Daniel Prayed and He Was Strengthened in His Weakness

And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb.
And behold, one like the similitude of the sons of men touched my lips: then I opened my mouth, and spake, and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength.
For how the servant of this my lord can talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.
Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me.
And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. Daniel 10:15-19 KJV

The Book of Daniel is Ostensibly “an account of the activities and visions of Daniel, it combines a prophecy of history with an eschatology (a portrayal of end times) both cosmic in scope and political in focus, and its message is that just as the God of Israel saves Daniel from his enemies, so he would save all Israel in their present oppression.

Daniel is one of the few Bible books that takes place during a period of judgement and in a foreign nation. Whether it is in the contrast between the culture’s idol worship and Daniel’s faithful purity or in the account of the arrogant Nebuchadnezzar and his humbling encounter with God, the pagan backdrop in Daniel makes the Lord’s power shine through in a magnificent and majestic way and stands out in Scripture. The Book of Daniel makes it clear that the true God is the supreme ruler over heaven and earth, even when all seems lost, and the consequences of sin seem overwhelming.


HAVE A BLESSED DAY
