Daniel 4:30 NKJV - "The king spoke, saying, 'Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?'"
My Will - My Power - My Glory: Everything that our God has the perfect right to say about all He does. He does as He will. He does all through His power. He does all for His glory. Praise His Name!
But what do we see in our Daily Verse? This is Nebuchadnezzar's boast of his exploits. As if he was God! That's exactly what Satan said and sought to do as seen in Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28. And that's exactly what Satan tempts every person to think they can do for themselves. How many times have we heard people brag about their plans and their abilities to carry out their plans and their pride in what they believe they, alone, have done?!
Christian, pay attention to your own motivation for all you do. Is God's will being done? Is God's strength being relied upon to do what needs to be done? Is God getting all the glory in the end?
My prayer for myself and for those who serve the Lord is that all that God does through us will cause others to be more impressed with Him and give Him all the glory.
