In HIS Presence


Read: Daniel 2:1-49 

Meditation verse: 

“The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, “my decision is firm; if you do  not make known the dream to me, and its interpretation, you shall be cut in  pieces and your houses shall be made an ash heap” (Daniel 2:5).  

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream that left him troubled. Then he  sent for all the magicians, astrologers, and sorcerers; demanding that they tell  him the dream he had and then interpret it. What an impossible task; how could  anyone get into the king’s head to know what his dream? Of course, they told  the king that he had asked for a difficult thing, as there was no human being that  could do what he had requested. The king answered and said to the Chaldeans,  “my decision is firm; if you do not make known the dream to me, and its  interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces and your houses shall be made an ash  heap” (Daniel 2:5). Proverbs 21:1 says, “the king’s heart is in the hand of the  Lord, like the rivers of water, he turns it wherever He wishes”. To the human  mind, king Nebuchadnezzar’s request and punishment were cruel but God had  taken hold of his heart to set Daniel up for a promotion.  

God had blessed Daniel with an understanding in all visions and dreams and He  revealed the secret of the king’s dream to him in a night vision. Daniel revealed  and interpreted the dream to the king. “Then the king fell on his face, prostrate  before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense  to him… and he promoted Daniel and gave him many great gifts, and he made  him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief administrator over all  the wise men of Babylon” (Daniel 2:46-48). 

God specializes in working behind the scenes of our lives. Ecclesiastes 11:5 says,  “as you do not know what is the way of the wind, or how the bones grow in the  womb of her who is with child, so you do not know the works of god who makes  everything”. That situation you are going may seem very difficult right now, but  it might just be a set by God to get you to where He wants to be, which is a  higher realm. Instead of giving in to despair, ask Him to reveal any secret behind  the situation and give you understanding to accurately interpret the times you  are in. that way, you will not miss your season of visitation

*Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?*

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
