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?
Any crisis is solved by faith. Every problem, every need is a problem that needs only faith. “The just shall LIVE by faith.” Daniel demonstrates this. For every crisis, Daniel went away to listen to the Most High.
Daniel’s bread of life was ‘every word that came from the mouth of God.’ He literally clung to the voice of God, and because he heard, he lived in astonishing triumph through the judgment of God under Nebuchadnezzar.
Romans 10:17 ESV
Faith comes by hearing and hearing from the word of Christ.
So faith comes by hearing [what is told] and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).
So the work of ‘believing in the Son whom God has sent’ (John 6:29) is the work of listening – not striving, trying, grasping, and especially not reasoning. The work of listening is the way to faith, and it is no small work!
