God had allowed the unthinkable to happen. His people were in exile in Babylon. His promises seemed shattered. Was He really in control? Was he still faithful and does He still care? These questions were on the minds of the Israelites in the 5th century. Maybe they are on your minds today as you think about the present state of our Nation. But as we study the book of Daniel we will see that the answers to those questions today, as they were then, are YES! The Lord is King….even in Babylon.
