Nebuchadnezzar asks Daniel, “Are you able to make known to me the dream that I have seen and its interpretation” (Dan. 2:26, ESV)? Daniel then proceeded to tell the king the details of his dream.
No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or astrologers can show to the king the mystery that the king has asked, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream and the visions of your head as you lay in bed are these: To you, O king, as you lay in bed came thoughts of what would be after this, and he who reveals mysteries made known to you what is to be (Daniel 2:27-29, ESV).
Daniel’s pronouncement was a testimony to the existence, sovereignty, and power of God. The God of heaven is all-knowing, while the gods of the Babylonians do not know a thing. The God of heaven is all- seeing, while the gods of the Babylonians do not see a thing. The God of heaven is all-sovereign, setting up kings and kingdoms and tearing them down. To set up kings and tear them down is the sign of a true, sovereign, and powerful God in heaven! Daniel was saying, “There is a God in heaven, who reveals secrets, and this God has decided to reveal the future to you.”
God completes the future, because He rules in heaven. He sees the secrets of the hearts of men. He knows exactly the pain that you are feeling today. He knows precisely what you are thinking today. He sees clearly the deep secrets of your heart. He sees plainly your thoughts on your bed at night. He reveals His purposes for you and me for tomorrow!
There is a God in heaven. There is a God who accomplishes all things according to His purposes. There is a God who determines the course of world events.
Are you facing times of trials and troubles today? There is a God in heaven. Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”(KJV)
Do you need somebody to talk to—someone who listens? There is a God in heaven that hears and answers prayer.
Do you feel like giving up? There is a God in heaven who gives you hope and a future.
Do you need peace of mind today? There is a God in heaven who can give you perfect peace.
