My Good Friend Nebbie
There is a story in the Book of Daniel Chapter 4 about a king named Nebuchadnezzar; my friend Nebbie. Nebbie claimed to know about God, but he did not know God.
Nebbie had a bad, bad dream. No one was able to interpret this dream except for a man named Daniel. Daniel knew God. The dream was a warning; if Nebbie refused to change his ways, a long list of terrible things would happen. Nebbie didn’t and exactly one year later, as he was proclaiming his greatness, God stepped in. God’s line of attack, to allow him to go a bit crazy (well, he went really crazy!).
Verse 34 says; But at the end of that time, I raised my eyes toward heaven and my reason returned to me and I blessed the Most High. It wasn’t until Nebbie raised his eyes toward heaven that his reason returned to him. I wasn’t until he recognized his need for God.
Nebbie’s final statement; Now I praise and exalt and honor the King of heaven …His ways are just, and He is able to humble those who walk in pride.
- Fact: God will humble those who are proud.
- Fact: They will always have a warning.
- Fact: I don’t need to worry about it!
