Daniel records the words of King Nebuchadnezzar concerning how God humbled him and then, ultimately, restored him when he repented. The Living God will not tolerate being displaced by anyone or anything. He humbles the proud but gives grace to the humble.

Daniel #10 "Delivered"

Delivered from False Accusations • June 26, 2016 • R. Chip Denief

Adversity is common to all mankind and 'fairness' is not very often a part of life. How should a Christian respond in circumstances of false criticism or accusation?

Daniel #9 "Pride"

God provides Grace to the Humble • June 19, 2016 • R. Chip Denief

Countering the common philosophy of mankind, Humility is necessary for success. Kings & Kingdoms rise and fall and pride is nearly always a contributing factor in their fall.

Daniel #7 "Courage"

Courage under Challenge • June 5, 2016 • R. Chip Denief

Daniel's friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego were faced with a significant challenge... bow down to the king's idol or die. For these men to bow before the idol would require displacing their confidence and faith in the only Living God and they rightly chose to courageously stand for the Living God and face death.
