James 1:17

Daniel 2:1-23

“There is not a man upon the earth that can tell you what that dream means,” said the Chaldeans.

Then in strolled Daniel with the interpretation.

Can you imagine the pride that would have tried to rule in his heart? He was the only man in the entire kingdom that could interpret the king’s dream. The only one.

But instead of glorying in himself he exalted God. He thanked God for imparting wisdom and might upon him. He blessed him. Praised him. Worshipped him.

In complete humbleness.

Daniel realized that even though he would receive glory on earth that his God in heaven was the author of this success.

Every good and perfect gift comes from God alone.

Remind yourself of that when you start getting too big for your britches.
