Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional November 21 2020 – The Attitude of Gratitude: A Prayer of Confidence
I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers; You have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of You, for You have made known to us the king’s demand.
Recommended Reading: Daniel 2:20-23
Daniel lived in a pagan land ruled by a ruthless king. But when that king had a troubling dream, Daniel asked God for wisdom, and the Lord gave him its interpretation. Daniel exalted in thanksgiving. In our own days of troubling world events, let’s thank God He’s still in control.
Dear Lord, the times are in Your hands and so are we. You warned that perilous times would come in the Last Days, but You also told us the Last Days would prepare for the return of Christ. We’re apt to be troubled by politics, upset by elections, and wary of rulers. But You, O Lord, direct the affairs of history; and if the prophet Daniel could praise You in Babylon, we can praise You in our modern world. Thank You for being on Your throne. The rulers of this world with their power and pride are no match for Your sovereign rule.
More secret than diplomacy, deeper than the investigations of the wise, and mightier than all the kingly power, is the providence of God.
