Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. Daniel 2: 20–22
God is in control in spite of our present condition.
God sees in the dark - and light spills out of Him.
Sometimes God will deliver us from the furnace
and sometimes God meets us in the furnace.
God meets us in the fire and He rescues us from the lions.
God is sovereign over human kings and earthly kingdoms.
Faith that receives grace always becomes gracious.
Kings and kingdoms will rise and fall
but at the end of days God’s kingdom will remain.
When we struggle to understand what God is doing we turn to God’s word.
Confession is the first step toward restoration.
The Battle Is Bigger Than We Realize and Prayer is our Best Weapon.
And at the end of day (and the end of days):
Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky at midday, and those who make the many righteous will shine as the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12: 2 and 3
