Daniel & Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream — Daniel’s wisdom & hearing from God.

Today’s Readings:

Reading 1: Daniel 2

Reading 2: Amos 3:7

Reading 3: Ezekiel 28:1-10

“The Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7).

Today we read how God showed Daniel what Nebuchadnezzar had dreamed, and the meaning of the dream. Daniel predicts four kingdoms (the Babylonians, the Medes & Persians, the Greeks & Macedonians and the Romans) who will finally give way to the Kingdom of God.

We know that Daniel was accurate in the predictions about the four kingdoms. History and archeology tell us that Daniel’s words came to pass. It is therefore a safe assumption that the future aspects of Daniel’s revelation are also true.

We have seen the entry of God’s Kingdom with Jesus, and we know His Kingdom will be eternal. We are waiting for Jesus to return and inaugurate his earthly reign,

In the meantime, let’s live boldly, as Daniel did, and trust God in any tight corners we find ourselves in!

Have a great day!
