The Book of Daniel. God is still in control. It can be hard to believe this when we watch the news around us, but he is still on the throne. We see this important theme in the book of Daniel. Young men are taken away to be indoctrinated by the king who will utterly destroy their home. God’s people are thrown into a fiery furnace and a lion’s den. We see visions of horrifying beasts rising out of the ocean. Those were scary days….like today. And so we learn how to trust the One who is in control, we learn to live by faith in hostile territory, and we learn to thrive in the darkest of days. Things seem to be spiraling into chaos, but keep calm - God is still in control..
