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?
My goal in the recent devotions has been to bring forth Christ as our foundation, security and source in a world that is shaking. The other day, I just opened at random a writing by T. Austin-Sparks, and his subject was Christ the Foundation and the Rock! I was amazed at this confirmation from the Lord and I wanted to share some of Sparks’ insights. He presents the great stability of Christ in such a clear way.
From Features of Zion by T. Austin-Sparks, “The Stability of Christ the Foundation”:
“Oh, how steady He was; how quiet, how confident, how assured, how unmoved, how imperturbable was the Lord when He was here. Nothing moved Him, nothing shook Him, nothing made Him waver. He quietly, steadily, in composure, faced every onrush of adverse forces from earth and from hell. Indeed, He was a rock. With the fast gathering storm, the nature of which He knew perfectly, about to break upon them all, the most terrible storm in history, forces of hell working through every earthly means, right on the edge of it He said, ‘Let not your heart be troubled’ (John 14:1). He knew the trouble that was coming to Him and to them. ‘Let not your heart be troubled.’
“Yes, that is the Lord Jesus. Stability!”
