Do Not Let Your Thoughts Trouble You

King Belshazzar saw the handwriting on the wall, literally. It frightened him so much that his knees knocked, literally. Knowing how troubled he was, his wife spoke to him in wisdom, saying, “The queen, because of the words of the king and his lords, came to the banquet hall. The queen spoke, saying, ‘O king, live forever! Do not let your thoughts trouble you, nor let your countenance change. There is a man in your kingdom in whom is the Spirit of the Holy God…'” (Daniel 5:10-12).
The king’s troubling thoughts could be smoothed by listening to a man in whom was the Spirit of the Holy God. Friends, I say the same thing to you. Listen to the words of the men who wrote the Bible, because the Spirit of the Holy God moved them to write the exceedingly wise words of our Creator. Also, listen to people who have a knowledge of the writings of those men.
Many things seek to trouble our thoughts, but never forget that you have in your possession the words of the Holy God, not written on a wall, but written in a Book that resides in your home and often sits on your lap.
