Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits and its width six cubits. He set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Continue reading
Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him. The king answered Daniel, and said, “Truly your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you could reveal this secret.” Continue reading

Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. Continue reading
These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,

And one who sows discord among brethren. Continue reading
But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich’ (Genesis 14:22, 23)

It is written, better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. (Proverbs 16:19)
This is what Abram did!
It is wise to do the same!
Abba Father, I am ashamed of all my sin. It’s memory still haunts me. Yet I know the blood of Jesus has cleansed me from it all. I rejoice in this. YES&AMEN
Gal 6:14 God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ…
I want to continue with the thought from yesterday, using an article from Worldnetdaily.
The designers of the Titanic were so sure that it couldn’t sink that they made no provision for such a disaster. They had so much faith in themselves and their design of the ocean liner, that they hardly gave the need for lifeboats a second thought.
The overconfidence of the Titanic designers wasn’t amendable. They couldn’t fix the problem of the sinking ship after it struck the iceberg. It was too late because there was no second chance. When they called for help, none came. Continue reading
