I also wrote over a page of thoughts from my daily reading in Daniel 4-9. Here are a few of my "thots"…
- 4:17 — God? You put WHOEVER You want in charge, whether it's a king, president, mayor, congressman, councilman, business owner, CEO, dictator, talk-show host, middle-level manager, clergy, principal, coach, etc. And some of these people are the "lowest" of people. And it doesn't change a THING about who's still in charge (i.e. You).
- 4:30 — Ugh. What's he saying? "I have built? By MY mighty power? For the honor of MY majesty?" That's a MAJOR blunder, rooted in pride, arrogance, & abject stupidity. (Dear God, may I NEVER make that mistake!!!)
- 5:5-6 — I think I would have been freaked out too! 🙂
- 6:5 — Lord!!! That this might be how You & people around us describe US!!!
- 6:10 — Wow. Daniel changed NOTHING in the face of an unjust law that commanded Him to directly disobey God.
- 6:18 — Wow again. Here's when a king FASTED for Daniel!
- 8:27 — Daniel was sick for DAYS over this vision. But he still got up every day, went to work, & served the king regardless of how he felt.
- 9:2 — Daniel's life was changed by reading Jeremiah too!
- 9:3-5 — More prayer & fasting –> for when you REALLY need to seek God & confess sin & pray for direction & guidance
Love you guys!
P.S. Go write a letter to God & seek Him in the word today. There's NOTHING like it! God is like air. You can't go very long without Him and live to tell about it. 🙂
