Daniel 2:6 & 2:30 - Humble When Helped (Bible Journal)
"But if you tell me what I dreamed and what the dream means, I will give you many wonderful gifts and honors. Just tell me the dream and what it means (Daniel 2:6 NLT)!"
"And it is not because I am wiser than anyone else that I know the secret of your dream, but because God wants you to understand what was in your heart (Daniel 2:30 NLT)."
King Nebuchadnezzar wanted his dream analyzed and interpreted, without even telling anyone what the dream was. He ordered death to the wise men of Babylon for not being able to fulfill a request that is simply unfair. Daniel and his friends prayed to God for help, and God gave Daniel the information that was needed to facilitate the king's demands. I loved how Daniel could have put himself on a pedestal over having information that no one else could figure out, but instead gave the credit to God once the ball was in his court. Thank You Lord for helping me when I have been faced with seemingly impossible demands. Please help me to always be humble and send the credit Your way anytime success comes to me. Please let my life glorify You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
