The God of the Bible, the God of heaven and earth, the God who created everything is by far the only God worthy of worship, worthy of praise, worthy of glory, worthy of honor, worthy of following all the days of my life. I was reading Daniel 2 this morning, and the Holy Spirit highlighted verses 26-28 which say, “The king said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, “Are you able to make known to me the dream which I have seen and its interpretation?” Daniel answered before the king and said, “As for the mystery about which the king has inquired, neither wise men, conjurers, magicians nor diviners are able to declare it to the king. However, there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will take place in the latter days. This was your dream and the visions in your mind while on your bed.” Now this may not mean much to you just as a reading, but the Holy Spirit took me into the story and revealed God to me again.
Yahweh, gave a prophetic dream to a Babylonian king in a language the king could not interpret, his magicians nor his conjurers could not interpret, but a Jewish man in his court could interpret. A Babylonian king needed this Jewish man named Daniel to decode the prophetic dream the God of heaven gave to him. Amazing. Simply amazing. God is so creative, so fearless, so confident in who he has placed where for what purpose. Daniel was an exile brought to Babylon, he went through three years of being trained in the language and literature of the Chaldeans and now is serving a Babylonian king. Talk about feeling like a fish out of water. Then Daniel’s God, Yahweh, gives the king of Babylon a prophetic dream about future events.
My friends, you may not understand what is happening in your natural circumstances, you may not know why you are where you are, but I am telling you, there is a God in heaven who knows exactly what He is doing, why He called you to where you are and He knows exactly what He is going to do with you. Fear not, fret not, complain not, for Yahweh is God and He still gives prophetic dreams to foreign kings of which only His people can interpret. Who knows if you were put in that place for such a time as this?
