God Reveals Things Through Fasting and Prayer
Sunday February 4, 2018
Scripture: Daniel 10:1-9
Text: Daniel 10:7
Theme: God Reveals Things Through Fasting and Prayer
This passage describes a vision that Daniel had in response to his fervent prayer for the Jews who had returned to the promised land. It shows how demonic forces were trying to prevent his prayer from being answered so the Jews could not fulfill their God-given purpose: to be the channel through whom God would send His Holy Word and the Messiah into the world.
This is the first of three chapters that deal with Daniel’s final vision. The present chapter takes readers behind the scenes of world history to reveal the cosmic spiritual forces that seek to wreak havoc on the people of the earth, particularly believers.
1. Daniel’s prayer and mourning prior to the vision: stresses the need to pray and fast (10:1-3).
2. Daniel’s encounter with an awesome being: stresses the need to be humble and surrendered to Christ (10:4-9)
I pray that you will come and visit with us this Sunday to hear how God can move in your life.
May God continue to bless you richly.
