What were we thinking?


Seek Him firstRemember how we thought before we had the LORD? What were we thinking? I and I hope you as well remember when we discovered a loving God could restore us back to sanity. When we were lost in whatever it was that kept us from believing in God under the strong hold of grandiose thinking. I am guilty my friends, I believed that I was above it all, a god unto myself, accountable to no one. Can anyone relate with this kind of thinking?

Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, was the most powerful ruler on this earth. Because he was a king, he demanded to be worshiped. However, through Daniel God said to him, “This is what the Most High has declared will happen to you. You will be driven from human society, and you will live in the fields with the wild animals until you learn that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world and gives them to anyone he chooses” (Daniel 4:24-25). The king had to learn that the heavens rule in all aspects of this life.

Furthermore, this happened exactly as Daniel predicted. At the end of the king’s time in exile, he said, “I looked up to heaven. My sanity returned, and I praised and worshiped the Most High and honored the one who lives forever. When my sanity returned to me, so did my honor and glory and kingdom with even greater honor than before. Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and glorify and honor the King of heaven. All his acts are just and true, and he is able to humble the proud” (Daniel 4:34, 36-37).

The lesson that the king received is the same for us to this day. It is imperative that we realize that we are not God; we are accountable to God. God can remedy our “madness” and restore our life to be even better than it was before our season of “insanity.” God will do so if we entrust our life to him. Thank you LORD and God bless you all.

I encourage you to read Daniel 4:19-33

Youth leader,

About spiritministries

I am a man who has learned not to rely on my own understanding the hard way. God revealed himself to me two and a half years before I got out of prison. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. There is truly only one way and that is to have a relationship with God. Since my release S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries has came to fruition. We meet every Wednesday night at 7p.m. God asked me to write a book, in 18 months I finished Rock Bottom; Inspired by God, He provided me with a web blog, thank you Andrew, as you can see, I am a motivational-inspirational speaker, and singer. We now have a band known as The Un-Scene, you can find the link on my web site and check it out on face book. I am just a man who was given true life while in prison, freedom, salvation, and unspeakable joy by the grace of God. We go many places to speak and sing for the glory of God. I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything a part from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. If you would like to hear us just contact me and God willing we will remain obedient. God bless you all.

  1. Youth Leader, great post! How often we forget to look to the heavens for regained sanity! We live in our own world trying to convince ourselves we are sane, or medicating to feel sane, when all along sanity isn’t an internal state, but an eternal one. Thanks again. God bless your ministry.
