26 I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end.
27 He delivers and rescues, And He works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the [a]power of the lions.
Today’s Inspiration: The most significant relationship in life is based on the faith where love and trust triumph over disappointment. Sometimes we wonder why God allows us to go through the fiery furnace like Daniel’s three friends did and letting us face uncertainty of life like Daniel did. It is only at the end of the trial that you realise the test was inevitable for God’s ultimate purpose in your life to be fulfilled.
Every trial leads to something better the Lord wants us to have. He disciplines those He loves. At the end of Daniel’s trial, king Nebuchadzzar wrote a decree to all the people and nations of every language throughout the Land, acknowledging the unmatchable Almighty God as the living God, whose kingdom is indestructible and endures forever. He rescues and saves and He was the one who rescued Daniel from the power of lions. He is sovereign to perform signs and wonders both in heaven and on earth. Daniel 6:26-27.
Jesus’ teaching evolves around our faith. Would He find faith in us when He comes? In your defeat of unanswered prayers, where nothing right comes your way, it is only faith that can sustain you and empowers you to have victory over the uncertainties of life. We must allow the Lord to have full control of our life by trusting Him even when things don’t turn out to our expectation.
Having faith is more than believing. We are to remain faithful in His teaching and place full trust in His timing. There is a time for everything. Ecclesiastes 3:1. The disciples were tossed with fear and tensions after Jesus’ ascension but in God’s timing the church was established through them, and revival hit the Land. Acts 2.
Moses looked at Him who is invisible and rather regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ to be of greater value than the treasures of Egypt he would have inherited. He was looking ahead to the reward of the Almighty than earthly treasures. Hebrews 11:26-29. No relationship can be more meaningful and lasting than with the One who formed us and placed us in the mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13. He is the One who knows our life purpose and life span on earth. Verse 16. The Lord will fulfil His purpose for you. His love for you endures forever and will not abandon you which is the works of His hands. Psalm 138:8. Stay tuned to what the spirit of the Lord is speaking to you this morning.
