2 Chronicles 26:5 KJV
And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord , God made him to prosper.
Uzziah was a good king in his days. In fact after David, only very few kings could rule that long. Uzziah did 52years, quite impressive, and he for the first time we see a man who “loved the soil.”(v10)
His reign saw some innovation in technology; bows that could shoot arrows, trebuchets and many more (see v15), and his fame spread abroad.

In his strength, his heart became lifted up and forgot about who he was, and quickly came his demise. We saw a similar situation in the piece, “THE REAL DANGER OF MERRY MOMENTS – Tue, Sep 09, 2014 – http://wp.me/p479BW-1y
Your success is a direct function of your wait on the LORD. The two are just inseparable and that is why we need to REMAIN in Him. You cannot disappoint yourself by falling off along the way. Please REMAIN!
Have a blessed day.
