Bible Notes

Tuesday 3rd December

Reading: Daniel 2:24-28
[24] Then Daniel went to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to execute the wise men of Babylon, and said to him, “Do not execute the wise men of Babylon. Take me to the king, and I will interpret his dream for him.” [25] Arioch took Daniel to the king at once and said, “I have found a man among the exiles from Judah who can tell the king what his dream means.” [26] The king asked Daniel (also called Belteshazzar), “Are you able to tell me what I saw in my dream and interpret it?” [27] Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, [28] but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these:

Thought for Reflection: It’s dream time! Daniel is careful not to take credit for himself but to proclaim this wonderful truth – a statement still as relevant today – “there is a God in heaven……” That is what makes the difference for Daniel and for millions of people since. Our world today needs to know that there is a God in heaven who has come among us and makes a difference!

Prayer: Lord you are a great and mighty deliverer – help me to know you with us today.
