A Mission Impossible, With Man
As to your marriage situation, going to God for your Mission
Impossible in our word for today from the Word of God in Daniel 2,
beginning with verse 17. King Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon,
where Daniel has been taken as a captive and elevated to being a
royal advisor, has had a very troubling prophetic dream. He calls in
all his astrologers and spiritual advisors, and asks them to not only
figure out what his dream meant, but what was the dream he had – or
die. See, he doesn’t want any magician scamming him with some made-
up interpretation. Hey, if a man can tell him the dream, then he can
trust his interpretation of that dream, right?
Of course, no one can tell him what he dreamed. Then Daniel, God’s
man at court, is called in as the king’s last resort. Even for
Daniel, it’s Mission Impossible. What Daniel did is a pattern for us
when we’re facing our Mission Impossible. "Daniel returned to his
house and explained the matter to his friends … he urged them to
plead for mercy from the God of heaven … During the night the
mystery was revealed to Daniel … Then Daniel praised the God of
heaven and said: ‘Praise be to the name of God forever and ever;
wisdom and power are His.’" What follows is a powerful prayer of
extravagant praise. And when Daniel reveals the mystery to the king,
he says, "No wise man can explain the mystery … but there is a God
in heaven who reveals mysteries."
There’s the plan for your Mission Impossible. First, recruit prayer
partners to intercede for you and for this situation in your home.
The battle will be pre-won in prayer. Step two: focus on the power
of your God rather than the impossibilities of the situation. Then,
as Daniel did, download resources only God has. Daniel said, "You
have given me wisdom and power, You have made known to us the dream
of the king." God has resources that no one on earth could ever give
you. And the last step in this plan for winning in your Mission
Impossible is to give God all the glory for the breakthrough. People
may express amazement or admiration for you – you let them know it
all belongs to the mighty Lord that you serve. And you don’t have
the answers – He does. And He chose to send this particular answer,
this particular solution through you.
Well, are you kind of like Daniel, facing something that’s far beyond
what earth could do? Then, do a Daniel – "This is a job for the God
of heaven … the Lord who is my God!"
"By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of
God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which
are visible. But with out faith it is impossible to please Him, for
he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a
rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
Is anything too hard for God?
