Daniel 7:11-12 NIV
“Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire.  (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.)
As the Ancient of Days takes the throne, the final beast is slain. He sits in judgement, greater and higher than any of the powers that strive for dominion on earth. Nothing can hold sway without his allowing it to do so.
In the midst of the turmoil of life, find confidence in knowing that God reigns with compassion and justice – ultimately all will be well! Father, knowing you gives us confidence to stand.
