"And to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed."
(Daniel 7:14 ESV)
Sad and scary days. Increasingly tense relationships with government powers. A desperate need for fervent prayer. An idolatrous world who needs to know the one true God.
Does this sound like our day and age? It is actually a description of the situation of Daniel and his friends to the letter, only his situation was far more difficult than our own. God filled these young teenagers with faith to endure the fire and fury of a godless world, and he did it by showing them that he was the ultimate King overall.
This summer (starting June 7), we will be digging into the book of Daniel from beginning to end. Our prayer is that God, through his word, teaches us to live with undivided allegiance to the indestructible Kingdom of God.
