Do you ever feel weary due to the wickedness of our world? These verses remind us that though God has a purpose for allowing the evil around us, He will not allow it to continue forever. Daniel’s vision of the Ancient of Days reminds us that God’s reign is eternal and that He will smite the nations who rebel against Him with swift judgment. Though Satan’s kingdom is extensive and damaging, the Lord will exercise His authority over His sinister enemies as He rids the earth of all unbelievers and demonic forces. Christ will rule over all creation as the King of all kings. Daniel’s message is just as encouraging today as it was to ancient Jews who lived in captivity outside of Israel. Despite the dismal forecast on the nightly news, God’s victory is coming without delay. Our great Savior will restore our fallen home for His glory.
How should you respond to the injustice of this world in light of God’s future victory over it?
