Monday – Daniel 9:1-27 (esp. vss. 20-27)
Read Daniel 9:20-27. In light of Daniel’s prayer (vss. 1-19) do you see any hope in the tough times?
As Daniel meditates on “the word of the Lord” as written in the prophet Jeremiah (Daniel 9:2) it leads him to pray. Why? What is the application for your life?
Daniel’s prayer is answered! Another encouragement to pray. Even in the toughest of times, no matter how things look, we are to pray. How can you apply this to your prayer life?
Daniel hears that the good news is certain but that the timetable is such that the future of “everlasting righteousness” is a long way off. Clearly God’s timing is different than ours. How does this apply to the church of today?
Until we are with Jesus in heaven, this life will include trials, tribulations, afflictions and persecutions. How does looking to Jesus in His word and prayer help us in persevering under these things?
The only one who puts an end to sin, atones for all iniquity, rings in everlasting righteousness and puts all things in their proper perspective is the Lord Jesus Christ. How does that glorious truth affect your daily life and witness?
