[The Glory Unveiled]
Now I have heard that you are able to give interpretations and to solve difficult problems. If you can read this writing and tell me what it means, you will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain placed around your neck, and you will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.” ( Daniel 5:16 )
King Belshazzar had seen a writing on the wall of his palace but the writing was mysterious in to him; it was difficult to interpret. He called all the wise men and the magicians of his land to interpret what was written by the hand that appeared like a human hand but none could. At this point the king was very disturbed and terrified because he didn’t know what the mysterious writing was. Alas, his wife remembered Daniel and told the king to send for him. Now, Daniel had a track record of interpreting dreams and solving difficult problems ( verse 12). Daniel would never have been sent for if the magicians had interpreted the writings. It was the inability of the magicians and wisemen to interpret the writings that offered Daniel that golden opportunity to be the third highest in the kingdom. It is the gifts of a man that brings him before kings indeed. Whatever gifts we have must be maximized and until we maximize our gifts and the grace upon our lives, we will not be recognized. There are too many problems in the world seeking solutions but only few people have sharpened their gifts enough to be recognizably useful to others. The world, like king Belshazzar, is looking frantically for solutions, let us align ourselves with God and the world will have no option than to chase after us for solutions.
Prayer_Bead: Glorious King, Omniscient God, thank you for the opportunity to be a solution to my world. Help me not to disappoint you but rather sharpen the gift you gave me through adequate preparation and dependence on you.
