A Glimpse of Glory
Read Daniel 5:1 through 7:28
When people look at the world, it is easy to become discouraged. Stories of war, devastating natural disasters, heartbreaking disease, and the general moral decay of humanity fill the airwaves. Even within the walls of the church one can become disheartened by the regular assault of the enemy. Yet, in the midst of the darkness, Christians still have hope.
“He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed” (Daniel 7:14).
Through the Holy Spirit, Daniel was given great insight into the last days. Those prophecies told of difficult days that would bring heartbreak, devastation, and persecution against the people of God.
However, the end of the story is one of ultimate victory for the people of God. Jesus will conquer the enemy and will reign for all eternity. Rest securely in the knowledge that God is supreme and in the end He will be victorious!
