An impossible request.
The king has a dream. He is disturbed by the dream and the fact that he does not fully understand the meaning. In desperation, he demands the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers of the kingdom first tell him what his dream was about, then tell him the meaning. If they fail, they will be put to death. They beg the king just to tell them the dream first and they assure him that they will then tell him the meaning.
The king won’t be moved.
The enchanters speak it… “No one on earth can tell you the dream…”
They say it…the impossible…the truth. No one on earth.
Daniel handled the situation with wisdom and discretion. He went before the king. Asked for more time.
You see, Daniel knew that God could reveal the secret. Daniel urged his friends to ASK GOD. And that night, the meaning of the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision. God revealed…lives were saved. Miraculous revelation. A servant of the most high God, determined. Daniel received the revelation from the KING OF ALL KINGS. He went back to the earthly King.
How many IMPOSSIBLE requests have we laid before God?
How many times have we lacked vision…understanding…And we have laid it all down before the King. Asking Him to reveal TRUTH.
Our God is God of the IMPOSSIBLE. Supernatural, all seeing, all powerful, all knowing. Our God is more than able to speak to us and through us. He is able to bring revelation and truth to every situation and give us the wisdom and discretion we need.
Oh Father, you are amazing! All powerful, God of the impossible. Over and over again you show yourself to be so far beyond our understanding. Many times I lack wisdom and understanding. I seek you. I press into you. I pray that during this fast you will continue to teach me, guide me, reveal your heart to me. Give me wisdom and revelation for my family. Let your truth and your revelation be all we seek. We lay our requests before you. Some seem impossible on this earth…but not to you…Creator of all…we trust you and look to you in all things. Amen.
