Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John14:6
Uncle Nebuchadnezzar is an interesting character for September! Daniel 4!
Until he submitted and acknowledged Jesus, he could not leave his prison. Prison is a restriction, limitation and stagnation. Prison stores the life and well-being of a person or his property. Prison is stolen peace.
No one loves the prison but sometimes life turns us in for a purpose! every prison bows to the authority of access to freedom. John 8:32,36! God’s ways to saving and reaching us is infinite. Isaiah 55:8-11.
Nobody could explain the predicament of Uncle Nebuchadnezzar except Daniel as revealed, His entire cabinet and family wondered without any capacity to help, it was tough to believe a king had turned a Human- Animal. Don’t let God humble you! (There are many situations in life that men can’t explain neither can they help, That is a prison). Everyone watched #Nebuchadezzar crawl out of sight. Like i always say “Every greatness has a moment of silence”. in that silence, heaven sounds loudest!
(Sometimes there are matters that makes us seem less than human, because we fell pray to evil suggestions or we were careless and ignorant and insensitive.) Nothing punishes like arrogant ignorance, Don’t let pride tell you what will happen to you when you buy it! Humility is in the heart!
This occurrence left the entire cabinet and people confused that no one could occupy his throne for seven years of external imprisonment ( Whatever God gives, He keep| Your place no one can take). He was locked up in the forest or wilderness to unravel his execution error. (Many times, the Prison is a painful solitude where God meets us).
Similarly, one sunny afternoon, Uncle Nebuchadnezzar walked normal back into town straight to the palace, took his bath, dressed up and walked majestically to His throne, no one asked questions or explanations neither did anyone refute his orders. All happened like a mirage with so much lessons. Psalms 126:1-3!
One vital lesson is of essence in this story; We own nothing, we are simply privileged stewards and our heart status controls our destiny! Any position can be vacant and anybody can be vacated except God!
Uncle Nebuchadnezzar’s concern was a personal transaction with God. When he settled with God, everyone saw his settlement. (Don’t judge any man, you never know when they settle with God. God is the only righteous judge. Jesus is still man’s High Priest and Bishop of our soul and mediator, its time to replace condemnation with reconciliation and correction)
Jesus is the true way out of every prison in life. Jesus is the word instruction out of bondage. Jesus is the light that shines in the darkness of prison. There is nothing the enemy has stolen that Jesus doesn’t know where it is hidden and have absolute access to. Are you in prison? Let Jesus in and you will come out! John3:18!
Stay humble and ever repentant, God rules in the affairs of men. The more we reverence God, the better secure is our place in life and destiny. God loves you and is ever willing to safe and deliver if we will call on Him. Rev 3:20, Romans 10:13, John 14:13. John 3:16!
This SEPTEMBER, GOD will RESTORE YOU in a FASHION IN-EXPLAINABLE yet UNDENIABLE. The same many WONDERED why it hasn’t happened is the same way they will WONDER HOW IT HAPPENED. THOSE WHO PITIED YOU will ENVY YOU! ABOVE ALL, ALL THAT BELONGS TO YOU NO MAN WILL TAKE. JESUS THE WAY MAKER WILL MAKE THE WAY FOR YOU AND ME in JESUS NAME.
