Re:Verse reading–Daniel 3:1-2, 8-18, 25-29 (day five)
It’s been a wonderful week serving, working, and connecting with residents and children across the Calgary, Canada area. One of the tasks this week has been to shape the minds and hearts of children around the truths of God’s nature and character through singing. You know, the camp songs with the fun motions. One of my favorites has the following lyrics, “My God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing my God cannot do”. Sound familiar?? (If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.)
I wonder where these three teenagers learned and became convinced of God’s strength, power, and wisdom. Perhaps as children, their parents, grandparents, or others from their community of faith imparted these truths into their tender hearts. I’m praying for the next generation to be filled with that kind of trust and courage in God’s sovereignty and wisdom. I’m praying for parents, grandparents, and a community of faith that will intentionally and strategically remind and encourage them with these timeless truths.
