I, Nebuchadnezzar, was at home in my palace, contented and prosperous.
I am in week 4 of our Beth Moore study: Daniel, Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy. I love it! I have been rather distracted from all our house stuff, so haven't really taken the time to fully emotionally engage in some of the days homework, but today I got to since the kids were gone to my mother in law's! In our Esther study last year, and now again in this Daniel study, I am relating more to the antagonist of the story than the hero :) The above verse really struck me since I have been so consumed with house stuff. I have been praying that the Lord would protect Steve and I from finding our contentment and security from this new house and that we would always find our peace in Him alone. As Beth Moore said on last week's video, it is better to learn this lesson "from the page" than going through anything remotely like what King Nebuchadnezzer went through to bring him to his knees! But how awesome it is to see that the Most High God granted King Neb the stump of the tree and its roots to stay in the ground so that he could finally give glory and praise to the ruler of Heaven and earth!
