About Rule and Reign Like Daniel Series
Daniel believed in God as Ruler, so he brought Heaven’s Rule into his earthly government and heathen captors. Do you rule and reign like Daniel did?
Daniel was divinely gifted in understanding visions and dreams (Dan. 1:17). He was prepared beforehand for his life crisis. Life is step by step, this one day by one day. It is essential to live in the little places, to be faithful in small things. Otherwise we perish in the big test, not having passed the small test. Surrender today prepares for a tomorrow that can’t be imagined. Our preparation by the Most High is perfect if we fit into its order.
Nebuchadnezzar’s unreasonable demand was that not only should his dream be interpreted, it should be known without his telling. The penalty of failure was death. Such was impossible to the wise men of Babylon and their idols of earth. But not to Daniel’s God in heaven. This was God’s sovereign setup, to distinguish Daniel and promote him to the ‘large things.’
So Daniel went in and requested of the king that he would give him time, in order that he might declare the interpretation to the king.
