THE CALL OUT OF OBSCURITY
By Henry Jaegers
Then Daniel was brought in before the king. The king spoke and said to Daniel, ďAre you that Daniel who is one of the exiles from Judah, whom my father the king brought from Judah? (Daniel 5:13)
Twenty three years has passed since any significant event has taken place in Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar has died and Belshazzar has succeeded him. There has not been any need for Danielís ministry but things have progressed badly under Belshazzar and the time has arrived for God to bring this kingdom and chapter to a close. Enough time has elapsed for Daniel to have been forgotten, but God has not forgotten him neither has He been inactive in Danielís life.
It is not by accident that Daniel is rushed to the scene. The nation is in a panic mode and the queen mother recalled the events pertaining to Nebuchadnezzar. They remembered Daniel, who successfully helped Nebuchadnezzar with his dreams. There was a need that only Godís servant could meet and God helped them to remember Daniel.
In the following chapters we shall see that this lapse in time was a continuous process of preparing Daniel for a greater purpose. His ministry extended through two kingdoms; that of Babylon and Medo-Persia. Often in dry spells of ministry it is easy to think that God is not working. We may also engage ourselves in thinking that we are being punished for something. Faithfulness in the ordinary happenings of the day are just as important as what we may think are the big things. God is in control and His timing is always perfect. Though we may not recognize it, He is always working in accomplishing His purposes for us.

Your message is perfect for the title! I always have a hard time with that. Naming an article. Loved the history, and accurate use of the context. Length is perfect. I love the lesson in the details we overlook. Often we read the verses without realizing time is passing. I am excited to follow the story. Great reading,and a wonderful lesson! and the LORD used you to talk to me at this moment. Thanks
