Chew on this...

Praying Daniel 10:12 for 2014. Third “gain understanding”. Daniel never topped learning because he never stopped seeking understanding. Pray for continued learning, seeking, so we can understand what it is God is calling us to do. So we have an understanding of God’s love and mercy in order for us to share it and bring others to His family. Daniel became a product of his own prayer in Daniel 2:20-21. “He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.” Pray Proverbs 2:3-5 and search for the hidden treasure. Find the knowledge of God! (most of this came out of Beth Moore’s Daniel study.)  Fourth “to humble yourself before your God”. We often talk about whether we can trust God, but our concluding question is, “Can God trust us?” Can God trust us with power, insight, and influence as He did Daniel or will our pride get in the way? C.S. Lewis wrote, “Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.” We can’t ignore pride, we have to deal with it because our minds are pre-set on pride. Daniel set his mind to humble himself before his God. Pray that we will pray this same prayer each day of our lives because God wants to trust us. (most of this came out of Beth Moore’s Daniel study.) ~ Frances
