Daily Reading: Daniel 1-3


Daniel 2:10

The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.


Truer words have never been spoken. There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king’s matter. The king was Nebuchadnezzar, and he asked an impossible thing. He asked all the magicians, astrologers, sorcerers, and Chaldeans to show him the dream he had. He dreamed a dream but forgot the dream. So, he asked all these men of the earth to tell him his dream. They couldn’t! Yet, in their answer to the king they said a truth that should never be overlooked by God’s children.


They said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king’s matter. Of a truth this is so, but there is a God in Heaven that can! There is a God in Heaven that can give a human man the ability to show the king his dream. Daniel knew this to be true. He testified it to the king later when he said to Nebuchadnezzar…there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets… Daniel knew this to be true.


No person has it within themselves to do that which God can do through them. Jeremiah asked the question; can the leopard change his spots (Jeremiah 13:23)? The answer is no. Likewise, in this life there are things that no matter how much we desire we cannot do, know, or change. But the Lord God can. Daniel knew this, even the Chaldeans knew this.


The old saying is true. God can do that which none other can do. He did in Daniel’s day, and He can, and will, in our day. Whatever you need, ask the Lord, for if it is within the purview of His will He will do it, even if we cannot think it, understand it, comprehend it, or figure it out.


Until tomorrow, live for Christ today.
