Daniel Fast Day 13

Daniel Fast Day 13
March 19
Reading: Daniel 2:19-21
“That night the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven.” (v 19 New Living Translation)
God answered the prayers of Daniel and his friends. The answer came in a vision at night. Maybe in a dream?
Daniel responded in praise and worship:
Praise the name of God forever and ever, 
for he has all wisdom and power. 
He controls the course of world events; 
he removes kings and sets up other kings. 
He gives wisdom to the wise 
and knowledge to the scholars. (vs 20-21 nlt)

How is God at work in what is happening in Syria and Ukraine, in the Sudan and here in China? Sometimes it seems things are out of control, that evil and destructive forces are winning. Often it is only later that we are able to see how God has worked in spite of selfish and evil decisions and actions to bring about something good.

“He changes the seasons and guides history” (v 21 msg). Our times, and our fasting, are in his hand. In every situation God is working for our good (Rom 8:28).

God, as I begin this 13th day of the Daniel Fast, I rejoice in your power and goodness. I trust you to work for the good of people in the Ukraine and here in Shanghai. I open my spirit to your Spirit, trusting you to shape my thoughts and words, my attitudes and actions, my work, relationships and play throughout this day.
