Nebuchadnezzar was certain that he was top dog, the alpha! That was until he encountered the true Alpha who was also known as Omega, the beginning and the end. The Most High loved this pride-filled man enough to teach him an extreme lesson. By the end of the experience, Nebuchadnezzar was giving PRAISE to someone other than himself! #miracle #transformation
When the Most High is acknowledged we become part of an eternal plan. His everlasting dominion endures throughout generations! If anyone tries to stop God’s hand, asking “what have you done?”…they are not acknowledged, so puny are their voices (should they dare to lift them).
Am I acknowledging those with puny voices? (my own insecurities)
Or, do I trust God’s work as right and his ways as just? Most importantly, have I humbled myself before the Most High? – Teresa #thanks #giving
Daniel 4:34-36 (ESV)
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?”
36 At the same time my reason returned to me, and for the glory of my kingdom, my majesty and splendor returned to me. My counselors and my lords sought me, and I was established in my kingdom, and still more greatness was added to me. 37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, for all his works are right and his ways are just; and those who walk in pride he is able to humble.
