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?
King Nebuchadnezzar to all peoples, nations and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you! It has seemed good to me to show the signs and wonders that the Most High God has done for me.
Daniel 4:1 ESV
…wonders that the Most High God has performed toward me.
Daniel 4:1 AMPC (emphasis mine)
The miracle God performed for His three servants – in response to their faith and surrender – becomes a testimony FOR Nebuchadnezzar, FOR his boasting and pontificating before the world. The king believed it all happened “FOR HIM,” the implication being that he was the object and reason God appeared in the furnace.
Nebuchadnezzar is the ultimate narcissist. Everything is about him and all events and all people are for him. All things exist for him. Though he has seen the signs and wonders of God’s presence, he views it as God has served him!
