Writing on the Wall

Do we see the "writing on the wall"?

I love that old expression and reading God's Word this morning it hit me do we see when God writes on the wall for us?

I know He sends messages very plainly. He speaks through His Word and others, but do we get it? Do we realize and listen?

Here this King knew these important vessels were brought from God's temple and yet they were using them actually drinking from them while praising other gods! Imagine, how awful that action was to God!

Read the story in Daniel 5 for yourself and be reminded that God does warn! God does write on the wall in warnings and imagine sitting in that room as Daniel shared the meaning of the "writing on the wall."

God numbered his days, he didn't measure up, and his kingdom was going to be divided! Talk about quieting down a party! I imagine they quickly remembered all they had heard of the things God had done and knew in their hearts they were about to witness some of this themselves!

Sweet blessings,

I have always associated that saying with making something "clear." Judgement had been pronounced, that king's reign was about to end. God is in control!
