And you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. They have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your Lords, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine from them. And you have praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze and iron, wood and stone, which do not see or hear or know; and the God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified. Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written. And Darius the Mede received the kingdom, being about sixty-two years old.
Daniel 5:23‭-‬24‭, ‬31 NKJV

Living in a fast-paced world makes it easy for many to forget that our every breath has been granted by God. The value of life is not measured by the sum of our achievements, rather it is determined by the hand of the heavenly Father. It is God who directs our lives and calls us to glorify Him in all things as we set out to accomplish the tasks He has appointed for us in this world.

Only God reigns and rules forever. There is no regime or ruler no matter how powerful and influential he has become that God cannot overthrow. The Lord God Almighty will not tolerate evil and despotic rulers forever, anyone that God allows to be in power but will not acknowledge God and glorify Him as God will someday be dethroned by God.

Therefore, make your life count and use every opportunity God has given you for His glory. May the Lord grant you help to always acknowledge Him and honour Him with your life and with everything He has graciously endowed you. Good morning and do have a glorious worship experience.

Your brother,
