2019 is almost gone! It could’ve been a great year filled with exciting times and things to celebrate, or a tough year that you want to forget. Daniel understood the extremes of both of these realities and still writes:
God knows all, does all: He changes the seasons and guides history, He raises up kings and also brings them down, he provides both intelligence and discernment (Daniel 2:21)
Regardless of how it seemed like he was doing, Daniel had a rock-solid understanding of God’s role in the world and in his life. It’s a ‘view from above’ that makes things clear.
