Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
So often as we think that things are out of control. We wonder where God is and what He is doing. It seems that He is letting the world spin out of control. That is not the lesson taught here in Daniel. Actually God was in control. A king began to think that he was something. He thought that he was the one that built his kingdom. He took pride in himself and his accomplishments.
God reminds him in this story that God is in control. God gives us what we have. It is not me or you that makes something of ourselves. No matter what you accomplish you need to remember that it is God that gives you life. It is God that allows you to accomplish things. God is to get all the honor and glory.
Men may rule and reign but there is always One over all of them. I will trust Him to take care of me and know that He is able.
