Nebuchadnezzar and Job were two men greatly abased.

First we look at Nebuchadnezzar.

Daniel 4:37  "Now I Nebuchadnezzar-(king of Babylon – a very great  ancient city)-praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all whose works are truth and his ways judgement; and those that walk in pride He is able to abase-(original Hebrew is 'depress, sink')." 
Psalms 107:12,13 "Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble and he saved them out of their distresses." 
God is in absolute total control of everything going on. Much He allows. In things important to His designed purpose, He intervenes to keep His plan on track. 
   In all else, it's because of Him we even breath -Acts 17:28 "For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring." Colossians 1:17 "And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." Psalms 66:9 "Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved."
    Hebrews 1:3 "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."

The reason why we are here eludes most people. In Nebuchadnezzar's case, God wanted a particular point of character inculcated. God always accomplishes His purpose -Romans 9:19 ".....For who hath resisted his will.....?"
    The agony was Nebuchadnezzar's. Likewise the agony of living is ours when alone without God. With God, we understand why the agony
     Nebuchadnezzar finally was abased. And in that abasement he discovered how great the true God is. He now, in retrospect (looking back on things), saw how prideful he had been. Read Nebuchadnezzar's story in Daniel 4th chapter of how this great King of Babylon became an actual wild beast for seven years.-...continue?
