Dream Number 2

Like us, King Neb has a very short memory. After witnessing our friends being rescued from a fiery furnace he goes back to his old ways. How do I know that? King Neb has another dream and after all the other magicians and wise men could not interpret the dream he calls for Daniel. Listen to what he says;
"At last Daniel came in before me—he who was named Belteshazzar after the name of my god, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods." Daniel 4:8

Daniel served YAWEH, and him only. King Neb had forgotten all that had occurred. Aren't we so much like the King? We forget what wonders God has shown us. We forget the blessings that come straight from the hand of God.

So we have another dream. This time the dream is about a tree that gives shelter, food and protection for everyone and everything that comes to it. King Neb is the tree. Then a "watcher" comes and chops down the tree. In the blink of an eye the tree goes from being of great importance to being killed, just like that. Lesson, in the blink of an eye all can change. Don't we know it precious one!

A stump was left but he would be wet with the dew of heaven. He would be changed and his food would be with the beasts of the earth. His mind would be like that of the other beasts and it would last for seven years. Daniel tells the king all that would take place and then he says this; seven periods of time shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will. 26 And as it was commanded to leave the stump of the roots of the tree, your kingdom shall be confirmed for you from the time that you know that Heaven rules. Dan 4:25-26 (ESV)

What else do we need to know but that Heaven rules? Stay tuned for the outcome.

In Christ Alone,
Jill



Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
