The testimony of a wicked king

"King Nebuchadnezzar to everyone, everywhere—every race, color, and creed: “Peace and prosperity to all! It is my privilege to report to you the gracious miracles that the High God has done for me.
“His miracles are staggering,
    his wonders are surprising.
His kingdom lasts and lasts,
    his sovereign rule goes on forever."

As I read those words I thought,  “if God can do that with him what can he do with me?”  Do I speak of God as he did?  Do I celebrate him in such wonderful words? Do I praise him so well?

This was a pagan king, but his praise of God in the end is that of a true God worshipper.  Oh might we who say we are his children praise him half as well!
