The Invisible War (Part 2)
Bible Text: Danile 10:1-11:1 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: Daniel, The Invisible War
1. When we become active for the Lord, especially in prayer, we energize the enemy. Speaking of Daniel 10, Dr. Gleason Archer writes: “These verses give us a fascinating insight into the supernatural forces involved when a believer engages in protracted and earnest prayer.” “…mighty forces are unleashed when we really devote ourselves to intercession before the throne of grace.”
2. Daniel was called “highly esteemed” in 10:11 (see also 9:23; 10:19). Literally, Daniel was precious to God. This description showed how much God loves and cares for His own. We who are on the other side of the cross should understand God’s great love and care for us even greater than Daniel did. Do we take God’s love for granted? Do we take our position for granted? Sometimes trials can cloud God’s love and care for us making us question that love.
3. The other side of the coin is that Daniel was wholly committed to God. He held back nothing.
