31 “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth. Daniel 2:31-35
As we learn to seek the presence of God, He will utterly destroy those things which we have set up as idols in our lives—the gold, the silver, the bronze, the iron and the clay things. These idols could be our children, our cars, our homes, our money or our status in life. The church has compromised the things of God. We’ve sold out to the things of this world instead of the church keeping the statutes and commandments of God. We worship these things instead of the Almighty God who is above all.
With the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, a stone fell upon the feet of the image that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces. Then the whole image fell of course, and so the gold, and silver, bronze, and iron, were all broken to pieces and beaten so small that they became like the chaff of the summer threshing-floors. Church, we must allow this very same stone cut out of the quarry by an unseen power, without hands, to fall upon the feet of those things that cause us not to worship and praise our Savior and King as we should. This stone represents the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and when we meet Him on the threshing floor of our lives, He will smash to pieces all those idols in our lives and replace them with His Mighty Power, Love, Joy, Peace and the Holy Ghost.
