Daniel Says to Worship Our God Who Rules

“This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.”Daniel 4:17, emphasis added

To the helm of the incredible empire of Babylon rose an incredible young man of God, Daniel. Have you ever considered what it must have been like to be prime minister to the greatest empire in the world in its time? There would be untold streams of decisions, endless meetings, countless conferences, lavish banquets, and clay tablet work (like our paperwork). And don’t forget the delays on the freeways in your chariot as well as the everyday needs of life such as going to the sandal shop, stopping to have new wheels put on the chariot, and tending to the needs of the horses.

Daniel was a very responsible man, committed, and most of all busyHow did he cope with life at the top? He knelt on his knees three times a day to pray, just as he always did. In the midst of his cabinet position in a worldwide empire, and all the pressures that came with such a position, Daniel faithfully prayed. Not just at a meal; no, he found a way to stop it all, go to a quiet, private chamber, kneel, and come into the presence of God in thanksgiving. When life is tough, when it seems like the bad guys are winning, remember there is a God in heaven who rules!

Having a God in heaven who is in charge should cause each of us to live with conviction. Daniel made up his mind that he would not defile himself (Daniel 1:8). Why? Because God wants His children to have standards of holiness in their lives.

Make a choice to live in hope: Through the testimonies of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel, we find living hope to worship our God of salvation, our God of repentance, our God of hope, our God of the new heart, and our God who rules.

Have confidence in Christ (past and future) because our God moves history along“the Most High rules in the kingdom of men” (Daniel 4:17). Because He reigns, it is better to read His Word than to depend upon the news media to interpret what is happening in the world. Then, when you read or hear the news, you will perceive God’s hand in it.

Once you really see God, nothing else can fully satisfy. Have you ever seen Him?
