“At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:” (Daniel 9:23)
When life has dealt you blow after blow, when the season is long and prayer has been constant yet there is no breakthrough, it’s easy to believe one of the greatest lies the enemy of our souls tells us all…God doesn’t hear you, He doesn’t care about you…He doesn’t love you.
I wonder if Daniel felt that same way too, after all, he spent nearly his entire life in bondage. He was taken into bondage as a teenager and scholars tell us he was probably about 84 years old when this heavenly messenger visited him.
