The Joy of Unit-Reading #48 (the Book of Daniel)

03 May

How’s it going with your unit-reading?  This has been an exercise over the last few months to read at one sitting (= “unit-read”) all 65 of the 66 books of the Bible (the book of Psalms is not meant to be unit-read).  Today’s book is the Old Testament prophet Daniel.  Here are some of my notes:

There is much that I don’t understand about the 2nd half of Daniel’s book!  But here’s my one takeaway:

The true God refuses to share His glory with the “gods” of the nations!  He alone is supreme and worthy of my praise — and He honors His people when they repent and turn to Him.

My prayer for today:  “O God of Daniel, thank You for how You used him and the three Jewish young men to testify of Your greatness.  Help me to stand strong for You, regardless of circumstances!  And give me opportunities to ‘lead many to righteousness.’  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”
