Daniel 2:16-18 - Turn Problems Into Prayers.
Daniel 2:16-18 (NLT) Daniel went at once to
see the king and requested more time to tell the
king what the dream meant. Then Daniel went home
and told his friends Hananiah, Mishael, and
Azariah what had happened. He urged them to ask the
God of heaven to show them his mercy by telling
them the secret, so they would not be executed
along with the other wise men of Babylon.
When youre asked to do something
thats impossible, you start by refusing to panic
and by getting all the facts. Then, you ask for
Why? Because your biggest temptation in
the midst of crisis is to be impulsive. Youre
typically not thinking rationally. Youre thinking
emotionally. You want to make a quick decision.
But its more important to make the
right decision than a fast decision.
A wrong decision is wrong, no matter how
quickly you make it. So step back, take a deep
breath, calm down, and talk to God.
Daniel did this when the king asked him
to interpret a dream (after the king ordered
the killing of the first few people who tried):
Daniel went at once to see the king and requested
more time to tell the king what the dream
meant (Daniel 2:16 NLT).
He gives us a great model for dealing
with a high-pressure situation by asking for more
time and then talking to God about it.
Youre more likely to make a better
decision when you dont rush to make a quick one.
Take your time. [Daily Devotional by Rick Warren:
Daniel shows the right response: he leads
his friends in praying to the true God for
insight. ESVSB re Daniel 2:14"24
