[The Glory Unveiled ]
In the first year of his (Darius son of Xerxes) reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. ( Daniel 9:2 )
The word of God carries within it the knowledge that represents our freedom. Some Israelites had been exiled from their home country, and sent to Babylon. After a long time, some begun to find a new home in the foreign land. They had almost forgotten that they had come from another place. While others diligently waited for the deliverance of the Lord. And yet that deliverance seem to be forever away from them. After some years, Daniel decided to refer to the scriptures for solution. He found out that God had said something to them on the matter: their predicament was for a period of seventy years. But did you know that if they had spent a little over the seventy years it would have been their doing? [Some extra biblical materials suggest it was over seventy years]. Now what does that mean to us today? God is telling us today to discover for ourselves His promises and plans for us in the Scriptures and act accordingly. The solution or freedom we seek is only guaranteed in the confines of God’s Word. But we cannot know it unless we discover it and act by them. Like Daniel, let us go back to the scriptures to discover what God is saying about our current circumstances and current world events.
Prayer_Bead: Jehovah God, my Lord and King, teach me your statutes and your precepts. Order my steps in your word. Help me to discover your plans for me in your word.
