Today

Yesterday I found great comfort in God's Word during Bible Study after our discussion on Daniel chapter nine and the teaching from Daniel chapter ten. I sat quietly in my seat and thought to myself that no matter what happens today, God is on the throne. He is the Ancient of Days. He knows.

The words of Daniel 2:20-22 that he spoke after God had revealed to him the secret of Nebuchadnezzar's dream are what is on my heart today...

Daniel answered and said: " Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:20-22
My husband has taught from the book of Revelation over the past four weeks. And the message that it brings is HOPE. Although there are still many things that I don't fully grasp, I have HOPE. We know how it all ends so therefore we don't live as if we have no hope, but one who understands that He is "the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. Revelation 22:13

Amen, my friend. When I studied the book of Daniel, it gave me such a peace about world events and political upheaval. I voiced similar thoughts on my blog.

He reigns!

Kay Arthur had the same message of hope for us in our video yesterday. We are finishing up Isaiah and she read a lot from Revelation. I have never really studied Revelation (I have read it, but not studied it). It was all pretty much way over my head, but at the end, she was very joyful and told us about the hope we have! So I'm trusting that and going to keep studying and praying for understanding.
