Read Daniel 4
This chapter continues the accounts of Daniel. Here, he is called by the name that Nebuchadnezzar gave him – Belteshazzar.
As you review the chapter, you must realize that it is Nebuchadnezzar telling his entire kingdom of how God brought him to a point of worshipping the one true God.
- What was it about Daniel that made Nebuchadnezzar hold him in high regard?
- Recount Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. What was it about the dream that bothered him?
- Look at Daniel’s explanation of the dream. What was Daniel’s advice (v.27)?
- The dream was fulfilled. Examine Nebuchadnezzar’s response in vv24-27. Reflect on this entire chapter. What is the most significant aspect of Nebuchadnezzar’s life after the fulfillment of the dream?
Sometimes God has to deal rather harshly with us to pull us to a life of obedience. Pray that you would be obedient, and not have to be chastened like Nebuchadnezzar.
Stop sinning and do what is right. -v27
