Detach from the World....
The book of Daniel is divided into two sections: the first half of the book provides a historical account and the second half is prophetic. The theme throughout is God’s sovereignty and power over all nations and powers. Yahweh is the one true God. All other gods are merely idols.
Thursday April 30: Daniel 2
“With the all-powerful God nothing is impossible.” This was Daniel’s reply to King Nebuchadnezzar in verses 27-30. Wisdom and power belong to our God (v.20) but He freely gives to us because of His mercy (v.18). Before you go too much further today ask God to enable you to make Him known and intercede for the lost in this city.
Deeper Study: Compare Daniel 2 with Genesis 41 the story of Joseph and Pharaoh
The reason to detach from the world is to attach to God. Be desperate for His Spirit today.
