My life is in Your hands!

“For he is the living God and he endures forever.” (Daniel 6:26)
Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar and Darius each needed to learn the same lesson.
There is only one God that stands over all powers and authorities.
This is a lesson we all need to learn, and God keeps reminding us too.
We don’t use ‘god’ language as much anymore, but we still try to act that way.
As if we are the masters of our lives, as if we can choose right from wrong.
As if we hold the power of life and death, as if we are accountable to no one.
The problem is, life has a way of showing us that this is not true.
Try as we might, we cannot manage life or creation or human nature.
Rulers and nations rise up for a time, but eventually they crumble.
Our world without God is not getting better and better.
Are you trying to do life without God, or keeping God at a distance?
God does not go away so easily, and life does not work so well without God.
These stories from Daniel all have the same message: acknowledge God!
“Honor the God who holds in His hand your life and all your ways.” (Daniel 5:23)
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, thank You for reconnecting us to God. May I never forget that my life only works, when it works with You!

  1. ‘acknowledge that Heaven rules’
    ‘acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign ‘

    As the king did acknowledge the Lord, all went well
    but when he became self sufficient. living for himself without God
    He fell.
    I too need to acknowledge the Lord God in my daily living.
    Living for Jesus I need to do each and everyday.

    No God, no life.
    Know God, know Life.

    Spirit of God, dwell thou within my heart;
    Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move;
    Stoop to my weakness, mighty as thou art,
    And make me love thee as I ought to love.
