To the nations and peoples of every language, who live in all the earth:
May you prosper greatly!
It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me.
How great are his signs,
how mighty his wonders!
His kingdom is an eternal kingdom;
his dominion endures from generation to generation.”
—Daniel 4:1-3 NIV
How easily we forget… Look at all the signs and miracles witnessed by King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel revealed the mystery of his dream. He watched a Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego survive the burning furnace.
Despite this, Nebuchadnezzar had not humbled himself before the Lord.
It took having his reign toppled and living as a wild animal for years as Daniel predicted from his dream.
"At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High. I Honored and glorified Him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion: his kingdom endures from generation to generation."
Like you, I have seen my share of miracles and wonders in this life. I think of the multiple times God has blessed me. I think of the times He has spared me from my stupid mistakes and all of the “bullets I have dodged.” Just think of the miracle of our birth! …the multiple events and pairings of just the right genetic material at just the right time to create the unique you. That’s like winning the lottery multiple times in succession!
Daily Battle Order:
Lest we forget or the world drowns out our awareness of our miracles and wonders, let’s get on our knees and humble ourselves before our loving and awesome God. Let’s pray to keep Him utmost in our hearts, mind, and soul always. God is in control—hallelujah!
