Nebuchadnezzar II and Job were two men greatly abased.


First we look at Nebuchadnezzar II, to whom God gave him the mind of a beast for 7 years to humble him:.Proverbs 15:33; 18:12. Why did he lack humility? He was ego filled:.Daniel 4:29-31.

Daniel 4:37 "Now I Nebuchadnezzar-II.(a powerful world ruler in Daniel's time, he was king of Babylon, a very great ancient city; this was in about B.C.E. 534).praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all whose works are truth and his ways judgment and those that walk in pride He is able to abase.(original Hebrew is 'depress, sink')."

The agony was Nebuchadnezzar-II's. Likewise the agony of living is ours when alone without the Creator's influence in our lives, living by our egos for what else do we then have to live by? When with the Creator, we come to begin to understand and onward toward an overstanding of why any agony.

Great king Nebuchadnezzar II finally was abased. And in that abasement he discovered how great the true God is. He now, in retrospect.(looking back on things), saw how prideful he had been.

Read Nebuchadnezzar II's story in Daniel 4th chapter of how this great King of Babylon became an actual wild beast for seven years.

Psalms 107:12,13 "Therefore he brought down their heart with labour.(original is 'misery'); they fell down and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble and he saved them out of their distresses."

Creator is in absolute total control of everything going on. Much He allows and some He steers. In things important to His designed purpose, He intervenes to keep His plan on track.

In all else, it is because of Him we even breathe:.Psalms 66:9 "Which holds our soul in life and suffers.(allows).our feet not to be moved." Acts 17:28 "For in him we live and move and have our being, as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring." Colossians 1:17 "And he is before all things and by him all things consist."

Hebrews 1:3 "Who being the brightness of his glory and the express image of his person and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.".John 3:13. That's Emmanuel. What about Creator-Father?

The reason why we are here eludes most people. In Nebuchadnezzar II's case of his big ego, Creator wanted a particular point of character.inculcated. The Creator always accomplishes His purpose:.Romans 9:19 ".....For who has resisted his will.....?"
