Nebuchadnezzar was alarmed by a night vision of a great tree that was reduced to a stump, and he called Daniel to interpret the dream when his diviners could not. Daniel was appalled by the meaning of the vision but faithfully related it to the king, urging him to avert the disaster by turning from his iniquities and showing mercy to the poor. The king was too proud to heed this wise counsel, and the Lord fulfilled the vision by reducing him to an animal-like state for seven years. At the end of this time, the Lord restored Nebuchadnezzar’s reason and reestablished his kingdom, and the now-humbled king gave honor to the Most High God “who does according to His will in the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth.”
READING of DANIEL 4
Lord, I know that You, the Most High, are ruler over the realm of mankind, and that You bestow it on whom You wish. Deliver me from the folly of pride when things appear to go my way, and let me walk in wisdom, fearing Your holy name.
