Scripture to be used in a Newsletter/Magazine before introducing Testimonies
I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has worked …. (Daniel 4:2)

Dreams and your Mood
I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts on my bed and the visions of my head troubled me. (Daniel 4:5)
Dreams play a major role in our life and it is therefore not surprising that dreams can affect mood. This scripture clearly tells us that King Nebuchadnezzar was troubled because of the dream that he say. In his case it made him afraid. Fear gripped his heart.
There have been times where people are in a bad mood throughout the day and they can’t figure out why. It could be that they had a bad dream the night before that drained them out. So is it possible that dreams can affect your mood throughout the day in a positive or negative way, depending on the dream?
If you have seen a bad dream it can affect your mood very adversely. This is because you really don’t know the interpretation of that particular dream or what steps to take in relation to the dream. The best course of action would be to interpret the dream biblically – and this is exactly what Nebuchadnezzar did.
6 Therefore I issued a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known to me the interpretation of the dream.
The Spirit of the Holy God is in me (Daniel 4:8)
I am able for the Spirit of the Holy God is in me (Daniel 4:18)
“I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven. (Daniel 4:13)
‘ This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.’ (Daniel 4:17)
“And inasmuch as the king saw a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven and saying, ‘Chop down the tree and destroy it, but leave its stump and roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze in the tender grass of the field; let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let him graze with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him’; (Daniel 4:23)
The watchers are a class of angels whose job is to monitor the activities of humans. Watchers can be good or evil. In the above scriptures, the watcher is described as a ‘holy one’. Notice the emphasis on the word ‘a holy one’.
Da 4:27 Therefore, O king, let my advice be acceptable to you; break off your sins by being righteous, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity.”
Notice, the steps outlined for prosperity by Prophet Daniel
break off your sins by being righteous,
and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor.
Pride – the reason for the fall
29 At the end of the twelve months he was walking about the royal palace of Babylon. 30 The king spoke, saying, “Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?” 31 While the word was still in the king’s mouth, a voice fell from heaven: “King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: the kingdom has departed from you! (Daniel 4:29-30)

One of the Jeffrey brothers who was greatly used in the healing ministry once remarked, “the whole world is at my feet” The same arthritis clung to his body.
37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down. (Daniel 4:37)
And my understanding returned to me….(Daniel 4:34)
