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?
(Reading Daniel 1:1-6 NASB)
Babylon’s king ordered that the best young men of Israel to be trained to serve in the king’s court including some of “the royal family and of the nobles.” They were chosen as “youth in whom was no defect, who were good looking, showing intelligence in every branch of wisdom, endowed with understanding and discerning knowledge.” Daniel was one of the youth who was chosen, probably at the age of 15.
This was the government of God ruling the heathen ruler and controlling his choices. God’s ordered plan to restore and return Israel began at the very beginning of her captivity!
