Today's headline was "This year's election could be the ugliest and most divisive race in history." ......you think? If you are like me and get a little nauseas when you think of going to the poll in November, the Old Testament prophet Daniel offers us a soothing balm.
Daniel was living as a refugee in a foreign land. He was a leader who outlasted 3 kings and was counselor and advisor to all. When he was asked to not only interpret the king's dream but come up with the dream itself, he turned to God, the revealer of all mysteries. In a perilously dangerous political moment, God powerfully spoke to Daniel and he humbly gave all glory and praise to God. These words speak to me deeply and resonate with our current political climate. Read Daniel's words and let the truth soothe your worried soul today!
He said,“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.
He reveals deep and mysterious things
and knows what lies hidden in darkness,
though he is surrounded by light.
I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors
