Daniel 4th chapter, a selfie of Nebuchadnezzar?
It is doubtful that any book on ‘world history’ would have
this piece of information about that great king!
It may be so easy to take this kind of selfie with so many
dark spots but it needs real courage to like, comment and
share this ‘selfie’ with others; not just with a small group
of friends and followers but with the public! (DANIEL 4: 1).
But his motive is very clear; through this selfie he illustrated
the most important truth ‘The LORD Reigns!’.
We may not be having a great kingdom like Nebuchadnezzar’s
kingdom, but in our little kingdoms most of the times we fail to
acknowledge this fundamental truth!
Even though we claim that we surrender all, we are having so
many peculiar compartments in our kingdom which are not
governed by HIS WORD but by our own wish and will.
Remember, when GOD decided to teach Nebuchadnezzar this
truth, HE permitted the king to go down from the normal human
behaviour and attitude to animal kind of life!
Is not true that we also some times, may be most of the times,
express this kind of animal instincts in our life?
Our abnormal obsession with lust, power or money, our secret
desire to be worshipped, our angry outbursts and unashamed
rationalizations all may not be because of our DNAs or impact
of the generational curse!
Who knows that all the above may be the side effects of our
failure to acknowledge HIS authority in some of our secret
Take selfie, not with some costly gadgets, but with the help of
the HOLY SPIRIT in the light of the WORD in the chamber of
This selfie is not to impress others by covering the ugly dots
but to confess the dark side to your CREATOR and to forsake
them; To hand over the governance of all the compartments
of your kingdom to the EVERLASTING KING!
Believe, HE is so gentle and loving that he won’t share what
you confessed with others; In fact HE won’t even remember
them but will give you grace!
If you have secret struggles in your behaviour and attitude,
better take selfie; HE is waiting to give you HIS image and
HOW GREAT ARE HIS SIGNS,
HOW POWERFUL HIS WONDERS!
HIS KINGDOM WILL LAST FOREVER,
HIS RULE THROUGH ALL GENERATIONS.
( DANIEL 4 : 3 )
