. 66:2), and if we are not humble before Him, we cannot rightly expect Him to hear or answer our prayers. Let us all cultivate humility in His presence.
