When King Nebuchadnezzar had a frightful dream and searched all Babylon for its interpretation, the prophet Daniel looked to God for wisdom and understanding. For only through God comes true revelation of the secret things.
“Daniel answered and said:
‘Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
to whom belong wisdom and might.
He changes times and seasons;
he removes kings and sets up kings;
he gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to those who have understanding;
he reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what is in the darkness,
and the light dwells with him.
To you, O God of my fathers,
I give thanks and praise,
for you have given me wisdom and might,
and have now made known to me what we asked of you,
for you have made known to us the king’s matter.’”
All wisdom and understanding comes from God, who created all things, made all things through His son Jesus, and imbued the church with true knowledge. That which is not known, is known through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Give thanks and praise to God our Father, who has revealed His truth to us by His Spirit. We have knowledge of Christ being our salvation, our redeemer, and the One who stood in our place, dying on the cross for our sins.
Blessed is God’s name forever, who has the power to change times and seasons, and to set up and remove governments for His purpose. His salvation is from everlasting to everlasting.
Blessed be His name. Seek wisdom from God.
