Faithful to the End (Daniel 1-3)

20 Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
    to whom belong wisdom and might, Daniel 2:20

I was up very early this morning to prepare for a great day in the Lord. I was at the office by 5:15 AM. I sat down to read this text before I was to lead our Men’s Bible Study Time. Immediately I was drawn to the word FAITH. This word always comes up in these chapters of Daniel. Consider the following:

  • Daniel one reveals to us the faith of Daniel along with his companions to trust in God’s directions instead of mens.
  • Daniel two reveals to us the faith of Daniel in believing God is the one who knows all things.
  • Daniel three reveals to us the faith of Daniels three companions who were willing to stand in the fire for their faith in God.

Oh, what great faith these brothers possessed.

But, there is greater FAITH to see in these chapters. Look closely at the faithfulness of God. Consider the following:

  • God was faithful in positioning His servants in positions of favor and influence in a foreign land.
  • God was faithful in providing health and divine wisdom before a lost nation of people.
  • God was faithful to be the fourth man in the fire.

On this Monday, I tell you: God is faithful to the end of every matter in life. Knowing this, I can have peaceful faith in knowing that God will be faithful to the end of what I am in the middle of today. Knowing this, I can have wisdom to see how to get through what I am about to go into today. Knowing this, I will be thankful as I come out of whatever I am in.

Here is what Daniel knew about God:

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
    to whom belong wisdom and might.
21 He changes times and seasons;
    he removes kings and sets up kings;
he gives wisdom to the wise
    and knowledge to those who have understanding;
22 he reveals deep and hidden things;
    he knows what is in the darkness,
    and the light dwells with him.
23 To you, O God of my fathers,
    I give thanks and praise,
for you have given me wisdom and might,
    and have now made known to me what we asked of you,
    for you have made known to us the king’s matter.

2 questions:

  1. What have you learned about God today?
  2. How can these lessons build your faith in Him?
