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?
When evil rules, the Church rises. God’s intended goal of crisis is our utter dependence on Him, that He might show Himself strong on behalf of those whose “heart is completely His” (2 Chron. 16:9).
The heart that belongs to Him is the heart that has no other source or hope or power. And! No other affection. Daniel took the problem to the other three who constituted a tiny ‘Church’ in this captivity and they began to pray.
In the humility of seeking God as ones in critical need, this was their prayer:
So that they would desire and request mercy of the God of heaven, concerning this secret, that Daniel and his companions should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
Daniel 2:18 AMP
