You, O king, are the king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, the strength and the glory…   Daniel 2:37

I’ve read that before, but never really noticed how very similar it is to the Lord’s prayer:  “For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory…”  But Daniel was saying this to an earthly king, Nebuchadnezzar!  He even called him the “king of kings” a term I usually reserve for God.  So what’s the difference?  The Lord’s prayer goes on to say “,,,FOREVER” 

Ah, yes.  A man may be the king of kings and have a kingdom with power and glory, but only GOD has that forever.  Other kingdoms come, and other kingdoms go, but the kingdom of God will stand for all eternity!

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.
