TEXT: JEREMIAH 33:1-3
1) Moreover the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying,
2) Thus saith the Lord the maker thereof, the Lord that formed it, to establish it; the Lord is his name;
3) Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
KEY VERSE: DEUTERONOMY 29:29
The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Nebuchadnezzar dreamed a dream. He wanted the revelation but he had even forgotten the dream itself. He could have asked God to remind him of the dream, but he didn't. Nebuchadnezzar, why are you asking your magicians and wise men? Why didn't you go to God directly? God is there for us. God is there for our peace. God is there for our safety. Why are you doing damage? Why are you struggling? Why are you worrying and fighting when God is there? Why don't you ask God for the revelation? When his guards began to kill the magicians and wise men, they looked for Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego to kill but there was a difference.
13) And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain. 14) Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon: 15) He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel. 16) Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation. 17) Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: 18) That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19) Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
What Nebuchadnezzar could not do by going to God, righteous Daniel did and solution followed immediately. That is the difference between the righteous and the unrighteous. Daniel said to himself, I know where I am going to; so he sought time from the king. Does God want you to die? Does God want your ministry to be terminated? Turn to God and ask God for the revelation, he will reveal it to you. Seek his face, He will answer you.
