Nebuchadnezzar's Fall and Restoration by God

Daniel 4:37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.
Nebuchadnezzar, aka Lucifer, gives praise to God

Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon from 605 to 562 BC. He was a powerful and successful ruler, but he also became arrogant and prideful. In the Book of Daniel, we read about how God humbled Nebuchadnezzar by causing him to lose his mind and live like an animal for seven years.

Nebuchadnezzar's Fall

The story of Nebuchadnezzar's fall begins with a dream that he had. In the dream, he saw a large tree that was cut down. The stump of the tree was left in the ground, but it was banded with iron and bronze.

Daniel interpreted the dream for Nebuchadnezzar. He told the king that the tree represented himself. The cutting down of the tree represented the seven years of madness that God would inflict on him. The stump of the tree represented Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom, which would be restored to him after the seven years.

Nebuchadnezzar's Madness

The dream came true. For seven years, Nebuchadnezzar lived like an animal. He ate grass and lived in the fields. His hair grew long and his nails became like claws.

At the end of the seven years, Nebuchadnezzar's mind was restored. He praised God and acknowledged that God was the one who had humbled him.

Nebuchadnezzar's Restoration

Nebuchadnezzar's restoration was a sign of God's mercy and grace. God forgave Nebuchadnezzar for his pride and restored him to his former position as king.

The story of Nebuchadnezzar's fall and restoration is a reminder that God is sovereign over all things. He can humble the proud and exalt the humble. He can also forgive those who repent of their sins.
