The worldly are not important as they seem

"Men of low estate are but a breath, men of high estate are a delusion. In the balances they go up; they are together lighter than a breath. Imagine a pair of old world scales. The hand held sort where you put a weight on one scale to work out the weight of a new item like food perhaps, on the other scale. You would still see this in a bazaar in Asia for instance. If you put one or more, or all the worldly self-important people on one side and one microscopic thing of God on the other, God's side would go down as being weightier.

Though they are so important in their own minds they are self-deluded. God sees them as of no importance at all. "All the nations are as nothing before him, they are accounted by Him as less than nothing and emptiness." Isaiah 40.17. Isaiah says roughly the same thing. Collected together the worldly are below nothing. Their antics are folly. They threaten and act like gods, but no matter how much they twist and squirm, duck and dive, God still sees them as emptiness. "Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket and are accounted as the dust on the scales." Isaiah 60.15.

The nations are nothing before God. Even though they act like they are of immense importance, God sees them as nothing. Remember these truths when the worldly exalt themselves above you, act arrogantly toward you, or persecute you. When they act as if they are better than you, or are boastful. Knowledge is strength. You can be strong in the presence of the worldly, and even laugh inwardly.
