Abide Together: Reflections on Daniel 5
Daniel 5 records when Belshazzar, son of Nebuchadnezzar & King of Babylon, had a drunken party to worship the false gods of Babylon. The LORD sent a hand to write a prophecy on the wall, which really shook Belshazzar. Belshazzar could not find anyone to interpret the writing, so the people told him about Daniel. Belshazzar sent for Daniel and Daniel interpreted the writing, which basically said that God had weighed him and found him lacking and was going to give his kingdom over to the Medes and Persians. That same night Belshazzar was slain. This account reminds me that the LORD alone is Sovereign and deserves my worship. HE will eventually knock down all who do not worship HIM as the one true God. LORD, help give You worship and praise alone in all things.
