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?
The appearance of God with you IS the miraculous victory. God’s eye is on you in every place, but His presence with you is quite another matter. The Lord doesn’t need to put the fire out. You only need the presence of God with you where you go, into your fire of trial, and you sail through it – unburnt and unscorched!
The fire had not the smallest effect or the least power over the three BECAUSE of the presence of the Lord with them. Where they went, He went…in Person. Christ Himself appeared inside the furnace!
Moses was known and favored by God. He asked to know God’s ways “to find favor in His sight.” God’s answer to that request was:
My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.
Reading Exodus 33:12-19
Moses knew God’s vivid presence was the necessity for leaving Sinai and going on to the Promised Land.
“If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here.”
The presence of the Lord is something beyond the voice of the Lord. God’s manifest presence is the overthrow of kings, but there are conditions for having His manifest presence.
