Do You Like The Taste Of Dirt?

OCTOBER 18, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Daniel 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    From time to time I get to see old classmates. As time passes some of us are beginning to look some older. (If you are one of my classmates reading this, I am not talking about you, just everyone else.) After 40 plus years away from one another, it is interesting sometimes to see and hear what has become of some of them. However, usually you will find one thing true. Those who were so full of themselves and thought they were the answer to the world’s problems, are not so sure now.

    Nebuchadnezzar came to this same realization the hard way. God let this king create one of the greatest empires of his time. Then, in a dream interpreted by Daniel, God showed him how he would be brought low. He was made to crawl around on the ground like an animal and eat dirt and grass. His uncut nails began to look more like claws. He was brought not only to a place of no kingly power, but also of humiliation. After a pre-determined time, God, who had preserved his kingdom during this time, allowed Him to regain his composure and rule again. In the verse today, we find that King Nebuchadnezzar realized who was really in control. It was the King of heaven all along. Proverbs 16:18 says, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” King Nebuchadnezzar found out how true it was back then. Does this Bible truth still ring true today? Oh friend, does it ever!

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Therefore, the moral to this devotion would be to walk upright and have some dignity. All the while understanding that your place in life is not solely by your might and doing, but by God’s grace and mercy. Be proud of who God is and what He has allowed you to become. Because, the other alternative seems to be asking yourself the question, “do you like the taste of the dirt of this world.”
