Daniel 4:37 (NLT) “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and glorify and honor the King of heaven. All his acts are just and true, and he is able to humble the proud.”
|When we’re caught up in our strongholds (meaning addictions), it’s common for us to deceive ourselves with grandiose thinking. We may believe that we’re above it all, a god unto ourselves, accountable to no one. However, let’s be clear today we all need accountability in our lives.
In his day, Nebuchadnezzar, king of ancient Babylon, was the most powerful ruler on earth. He believed himself to be a god and demanded worship as such. God said to him, “The Most High has declared . . . [that] you will be driven from human society, and you will live in the fields with the wild animals, until you learn that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world and gives them to anyone he chooses” (Daniel 4:24-25).
All this happened just as predicted. At the end of the king’s time in exile, he said, “I looked up to heaven. My sanity returned, and I praised and worshiped the Most High and honored the one who lives forever, When my sanity returned to me, so did my honor and glory and kingdom with even greater honor than before. Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and glorify and honor the King of heaven. All his acts are just and true, and he is able to humble the proud” (Daniel 4:34, 36-37). Don’t get twisted the Lord is all encompassing.
Point to ponder- We must remember that we are not God. We’re accountable to a higher authority who can remedy our “madness” and restore our lives to be even better than before our season of insanity. Have a fantastic Tuesday!
