Bible Verse(s)Daniel 5:5-6
That weather forecaster may never be the same! Even though she knew that the spider wasn’t in the studio it startled so much that she couldn’t continue with the forecast?
What scares you? Would you freak out if you opened your sock drawer and saw a mouse? Would a spider crawling up your back right now make you scream? (I bet you just checked!)
Sometimes when we think about stories from the Bible we don’t really think of people freaking out, we only think of people being strong and mighty for God. Daniel 5 records one of these times when King Belshazzar had a crazy encounter!
“Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. His face turned pale and he was so frightened that his legs became weak and his knees were knocking.”
So relax about being scared sometimes. At least you aren’t seeing a human hand writing on the wall!
1. Has you ever freaked out over something that wasn’t real?
2. Would you rather discover a spider or a mouse in your sock drawer?
3. When was a time you were scared but you knew God was with you?
