Wayside Chapel Daily Devotional 12th October 2019

Post by Kefa »


10/12 Daniel 4:37

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.

After two experiences that showed Nebuchadnezzar that the God of Israel was the God of gods, he was warned in a dream that God was going to humble him to show him that God sets up whom He chooses as king. It was about year later when the king was surveying his kingdom and thinking how amazing he was that a voice came from heaven telling him the time had come. He lost his mind and wandered about like an animal eating grass.

To really bring the point home, God, through Daniel, told the king that the kingdom would be restored to him after seven years. Just as God foretold, the king's senses returned to him and amazingly he was restored to his position as king. Who would think it possible that a madman who wandered about like an animal would again become king over the greatest nation on earth at the time? The king now knew how lowly he really was and how great God truly is.

Look at the lengths God went to save this Gentile king! Does He do any less for anyone that has been born? If God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23), will He not go to great lengths to see that everyone knows the choice they are making? And yet, God tells us that there are few that enter the narrow way (Matthew 7:14).

Consider: Everything you have and achieve is because of God's enabling power. We should never say within ourselves, "Look what I have accomplished," lest we face a great humbling like this king experienced. Give God all the glory!

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
