With new years come many hopes, dreams, and aspirations, and dreams seem to have been a common occurrence for king Nebuchadnezzar. He had another dream and again he tried to find the meaning of his dream to no avail. But this time he remembered Daniel and knew that Daniel was the perfect person to explain his dream. When Daniel arrived the king says, “Belteshazzar [Daniel’s Babylonian name], chief of the magicians, I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in you, and no mystery is too difficult for you”. How amazing is that! Even the proud king of Babylon knew Daniel for his strong relationship with God. He even goes as far as saying that he knew no mystery was too hard for Daniel because God was with him.
