Bible Verse of the Day

“I [Darius King of Persia] issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel. For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end. He rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.” —Daniel 6:26-27

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

If a foreign King in the days of the Old Testament can recognize how grand and glorious our God is, surely those of us who have received his grace through Jesus can rejoice in him and praise him! Our God IS the living God and does endure forever. He has brought us into his Kingdom, which can never be destroyed or shaken. Our God, the Lord Almighty, rescues and saves. He does signs and wonders to bring his deliverance to his people and share his grace with those who do not yet know him.


My Prayer…

Father God, you are glorious and awesome. Your rule is true, righteous, and eternal. You keep your promises and generously send forth your blessings. You alone are truly holy, awesome in your splendor and might. I praise you and thank you in the name of Jesus, my Lord. Amen.

  1. Darius fully realized the power of Daniel’s God, the only true God! Knowing this, I am sure he had an all new respect and reverence for God! And so should we! This passage in Psalms is one of my favorites on serving God with a reverential fear:
    Psalm 2:11-12
    Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling…..Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.

    As God’s children we are to have a reverential fear towards God. This is not that we are to be “afraid” of God, but it is speaking of the highest respect that we are to have and show to Him.
    God created us to serve, worship, and love Him. He promises that we will be blessed and have protection when we take our refuge in Him!

    To serve the Lord simply means to seek His will each day and then follow it. Many times this will mean abandoning our own will. God always knows what is the very best for us because He made us. He knit us together in our mother’s womb with love and care. Surely we can serve our Father God with devotion and with a joyful attitude after knowing this! The world already knows so much sadness and gloom, but we who know Christ have the joyous light of Him inside us through the Holy Spirit. We can be an example to the unsaved around us each day of the true and lasting joy that only comes through Jesus Christ in us!

    The last part of the passage says that we will be blessed when we take refuge in Him. When trouble comes your way where do you seek refuge, where do I? If it is anywhere but in Christ, there will be no true and lasting refuge and peace for us. But oh, when we go to Him and trust Him with our problems, He takes care of everything and everyone that needs taking care of. He protects and guides us through the issues and brings us to the other side of our turmoil rejoicing in Him!

    Thank You Father God for Your perfect love for and faithfulness to me. I do not deserve Your love Abba, but I am so thankful that you do. Help me to serve you with great enthusiasm each day and to show the joy of Christ to all I meet, Amen!
