Summary: The highest reward for man’s toll is not what he gets for it but what he becomes by it.
It is one thing to call yourself something; it is another thing for God to call you something else. One of our elders in the Lord said, “ You may decide to call yourself a pastor or an apostle or an evangelist, but in the book of God which is the only book that matters, He writes that you are messenger” it is not what you call yourself that matters but what God calls you. Daniel 5:1-2 (quickview)
“Belshazzar the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand.  Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple, which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein”.
The party went on for a long time. Then all of a sudden, probably because of the effect of the alcohol, the king ordered his servants to bring the vessels that were taken from the temple in Jerusalem. At that level, he overstepped his bounds, l pray that you will not overstep your bounds, in Jesus name. He went too far. A person can go too far. He can push himself to a level where the Spirit of God no longer strives, a level where God gives up on him. At a time the spirit will be urging you to pray, read the bible watch your temper etc. But a time will come when the spirit would no longer strive with you. Once a person gets to that level, destruction is certain. I pray that will not be your lot in Jesus name.
“Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.  They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.
 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaster of the wall of the king’s palaceLwhy did the fingers go to the plaster of the wall? Because there was some light there and the writing would be seen clearly. It was like watching a cinema show) and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.  Then the king’s countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, ( He knew that whatever that writing might be, it would not bring a good message)so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.  The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom”.
“Then came in all the king’s wise men: but they could not read the writing, nor make known to the king the interpretation thereof.  Then was king Belshazzar greatly troubled, and his countenance was changed in him, and his lords were astonied”.
