Daniel 1 to 3 Testing of our faith produces endurance so we are complete. When we need wisdom we should come believing and ask God just as Daniel and his three friends did.
Daniel believed God. He believed God’s heavenly windows are open 24/7, 365 days a year no matter where he was or what he was facing. He knew this truth: “God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.” Believing that principle, Daniel appealed two times; once to eat only vegetables and water and the second for time to pray for an answer to the king’s demands of “Tell me the dream!”
Many times, like Daniel, we say we believe, we make appeals and even have prayer meetings but our words seem to float off into eternity with no answers. But, God doesn’t work on our 24 hr. clock. He answers in His perfect time and often when we least expect it—sometimes, even in the middle of the night as He did for Daniel!
God brings tests into our life to test our faith and to reveal His power and His majesty to a world that does not honor Him. These young men faced tests with seemingly impossible odds yet God did just as Malachi said: I will open my windows and pour out my blessings upon you.
How about you? Do you trust God in the impossible?
