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?

Devotional

The answer of these men to this powerful king is stunning. Such faith and calm is a beacon to us who live under New Testament covenant of Christ’s very Life! An example of divine possibilities, a challenge to be possessed of a like faith. It even gives a hint of the Coming One, whose calm and surrender are beyond human capability. Sustained by God, such trust as these men had, is the standard, the call and the promise.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.”
Daniel 3:16 ESV

The word answer here means “to announce with a loud cry.” They had no personal need for the king to know their faith. They made no boast in themselves, no defense, no plea for mercy. They had only a sure testimony of ‘our God Whom we serve…’

Oh, to know our Lord for such a glorious witness in the darkness of evil’s reign!
