Scripture: Daniel (NIV) 2:27 Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mysteries he has asked about, 28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in the days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these:…
Observation: The king was looking to his “wise” men to answer his question. If he would tell them the dream, they would give an interpretation as to what it meant. But it had all vanished from the king’s memory. He wanted them to tell him the dream and the interpretation. Of course, they could not, but there is a God in heaven who can easily do both.
Application: May I, like Daniel, not be afraid to take on a challenge greater than myself. There is a God in heaven! He sees all. He knows all. And he speaks! He shares his knowledge and wisdom! To understand what he is saying to me is the most valuable ability I have. Like good earthly parents, this Heavenly Parent communicates with me in ways I understand
Prayer: Lord, help me grow in recognizing the many ways you speak to me. Help me grow in understanding what you are saying to me. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
