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

And I, Daniel, was overcome and lay sick for some days. Then I rose and went about the king’s business, but I was appalled by the vision and did not understand it. Daniel 8:27

The little horn became the face and hand of evil against God’s presence among his people. This ruler would defile the temple in Jerusalem, the symbol of God’s presence, His covenant, and His mercy

The wickedness of humanity is not ambivalent to God. Every kingdom of earth will by its very nature find its way to the same place, trampling the truth of God and his people. This is precisely why Jesus said, “they are in the world but not of the world.” It’s why the Apostle Peter calls us aliens, citizens of a better Kingdom.

If the little horn tells us anything it’s this, we are not of this world!

So like Daniel, be restless, be sickened, grieve wickedness’ curse, then get up and be about God’s business.

One thought on “Sick”

  1. I loved your blog this morning, Danny. It reminded me of that Feeling out of place – being homesick feeling I experience a lot.
    It’s Beulah Land. :
    I’m kind of homesick for a country
    To which I’ve never been before
    No sad goodbyes will there be spoken
    For time won’t matter anymore…..

    But until then, we’ll be about the Fathers business.
