Daniel grew up as a good Jewish boy in Judah. As a teenager, possibly around 15 years of age, a foreign enemy conquered his nation, and he was taken captive to a faraway land. There he experienced a different culture with its strange food, language, and customs. Under these taxing conditions he would spend the rest of his life successfully exalting God by living a Faith Under Fire.
Can you trust God when your world falls apart? Daniel did. He lived close to God all the days of his life, serving Him faithfully and with great integrity in a foreign land. Daniel teaches us that God is faithful and He is in control.
The Book of Daniel was written to encourage the exiled Jews living in Babylonia by revealing God’s continued plan for them. This gave the Jews a great hope for the future even though their past was filled with great heartbreak and pain.
