Bold as Lions: The Dream

In Daniel chapter 2 we see God using Daniel to interpret King Nebuchadnezzar's dream, which results in Daniel being placed in an incredible place of influence. Daniel boldly volunteered to interpret the dream because of his strong sense of trust in God and his recognition that God is the source of wisdom. Daniel did not take credit for the interpretation. Instead he praised God for the answered prayer and acknowledged before the king that God had revealed the dream and its meaning. We too can have biblical boldness by: (1) trusting God's plan, not our own; (2) fearing God, not man; and (3) giving God the Glory from our victories.

From Series: "Bold as Lions: The Book of Daniel"

This series explores the narrative of the unlikely hero, Daniel. Even though God's people are in exile because of their unrepentance, the God of Abraham, Jacob and Issac has not given up on them. God uses Daniel and his friends to: (1) Embolden us to stand firm in the face of opposition, especially when the deck is stacked against us; (2) Give hope to His representatives that God is still sovereign over the affairs of the world and will strategically place us to be people of influence; and (3) Reveal that God sovereignly uses powerful kings and kingdoms in his cosmic plans to bring justice and His eternal kingdom. Will we be bold as lions and trust in God's sovereign plan through trouble?
