As we jump back into chapter 2, the suspense has been building. No Babylonian wise-men can interpret Nebuchadnezzar's dream. As such, they’re all slated to be executed. But Daniel and his 3 teenage friends have prayed to the one true God and He has heard their prayers and miraculously given Daniel insight into the dream of a tyrant. As Daniel reveals the meaning of the dream to the most powerful man on earth, we get some crucial take-home truths as modern day followers of Jesus. Firstly, unlike the Babylonian gods, our God is the sovereign One. He knows all things and can do all things. Secondly, we see that faithfulness to God is always rewarded, either in this life or the one to come. Lastly, we can’t miss that this was written to encourage God’s people in exile. You may feel like you’re losing in life right now, but if you’re in Christ, the story ends with you winning with King Jesus. That reality ought to be a life-giving wind in our sails as we journey through life!
