The Reading for Today: Daniel 2
Daniel lives in such intimacy with the Lord that he knows he will receive all he needs in the crisis in which he finds himself. He already has the prayer of thanksgiving and praise in his heart that he expresses after he receives the answer from the Lord about the King’s dream. Daniel’s commitment to the Lord alone results in receiving God’s protection, comfort, and power against all adversities. Daniel is a model of intimacy maintained with the Lord. God alone is sovereign.
All you need to know spiritually will be given to you as you pour out your heart in prayer before the Lord. As Daniel, stand out against the crowd in your trust in the Lord. It will give you a serenity that no one can take from you.
