Daniel 1 to 3 When confronted with what seems an impossible request, what do you choose to do? Today, many are standing up or choosing to be vaccinated. What do you do? Take a lesson out of Daniel’s diary; go to God in prayer. “O God of my fathers, I acknowledge and glorify you, for you have bestowed wisdom and power on me. Now you have enabled me to understand what we requested from you.” [Dan 2:23]
First, Daniel acknowledged who God is, the revealer of secrets. Secondly, he glorified God for what He can or will do. Thirdly it seems he waited through the night for an answer, and when it came, he honored God for revealing the answer. Fourthly, Daniel did not face this problem alone. That is key! He sought the help of his three best friends because, ultimately, it would affect them all. “He asked them to pray for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery so that he and his friends would not be destroyed along with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. ” [Dan 2:18]
Who are your praying brothers/sisters that will come alongside you to pray you through what seems an impossible request?
