First, the line in the Daily Walk section that says we probably know more about Daniel’s visions than he did. See, we think we know more than Daniel, but I am convinced we, the church universal, know less than Daniel because we think it is past to us or because we have Revelation to help us unpack Daniel. If it is still a future vision for us like it was for Daniel, then we know just as much as he did, which is God wins in the future. We as the church need to be like Daniel and come humbly before God and understand it is a mystery. God is telling us the future so that we know He wins and is in total control. God does not tell us the future so we can figure it out, because if we figured it out, we would not need faith.
Second, the bold line under the daily walk that states that God’s prophecy has practical implications for today. This line is spot on. Every single word and truth from God has practical use for us each day as the children of the King. In the case of Daniel and all his prophet visions, the practical use is to give us knowledge that God is in complete control, has the outcome already decided, and will preserve His children to the end so that they cannot fail eternally. This knowledge should then give us hope. It should place in us a joy knowing that this life is temporal and we, if we align with God will succeed. This knowledge should also make us risk takers knowing that God controls all the outcomes and the worst that can happen to us is a physical death. So my pray for each of us as we finished reading through Daniel is to find the hope and joy knowing the outcome and that God gave us the knowledge of His designed end.
