Bold as Lions: The Writing on the Wall

In Daniel chapter 5, we read that King Belshazzar, like his grandfather King Nebuchadnezzar, turns to Daniel to interpret the mysterious writing on the wall that appears during his lavish party. Belshazzar offers Daniel wealth, possessions, power and influence, revealing those things the king considers most significant and valuable. Daniel responds that the king has weighed the wrong things and has come up short. What about us? When God weighs us, what is He measuring? How can we be sure that we will “tip the scales?” The answer lies in humility and trust in Christ’s perfect fulfillment of the law’s requirements.

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?
