DETOX: Day 1 (Daniel 2)

Thursday April 30: Daniel 2

Read Daniel 2

“With the all-powerful God nothing is impossible.” This was Daniel’s reply to King Nebuchadnezzar in verses 27-30. Wisdom and power belong to our God (v.20), but He freely gives to us because of His mercy (v.18). Before you go too much further today, ask God to enable you to make Him known and intercede for the lost in this city.

Deeper Study: Compare Daniel 2 with Genesis 41 the story of Joseph and Pharaoh

My Reflections:
In ch 2, I am reminded of God's sovereignty as He works out His plans through the faithfulness of His people. Daniel was brought into Babylon as a slave with no rights and because of the goodness of God and his faithfulness, by the end of ch. 2 he finds himself standing in front of the king that is bowing at his feet. Wow! I am encouraged by this text as I share Christ in Uptown. There are a lot of people that don't care anything about Christ in this city. It seems like it is impossible for them to come to faith in Christ. But God is calling us to be faithful. I pray that these people who refuse to even consider Christ, will be bowing at the feet of Christ in the near future. I believe it can happen for the glory of God. Nothing is impossible!
