Daniel 2:19

Unto The Lord

At this point in his life, King Nebuchadnezzar was anything but a believer in the LORD God of Israel. He overthrew Israel, sacked the temple, and took many people away into captivity. Among those taken captive was a man named Daniel. The king chose the choicest captives to train to serve in his court. Daniel was among those so privileged.

Daniel ended up working a long time in the courts of those who opposed God. Perhaps you can relate to this. Daniel did not compromise his faith in any manner and was therefore both well-respected and targeted by those around him.

In the second chapter of Daniel, the servant of the Most High God asked the LORD to explain to him a dream the king had, as well as the interpretation thereof. The LORD answered, and the dream and its interpretation were amazing.

Did you notice the LORD answered a request to make something known to the king of the country that destroyed His temple? Many today would presume that God not answer - and maybe send a curse instead. Such was not the case.

The LORD desires that all people know Him. He often chooses to reveal Himself through the lives of those that are already saved. In other words, His plan may be to use you to bless those that are violently opposed to Him and His ways.

Faithfully execute the assignments you are given, provided they do not cause you or others to sin. By working as unto the Lord (Colossians 3:23-24), you become a great witness. Be prepared to answer the questions about your faith that they will certainly ask. (1 Peter 3:15) (VAL)
