Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that pass through your mind as you were lying in bed are these: Daniel 2:27-28
The king had a dream that disturbed him greatly and he wanted to know what it meant. He also refused to tell any what the dream was. When his people could not tell him what the dream meant, he set out to kill of his workers. Daniel stepped in and said that there is a God who can reveal what King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was about. He then proceeds to tell the king about his dream.
There are a lot of dream “experts” in the world today who claim that they can tell a person what their dreams mean. Alongside of them, are also astrologists, palm-readers, fortune tellers, who claim that they can reveal what a person’s future will hold. In some colleges there are even courses that people can take to be trained for doing these types of works. All these people claim that they can help a person know what is future is.
People all over the world want to know what there is in their future and so they go to these types of people for guidance.
In the church there are also some people who claim to be able to know the future or can see the future of individuals.
The reality is that without God, no person really knows the future. Only God can reveal the future and do the impossible.
As a believer, God may do some great things through you for others. These things could be healings, other miracles, and telling of some future event. When God does this, it is easy to take credit and say that you did it, however, it is God who did it.
When God does some work through you, pull yourself out of the picture and give Him the credit. He is the one who did the work through you, not yourself. In yourself, you really have no power or abilities, only God does.
Are you taking credit for God’s work?
Or, like Daniel, are you giving God all the credit?
I pray today that God will do many things through you; that you will know that God is the one doing all the work through you; that you will be a witness of God’s great power; and that the world will see God through you.
