God's Got Us - A Journey through the Book of Daniel
It’s not just that "God's got this!". He does, but it's so much more. "God's got this!" is good if we remember that he has us in his plan and purpose and not the other way around. God is sovereign and he is in charge and in control even when people are in rebellion to him and circumstances are dark and difficult. He acts, we respond and our responses have repercussions, for good or for ill, salvation or destruction. Consider Daniel and his friends. Caught in the storm of history, overrun by events, suddenly thrust into dark circumstances, still they kept their bearings because they knew it was not about them but about Him. The Book of Daniel reveals the scope of God's sovereignty. From the intensely personal circumstances of four young men ripped from their homes and forced to serve the king who conquered them to fantastic visions of world events, we see God's sovereign power and purpose throughout. It is my hope that this study will help us all to face the personal and global challenges of our time with less fear, cynicism and anger and with greater faith, hope and love because God's Got Us!
