Today's Reading: Daniel 4-6
Whether Daniel was interpreting a strange dream with an even stranger outcome, reading writing on a wall scribed by a mysterious hand, praying and communing with the one true God while all others were bowing to a human or spending the night in a den with some very large cats, Daniel was speaking for God.
Each time, his articulation went against the reigning and obvious power of the day, and relied upon the unseen reality of Jehovah, the most high God.
Though humble and refusing gifts for his prophecy, he boldly spoke and patiently waited upon the provision of God for his every need.
I wonder what it would have been like to live alongside a man like Daniel. As we read his story, we cannot help but be amazed.
