Scripture: Daniel 4

Nebuchadnezzar “was at ease in [his] house and prospering in [his] palace.” 

But then he had a dream. Daniel was there to tell him the meaning of his dream. Daniel was there to warn him and offer him a way out:

27 Therefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to you: break off your sins by practicing righteousness, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the oppressed, that there may perhaps be a lengthening of your prosperity.”

Nebuchadnezzar did not take heed. He was caught in the trap of his own pride, and the Lord wanted to teach him a lesson.

He learned:

34 At the end of the days I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my reason returned to me, and I blessed the Most High, and praised and honored him who lives forever, for his dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom endures from generation to generation; 35 all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, and he does according to his will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand or say to him, “What have you done?”

He learned that God is THE God…He is THE MOST HIGH…He is King of all kings.

This is our God. Humble yourself before Him. Let him reign in your life.

Journal: Write a prayer thanking God for who He is. Humble yourself before Him and submit control of your day to Him.
