Today’s Tasting: Daniel 4-6
Nebuchaddnezzar, King of Babylon came to know the power of Daniel’s God and became a Believer in the One True God. Yet, he lacks in recognizing God’s exclusive power and continues to pay homage to his own accomplishments as a power of his own and no result of God’s work through him.
Nebuchaddnezzar experienced some temporary insanity and God restored him.
“I praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble” (Daniel 4:36-37 NIV).
Daniel interpreted King Nebuchaddnezzar’s dream and it’s meaning. Years later and known as Belteshazzar to the Babylonians, he experiences God writing on the wall. By the end of Neb’s experience with Daniel, he decreed,
“Daniel’s God shall be worshiped and feared in all parts of my kingdom. He is the living God, world without end. His kingdom never falls. His rule continues eternally. He is a savior and rescuer. He performs astonishing miracles in heaven and earth. He saved David from the power of the lions” (Daniel 6:25-27 MSG).
Today’s Nourishment: In America, we may not experience such difficulties from authorities for not worshiping them. However, believers around the world live with threats from similar powers for their families and fellow believers because of the way they live and openly living their faith.
Daniel proved his God by the way he lived and Nebuchaddnezzar witnessed the power of Daniel’s God. Can you say that others witness the power of your God by the way you live, openly living your faith, without shame of speaking of your God?
