Daniel 7-9 | Pastor Tim Schlatter |
God gives direction and purpose in life, without which we don't do very well. Prov. 29:18 puts it this way: "When people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves." The good news is that God does reveal His way to us, and He blesses us each time we listen and obey. We don't need to stumble through life, erratically changing course, trying this for a bit, then something else - a new ministry for a week, a new church for a month, a new marriage for a couple of years!
Daniel's life was characterized by vision from God and prayer. As we open our lives to God, we will find ourselves, like Daniel, having our vision continually reshaped by that of His Kingdom. And we will find ourselves to be prayerfully following - a long obedience in the same direction.
