Then Arioch hurriedly brought Daniel before the king and said this to him: “I have found a man among the exiles of Judah who can explain to the king the interpretation [of the dream].” The king said to Daniel, whose [Babylonian] name was Belteshazzar, “Are you able to reveal to me the [content of the] dream which I have seen and its interpretation?” Daniel answered the king and said, “Regarding the mystery about which the king has inquired, neither the wise men, enchanters, magicians, nor astrologers are able to answer the king, but there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will take place in the latter days (end of days). This was your dream and the vision [that appeared] in your mind while on your bed. Dan. 2:25-28
When danger looms and there seems to be no way of escape, people often resort to worrying and panicking. But this approach to problem solving rarely produces positive results. Daniel and his Hebrew brothers found themselves in a very tight corner when the king of Babylon decreed that all his special advisers would be killed for not telling him his dream and the interpretation to the dream. Instead of worrying like the others, Daniel took the matter to God in prayer. God revealed to him the king’s dream and its interpretation also.
Daniel sought audience with the king and made the following pronouncement before him, “Regarding the mystery about which the king has inquired, neither the wise men, enchanters, magicians, nor astrologers are able to answer the king, but there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will take place in the latter days (end of days). This was your dream and the vision [that appeared] in your mind while on your bed.” (Daniel 2:27-28).
Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God personified. When you have Him inside you, you have knowledge of the past, the present and the future incubating inside you- But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God [revealing His plan of salvation], and righteousness [making us acceptable to God], and sanctification [making us holy and setting us apart for God], and redemption [providing our ransom from the penalty for sin]. 1 Cor. 1:30
We are surrounded with myriads of problems and challenges seeking for solution in our daily lives. These problems require the engagement and deployment of the Spirit within us. You can only bring this knowledge out when you make a demand like Daniel did. Don’t let the issues of life overwhelm you. Tap from the wisdom that resides inside you and be a solution to your world.
Jesus in me is the everlasting fountain of wisdom and understanding. Following Him, I will never go astray.
Father I thank you for the great treasure you have deposited in this earthen vessel. I know all things because He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world. Lord I engage the Spirit of wisdom and receive solution to the challenges in my life and sphere of influence in Jesus’ name.
