Bible In One Year-Day 228 (Friday, August 16, 2013)
Commentary: Daniel7-9. Daniel saw a troubling vision in the dream. In the dream, he was troubled and decided to ask questions. He got a good angelic response in the dream; our God is not an author of confusion. The lesson remains that Daniel kept the dream within himself even though he was troubled.
Daniel 7:28 “Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.”
How much of secrets could you keep for the Lord? The spirit of Daniel is that spirit that talks only when God talks and this is why the bible called the spirit “an excellent spirit”. Compared with Joseph, Daniel exhibited great deal of maturity in handling divine information. Many cannot do this and thus are finding it difficult to receive deep revelations in the dream. It is good for us to be prophets, but if the mouth is loose, such becomes a parrot. Prophets talk only when God ask them to talk and not when they want to show that they are prophets of God. All these are based on the fear of the Lord.
Psalms 25:14 “The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.”
Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Daniel10-12. Keep the fire of burning and alive.
