Other lessons from Daniel

Meshach, Shedrack and Abednego were promoted after they went through their trial.  Many people are being put to the trial of faith today. They refuse to bow down to the idol, and they will be promoted.  They held fast to their confession of faith.

Daniel was a man of prayer.  His life was a life of prayer and service.  He prayed and God revealed Nebuchadnezzar’s dream to him. 

Daniel prayed three times a day under the reign of King Darius.  Prayer became a way of life for Daniel.

God will show us the dream.  He will reveal mysteries to us.  He will show us things to come. He will show us things that are.  Daniel was shown Nebuchadnezzar’s dream but he was also shown the future.

People who devise cunning schemes to manipulate and hurt other people get caught in their own schemes.  The trap that they had laid down for Daniel was the trap that they fell to. 

The same people that were saved because Daniel was able to interpret the dream of Nebuchadnezzar were the same people who tried to kill Daniel, at least they were the same group of people, even after he saved them.  Daniel had three friends who were also faithful to God. He was part of the group of people who were advisers to the king, but only his three friends were close to him. He kept his three friends close; his personal, spiritual and moral life, he kept close to himself and his three friends.
