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?
If you don’t have reverence and fear of God, then you do not believe He truly IS God! At root, all lawlessness of humanity is the absence of the fear of God, who holds all consequences in His sovereign hand.
What do you fear? Who evokes fear in you? There will be your bowing and giving in…and that is worship. What you fear, you worship. Who you fear controls you, and control is worship.
In an astonishing courage that seems utterly calm, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stood up, spoke up right to the very face of this king who seemed to hold absolute power of life and death. But he didn’t! The Famous Three knew the One Who did hold all power over life and Who ruled rulers. And they feared only Him. Nebuchadnezzar and his furnace were nothing compared to their Most High God!
Let not your heart envy sinners but continue in the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord all the day long. For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward] and your hope and expectation will not be cut off.
Proverbs 23:17-18 AMPC
