Daniel 4:34 At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever.
Here, because of his pride, King Nebuchadnezzar suffers an illness called by doctors today as “Boanthropy” where a man imagines himself to be an animal and acts like one. In here, King Nebuchadnezzar began eating grass. You may want to note this illness cos I’m kind of thinking that you don’t want to catch this one!
The good thing is, the Bible is full of such amazing stories of men and women who have been raised from the depths. We could talk of Job and all that he went through… yet God restored all that he had lost. We could talk of Joseph, wrongly accused and thrown into prison until the timing of God was such that he should be exalted and made ruler over Egypt! We could talk of a wicked king of Judah called Manasseh who was taken with a hook in his nose and shackles on his feet down into a dungeon in Babylon. And yet, in the depths of his despair, he called on God with a repentant heart and God lifted him out of that hole and through pure grace he ended up in the line and genealogy of Jesus! (It’s a great story, please read 2 Chron 33). Or what about the thief on the cross? Did you know that at the start of the crucifixion both of the thieves were mocking Jesus?
In our verse above, King Nebuchadnezzar humbled himself to God and the Lord restores his sanity.
