Re:Verse passage – Daniel 9:1-23 (day four)
When reading our passage this week, one character quality stands out for Daniel…humility. This was not the first time Daniel sought the Lord, but when circumstances became overwhelming, he went to God for answers. Daniel’s humility is evident as he confesses the sins of his nation…he includes himself in the intercession.
Daniel’s eyes were on the Lord. He knew where to find truth amid the confusion. When the voices of culture are screaming confusion and accusation, truth can be found in only one place…the Lord. Daniel had oriented his life around his relationship with the Lord and he found understanding through prayer. He recognized that each of us is responsible for obedience to God.
Are the circumstances around you confusing? Are you hearing mixed messages everywhere you turn? Whether it’s political speak, coronavirus speculation, or outright lies, the world will not give you truth. Seek truth where Daniel found it…in humility, read His Word and pray. You may discover how much God loves you!
