The Heart of the King is in the Hand of God!

Listen to this blog.

At that time my mind was healed, and once again I became the ruler of my glorious kingdom. My advisors and officials returned to me, and I had greater power than ever before.

That’s why I say:
“Praise and honor the King
who rules from heaven!
Everything he does
is honest and fair,
and he can shatter the power
of those who are proud.”

Daniel 4:36-37

Those are the words of Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon after he had spent seven years living as an animal. God sent the king from the pinnacle of power to live outdoors like a man who had completely lost his mind.

Remember that the cosmic, spiritual war that is raging in the universe and beyond is not a serious challenge to the power of God. God allows it to continue because of the work that it does for His children. Almighty God could stop all opposition to His power in the twinkling of an eye. In fact, that is just what He will do, but only at the right time to serve His eternal purposes.

Nebuchadnezzar and his fall from power is a stunning reminder of how powerful God is and how even our minds can function clearly because He allows them to do so.

If the King, the President, or other great and mighty leaders arise this morning with any common sense at all it is because God has graciously allowed them to continue to be in their right minds. At God's command every great leader would become like Nebuchadnezzar and completely lose all sense of reality!

So for those who follow Jesus we must not fear the King or what the King threatens to do. The sanity of the King is clearly held in God's hand. We must fear God and Him only.

When you look around and see the storms beginning to rage never forget that complete calm will follow one Word from Jesus. He will speak that Word at just the right time. Amen!
