It is amazing that the God of much despised Judah Yahweh is recognized and honored by a foreign king like this at this time. The accounts of the prophet Daniel would have transpired by now.God has been working behind the scenes to make this happen. It is by God's promise, His mercy, His longsuffering, and for the sake of His name that we see this activity.
In the back of our minds, we want to think that is God is behind something we will know by how easy it goes. We stay in a job for instance because it is the path of least resistance. We ask for direction in prayer and then look for all the open doors and if there is no open door we assume that it is because God doesn't want us there. In this passage there was an open door, but don't expect that there will be no resistance; there will be much more resistance. What is being done is being done for God. He will make a way and He will make sure to teach us trust and obedience in the process.
