Daniel 4:5 - "I saw a dream that made me afraid. As I lay in bed the fancies and the visions of my head alarmed me."

Daniel 4:15-16 - "Let him be wet with the dew of heaven. Let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth. 16 Let his mind be changed from a man’s, and let a beast’s mind be given to him; and let seven periods of time pass over him.”

Vs.22-23 “Yet you, his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, even though you knew all this, but you have exalted yourself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines have been drinking wine from them; and you have praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which do not see, hear or understand. But the God in whose hand are your life-breath and all your ways, you have not glorified.
James 4:10 - "Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you."
An If/Then Statement:
"IF you humble yourself in the presence of the Lord, THEN He will exalt you."

Truth - "In the Kingdom of God, the way up is down."

A. God's Attitude Toward Pride
Proverbs 6:16-17 Things the Lord Hates...Haughty Eyes
Proverbs 15:25 The Lord will tear down the house of the Proud...
Proverbs 16:5 "everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord."
Isaiah 13:11 Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless.
James 5:6 "God is opposed to the Proud..."
We are never commanded to "Be" Humble.
We are commanded to "Humble Ourselves"

How do you live out humility?
1. By daily acknowledging my need for Christ
2. By repenting of my sin before God
3. By giving my life to serve Him by serving others
