[When Daniel was alarmed by his visions of the future, he approached one of those standing by him in his visions. The presence told Daniel:] "But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever — yes, for ever and ever."Daniel 7:18 - [NIV]

Thoughts on Today's Verse

The Kingdom will belong to God's saints, his children, the followers of Jesus, and the people of the Most High (Daniel 7:27)... FOREVER! The Kingdom will belong to us. The Son of Man will be with us (Daniel 7:13), and the Kingdom will be ours, forever... and ever... and ever. Praise God for his promises, his grace, and his faithfulness. Because of God's promises and Jesus' triumph over sin, death, and hell, our future is secure, no matter how frightening that future may appear from our limited human perspective!

My Prayer

Almighty God Most High, I look forward to the day that your Kingdom rules in power and your will is done on this earth as it is in heaven. Thank you for your promises to us and for giving your children a Kingdom that cannot be shaken (Hebrews 12:28). Bless me, O God, as I seek to live my life each day in reverence and awe at your awesome holiness and grace while trusting in the promises of my future in Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
