The message is wake up, get ready and prepare! Sitting around doing nothing is not an option!
In God’s amazing love to his people, he is utterly faithful. And when his people return to him, he faithfully and freely forgives them and restores them to new life and new relationships.
The more we empty ourselves to God, the more He fills us. Worship is a continuous offering to God of all that we have and all that we are. It is giving ourselves utterly and completely to God, and being willing for him to direct our lives however he sees fit.
When we lack knowledge of God, we can not develop a relationship with Him. Our relationships are built upon the foundation of knowledge.
We keep thinking that God only loves good people, but God loves sinners. He pursues them like he asked Hosea to pursue Gomer.
Daniel lived his life for an audience of one – his Lord. He was humble before God. And he recognized that God alone could give him wisdom and insight, and so he submitted his life to him.
