“In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.” Daniel 9:2
The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Word of God is life-giving and active; it is the light that lights up all men(John 1: 1-4). However, many believers today either ignore it or do not apply their heart to understand its effect. The word of God has creative ability and nothing was created without it. The question is whether we can see this light in the Word!
Looking at our scriptural text, it shows us how Daniel was able to see by revelation, the freedom of the Israelites, by reading the Word. He then went ahead to present it to God in prayer and fasting, thereby obtaining victory!
This applies greatly to every believer today; much has been written about our destiny and the victory that God has prepared for you in this world, and you can find it in the Word! Faith comes by the Word, bringing us into the awareness of our victory and what we ought to do to remain victorious (Rom 10: 17).
You may be going through some setbacks and challenges, but that doesn’t change what God has written concerning you! Refuse to dwell in self-pity, rather look to the scriptures and find what the Word has to say about your situation; then war with the light you have found in prayer! With your faith stirred up, your victory irresistible. these is why you need to see beyond the letters. Glory to God.
