Daniel 7:18 – Verse of the Day 2/25/15
What would you say if someone told you that you would inherit a kingdom? Can you imagine how this would change your life? How would it change the things you do and your enjoyment of life? What if someone told you that you would receive a kingdom that would last forever and ever.
This verse comes at the end of Daniel’s famous dream about four beasts that represent four earthly kingdoms. The point is that earthly kingdoms come and go, but the Kingdom of God will last forever. Therefore, as saints of the Most High we can take comfort that no matter what happens on this earth, we will live eternally with the only King who is perfectly just, righteous, and loving.
The hope that we have as Christians is a great comfort. By faith we have already entered into the Kingdom of God, and although we continue to be citizens of our earthly countries our true and eternal citizenship is in heaven. Not only should we take comfort from this future reality, but we should allow it to inspire us to live more fruitfully in the here and now. Spend some time in prayer asking God to help you believe His eternal promises in order to better serve Him in your present life.
