THE STORY OF JESUS: Daniel 4-6
“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!
