Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
But there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries.
These are the words of the prophet Daniel as he stood before King Nebuchadnezzar to reveal his dream to him. The king had a dream that troubled him, but he couldn’t remember what it was. None of his Babylonian wise men could answer him, and so he decided to kill them all. When they came for Daniel, he said, “Give me a night to pray on it.” So the king granted him one night. Daniel and his friends prayed, and God gave him the answer. The king was so pleased that he let all of his wise men live and placed the Jewish young man, Daniel, in charge of all of them.
The power of this story is that “Our God Reveals Mysteries.” The king of Babylon had been troubled by a dream that he couldn’t remember. His wise men said to him that no one in the world could interpret a dream that the dreamer can’t remember. In effect, they were saying, “Give us a little something to go on, King!” But he couldn’t. Because he was a despot, Nebuchadnezzar said, “Kill them all!” However, Daniel, who had not even been brought in the first time, asked for one night to pray. The king relented, and in the night, while Daniel and his friends prayed, the Lord gave Daniel what the king dreamed and the interpretation of the dream. When he went before the king the next day, he reiterated the fact that no earthly human could do what the king had asked. “But there is a God in Heaven who reveals mysteries.” When he interpreted the king’s vision, Daniel saved all of the king’s wise men. May we never forget that God will do the same for us if we ask because “Our God Reveals Mysteries.”
I’m so grateful that You still reveal mysteries to Your people today. I’m believing this AM that the confusion this pandemic has placed our world in will soon be understood by Your people as being done for us and not to us. Amen
