Daniel 4: 29, 30: “Twelve months later he was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon. The king reflected and said, ‘Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself have built as a royal residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?’” The Lord gave Nebuchadnezzar a full year to come to terms with his own humanity and God’s divinity. He didn’t get very far, as this incident shows. So what does God do? In His justice He treats the king the same way the king had treated others – by exiling him into a foreign land (the field). Then in His mercy God restores him once he got the point. Daniel chapter four is a unique and powerful picture of God’s dominion, His justice, and His mercy; each one abundant!
