Now in that very moment this pronouncement about Nebuchadnezzar came true. He was driven from human society, he ate grass like oxen, and his body became damp with the dew of the sky, until his hair became long like an eagle’s feathers, and his nails like a bird’s claws.
Daniel 4:33 NET
At various times, the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar, had insight into who God actually was. However, this didn’t always carry over for the long term.
In Daniel 4, he was warned to make sure he knew who was “truly” in charge. But a year later, he was strolling in his place and remarked at the great things that “he” had built.
Immediately, what he was warned about came true and he lived like an animal for seven years.
The lesson is, who do you give glory for your life? Is it all your doing? Or do you recognize God’s hand in it?
If you recognize God’s hand, do you give Him the glory He deserves?
We don’t recognize God’s hand on our lives when we don’t give Him the place He deserves. When we are too busy to give the Lord our time, we are in serious trouble.
How do you not give Him time? When you don’t read His Word, pray and go to church.
Another important aspect to giving God glory is to make it apart of the words you speak on a daily basis. As you do this, not so much out of habit, but out of acknowledgement, it brings glory to God.
Lord, let everything I do praise and glorify You. You are everything.
