About Rule and Reign Like Daniel Series
Daniel believed in God as Ruler, so he brought Heaven’s Rule into his earthly government and heathen captors. Do you rule and reign like Daniel did?
I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever. For His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom endures from generation to generation.
Daniel 4:34 NASB
First the king grasps that God alone lives.
Second, the king sees that His rule and dominion is permanent, everlasting – reigning over every kingdom for all time, forever. God alone reigns.
Our conception of God is that He rules in this situation where I can see what I think He should do…but I question His power and reign in the arena where I don’t approve of what He allows. Where I fret, resist and object to His seeming non-involvement, my view of Him is NOT sovereignty. He has ceased to ‘rule’ when I don’t approve of His ‘way of ruling.’
Nebuchadnezzar has seen a profound vision of God in all reality. In that Light, his unreality has vanished.
