Where can I find help?


Daniel 4:34a "At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored."  

The Bible is full of examples of people whom God has raised up from obscurity and exalted to great prosperity. David was a young shepherd boy whom God made a king. Job was a humble farmer when God prospered him with financial independence. Amos was promoted from a fig picker to being one of the great prophets of God. Daniel was lifted from a lowly servant in a boot camp in Babylon to becoming a national commander.

But the key to their success was that they never lost perspective in the process. All these men remembered who it was who raised them up… where their help came from. Now Nebuchadnezzar joins their ranks acknowledging that “the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes” (cf. 7:25).

No matter what position you may now have, no matter what possessions you may now own, no matter what relationships you may now have, no matter what your present skills and abilities are, and no matter how secure you may now feel in these things, you must know that you are always in complete dependence on God.

Our dependence on God defines our humble faith. You know I love ya, Don
