Somebody other than his three friends went to Babylon with Daniel
As we began our lesson this morning during Bible class, someone made a simple but good point about Daniel’s request for God’s help concerning Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Their point was that God was with Daniel even in Babylon. That’s a point worth thinking about!
God had not “stayed at home” in Jerusalem when the captivity began. God was willing to follow Daniel to Babylon because Daniel was willing to follow God in Babylon.
So while we may think Daniel only had three close friends travel with him as he left the earthly Zion behind … the fact is, Daniel had at least four.
““Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “And not a God afar off?” (Jeremiah 23:23 NKJV)
