Re:Verse passage – Daniel 2:31-49 (day four)
Nebuchadnezzar was amazed at Daniel’s God. He had no honest expectation that anyone would be able to fulfill his command. Besides, he liked the fact that the golden head of the statue represented him. In his mind, Nebuchadnezzar was the greatest. He probably missed Daniel’s statement that the God of heaven had given the kingdom to him.
Admiration does not always lead to relationship though. Nebuchadnezzar gives no sign of yielding control of his life and kingdom to God. No relationship of faith is stirred in this pagan king’s heart. Maybe you have known someone like that…they see the works of God and may even be amazed at God’s divine plan, but they are not yet ready to yield their lives to Him in faith. As much as we would like to climb inside their head and heart and shake them to recognition and faith…we cannot. It is our responsibility to share the truth…share the gospel…it is the responsibility of the Holy Spirit to change the heart!
