After reading and re-reading the book of Daniel and thinking about Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and their lives, I am awestruck by the relevance this book in God’s Word has for us today.
Daniel’s life and the God he served were in direct conflict with the government and rulers he found his life subject to.
Matt. 26:36-46 and Luke 22:41-44
As I am sitting in my quiet place watching it lightly snow, I find the Lord speaking to me about the word “separation.” It is hard being separated from my family, friends, church family, the sweet lady at Wal-Mart that I enjoy talking to or just the face-to-face contact with people I so miss! On Saturday, preparing for Easter service, a precious gal whom I usually hug looked at me from a distance and said “air hug.”
