Bold as Lions: The Prideful King

Bold as Lions: The Book of Daniel

Daniel 4 is an account of how King Nebuchadnezzar learned a difficult lesson about his pride. Through God's judgment, the king learned that the journey from self pride to praising God came through the valley of humiliation. There are lessons that apply to us today. Pride gets pleasure from self-sufficiency. Pride is claiming to be the author of what is a gift. It is clear from Nebuchadnezzar's experience that God is able to humble those who walk in pride. The cure for pride is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

From Series: "Bold as Lions: The Book of Daniel"

This series explores the narrative of the unlikely hero, Daniel. Even though God's people are in exile because of their unrepentance, the God of Abraham, Jacob and Issac has not given up on them. God uses Daniel and his friends to: (1) Embolden us to stand firm in the face of opposition, especially when the deck is stacked against us; (2) Give hope to His representatives that God is still sovereign over the affairs of the world and will strategically place us to be people of influence; and (3) Reveal that God sovereignly uses powerful kings and kingdoms in his cosmic plans to bring justice and His eternal kingdom. Will we be bold as lions and trust in God's sovereign plan through trouble?
