Faithful Longevity

Re:Verse passage – Daniel 8:1-27 (day four)

These visions deal with some very heavy events.  The impact of what is to come will affect the whole world.  Empires and nations…kings and armies…death and destruction…no portion of the earth will escape their repercussions.

One thing that stands out in these narratives is the trust that God placed in Daniel to receive these visions of the future.  Daniel had a long and intimate relationship with God.  His regular, consecrated prayer relationship with the Lord punctuated the glory he ascribed to God and his willingness to serve God, even in very trying circumstances.  Consistency and longevity in our walk with Christ will result in a deeper relationship and a greater usefulness to the kingdom of God.  When we are faithful to the little assignments God gives us, we find He will give us greater responsibility.  God will not give us a new and greater task though until we have obeyed the last thing He told us.  What is God telling you to do? …and have you obeyed?
