Then Daniel (also called Belteshazzar) was greatly perplexed for a time, and his thoughts terrified him. So the king said, “Belteshazzar, do not let the dream or its meaning alarm you.”
Daniel 4:19a (NIV)
The rest of the verse states : Belteshazzar answered, “My lord, if only the dream applied to your enemies and its meaning to your adversaries!
As I read this I am reminded of the dreams many of us have for our own lives … and how we can be terrified by them. Terrified, quite an extreme word. But I think the dreams that we hesitate before stepping towards, shock us to the point of …really.. this? Which is quite silly, because God knows who we are and what we can handle.
God has His plans and His purposes, and if He has placed the dream in you then you can know that it is possible. Even if you don’t understand it.
The dream that Daniel (Belteshazzar) had to interpret, was King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. He was summoned .. and as the King put it “Now, Belteshazzar, tell me what it means, for none of the wise men in my kingdom can interpret it for me. But you can, because the spirit of the holy gods is in you.” (Daniel 4:18)(NIV)
When God calls you .. or when you are summoned … it is time to take responsability. He trusts you, and believes that you are to be part of the solution that is required.
So, Step Up to the Plate!
