Re:Verse passage – Daniel 7:1-28 (day seven)
“One like a Son of Man was coming […] And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom,” Daniel 7:13-14.
“The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him.” Mark 9:31
You can hear the disciples’ thoughts as Jesus says these words. This isn’t how Daniel said it was going to go! He was supposed to come on clouds and restore Israel back into prevalence. You can see the frustration of the Pharisees. This can’t be the “Son of Man” who is given dominion over the Earth.
He is not what was expected, but He is what was needed. Even today, Jesus doesn’t always work in the way we expect Him to work, but He always works in the way that is needed. It is easy to get caught into our own wants and desires, but if we truly learn from Daniel we will begin to think and pray differently. No longer will we ask for God to change our circumstances, rather we will ask God to use our circumstances to show His glory.
