Certainty: “Your God is the God of gods”

We're looking at Daniel 2 and the king’s extraordinary dream. What stands out is the certainty we can have as believers because of who God is. Certainty about good things is in short supply in our day. People convince themselves that a relationship, an investment, a job, their health are certain, when they know deep inside that they’re not. When these “certainties” fail, defeatism and despair can set in.

The better way, of course, is to focus on the one thing that is certain: who God is. By the end of this week’s passage, a pagan king is proclaiming the unmatched certainty of who God is: “Truly, your God is God of gods and Lord of kings, and a revealer of mysteries.” Indeed, he is. And our firm resolve to live for him is grounded in that certainty. Nothing else comes close.
