Discussion for Daniel 4:16

  • Jeanette Campbell /Warner for verse 16
    To change a heart you must know it, and the word asks us who can know this wicked and perverse miracle that God has given us? Jeremiah 17:9. Only God can know our hearts because He created us in His own image, and not only that, He is the Holy and awesome one that changes what He wishes, whatever He desires He is God; maker of heaven and earth.
  • Justina ekpen orukpe for verse 16
    That man is nothing but a pencil in the hands of God.
