Questions for Reflection – Study of Daniel 9-12

This past week, I wrote of my study in Daniel 5-8 and there are also two poems this study has inspired.  Please check them out at these links below:

Fulfilling Your Destiny
Rock Solid Thinking

The plan now is to post some thoughts as I spend some time in Daniel 9-12. Over the next two weeks, I will use the questions below to help focus on each passage.

Daniel 9
What is Daniel doing that seems to initiate his prayers? What brings God’s judgment and wrath? As a Christian, how do you seek God’s wisdom, understanding and guidance?

Daniel 10
What is Daniel doing when he has this vision? Why are Daniel’s words heard? How does the prophet receive peace and strength?

Daniel 11
What is revealed to Daniel? Who is revealing these things (See 10:15-17)? Who will be able to stand under such chaos and pressure? Why do God’s people have to suffer? What is their responsibility during such times?

Daniel 12
Describe the time mentioned. Can you comprehend all of God’s ways? How should you respond to what God has told or shown you?

The above reading plan will be used as I share over the next few posts. It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us, is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ. 

Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
