REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: Daniel 2:16-24 //
16 At this, Daniel went into the king and asked for time, so that he might interpret the dream for him.
17 Then Daniel returned to his house and explained the matter to his friends Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. 18 He urged them to plead for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery so that he and his friends might not be executed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven 20 and said:
“Praise be to the name of God forever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
21 He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.
23 I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors:
You have given me wisdom and power,
you have made known to me what we asked of you,
you have made known to us the dream of the king.”
One of the things that will help you to discover the rare things is right companions. Daniel sought for the fellowship of his three friends in the presence of God. If you don’t know how to network with God and with others in intercession there may not be divine intervention. They prayed to God of heaven and he answered by revealing the secret to Daniel. They went before God so that they can appear before the king. There are two ‘before’ in the passage, before God first before standing before the king. This is a principle of God.
Prayer: Pray for right company of men.
