Wednesday Wonderful Words


May the Lord God bless thee and keep thee, the scripture today is out of Daniel, hope you enjoy our short study.

14 ¶ Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king’s guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:

15 He answered and said to Arioch the king’s captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.

16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.

17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:

18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: (Verse on Photo)

22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.

What an awesome Testimony Daniel had for the lord, he never backed down from any one of importance, even the king, he could of had him killed but instead asked for him to interpret what the things had meant, that was the hand of God upon Daniel, now, is the hand of God upon you, do you stand up for what you know is right and pleasing to the lord? Or do you back down when some one of influence is around, get quiet, and not be heard as a voice for the lord. 
May we always be strong in the lord, as Timothy said always ready to give an account,  2Ti 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. May we always be ready to tell some one just the Bible says, we speak for our lord and it is important to know what we are talking about. May we all commit to be more vigilant and forthcoming with the word of God, to be more intent on the things of the lord, to be about our father's business in daily things, and may we worship the lord God Almighty, in Spirit and truth.
