Dear Church Family
This Sunday, and next week in our Daily Worship Devotions, with the Presidential election looming large, we consider a timely question: “Where is Your Hope?” In the end of the second chapter of Daniel, God shows us that, even if our present circumstances suggest otherwise, his Kingdom prevails and will endure. Like Nebuchadnezzar, this forces the question: “Where is Your Hope?” Biblically, hope isn’t just an idea or sentiment. Whatever we hope in – that’s what we worship, follow, and sacrifice for. The thing we hope in is the thing we trust and live for.
So, take some time to read the Daniel 2:24-49. As you do, especially consider and reflect on the following:
- Nebuchadnezzar’s response in verses 46-48. What is missing?
- If the Bible is true, what should we hope in – live for, trust in, and sacrifice for?
- Compared to the “important” things of this world, how might the apparent insignificance and irrelevance of the God’s Kingdom and his Church lead me to hope and invest more in the things of this world than the things of God?
