Determination - A Study in Daniel Deacon/Lay Leader Joshua Justice 15 November 2015
artist: Joshua Justice title: Determination - A Study In Daniel album: Daniel year: 2015 genre: Bible Study (id None) In the Babylonian world, the king was all things and yet a captured Jewish princeling becomes one of the most important leaders of the kingdom, and does it without losing either his sense of self, or his loyalty to Jehovah. Daniel is a study in calm determination as well as respect for authority. He set himself to keep his convictions and still meet the needs of his overlords by prayerfully approaching and making a proper appeal to those in charge. Daniel searched beyond the obvious to the root of Nebuchadnezzar's training demands which came against his Jewish upbringing to find the spirit of the training and find a way to live up to both his authority's needs and of God's law. In response, as with Joseph, God blessed him with favor in a difficult situation... and He will do the same for us, if we, like Daniel, dare to have a purpose firm and dare to make it known.
