God calls us to humble and pure servant leadership.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Daniel 5:5 - Suddenly, they saw the fingers of a human hand writing on the plaster wall of the king's palace, near the lampstand.
Read - Daniel 5
The temple and its contents had been set aside as holy yet this king ignored all that. For that, and maybe many other reasons God brought his kingdom to an end and Babylon is upended by the Medes and Persians. God seeks those who will honor Him and treat Him, along with all things His Word indicates, as holy. Let’s make sure we do that.
Lord, help me to know Your Word so I may better know You.
Read Galatians 6:7-8.
God spoke to the king but the king couldn’t understand and had to bring in a local expert (Daniel). Many in this world read or hear God’s Word yet still don’t Know Him because of lack of understanding. It may as well be in a foreign language. It is by hearing God’s Word that a person can begin to respond to the Gospel. Knowledge of His Word is granted so we may Love and obediently serve Him. Do you Know Him? Do you help others interpret God’s handwriting so they can too?
