12 Reasons I Love the Book of Daniel

10 May
  1. It says a great deal about the End Times.
  2. Daniel’s example shows us how to live godly lives in the midst of great ungodliness — especially key for the End Times.
  3. It teaches us a lot about intercession and how radically God responds to it.
  4. It teaches us to trust in the sovereignty of God.
  5. It teaches us to fear God alone, not transient, mortal humans.
  6. It demonstrates that God is a deliverer and vindicator.
  7. It casts vision for a long-term journey in God (Daniel walked steadily with the Lord for more than seventy years).
  8. It gives us hope for the age and the kingdom to come.
  9. It trumpets the value of humility and the foolishness of pride.
  10. It confirms future prophecy with tons of historically fulfilled events.
  11. It’s the first place to call Jesus “Son of Man” — which was His favorite title for Himself.
  12. It will provoke you to fast and pray.

    You left out the coolest reason for loving the book: the cool song!

    “Oh no, what we gonna do?
    The King likes Daniel
    More than me and you…”

    ***’Cause he was praayyyyyin…… Praaaaaayyyyyyinnnnnnn….***

    Actually, my reason for loving Daniel is Daniel 2…

    “Blessed be the name of the Lord God who lives forever and ever,
    for wisdom and might are His.
    He changes the times and the seasons,
    He raises kings up and tears them down…” All that jazz…

    Our youth evangelism missions conference for 2009 has Daniel 1 as it’s theme. I just found out Thursday and then read your blog. Exciting.
