Daniel Chapter 4 records Nebuchadnezzar’s journey from rebellion to praise, a hard path marked by humiliation. Alistair Begg explains that God does not relent in His gracious pursuit of sinners, but brings men and women face to face with His greatness so that we can appreciate our need. The wonder of the Gospel is that this God, who is completely sufficient and perfect in who He is, humbled Himself in Christ Jesus so that we can be reconciled to Him.
17The sentence is by the decree of the watchers, the decision by the word of the holy ones, to the end that the living may know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will and sets over it the lowliest of men.’
