True understanding

Daniel 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

Nebuchadnezzar had been lifted up in himself to think that he was something, He had believed that he had made himself. He was arrogantly praising himself when God decided to show him and all of us that any blessings or greatness that we have comes from God.

When his understanding came back the king realized that it was God. He praised and honored God. He recognized that God was the true king. He realized that he was only a servant.

Often we get hung up on ourselves and begin to think too highly of ourselves as well. We need to realize that He alone is great. He alone is God. We need to honor and recognize Him for who He is and what He does. True understanding is seeing me as small and Him as great. True understanding is seeing me as low and Him as high. True understanding is Him getting the praise and me doing the praising.
