Bible: The Book Of Daniel

1169 Words5 Pages
I enjoyed reading the book of Daniel very much. I can only begin to report how much reading this book has taught me about faith, sacrifice, humility, trust, control, and obedience. The book of Daniel has made a huge impact on me and inspired me to put my full trust in the Lord.

Being a Christian in 2006 is hard at times. There is so much temptation to do the wrong thing and rarely any influence to do good. I can apply the knowledge I learned from the book of Daniel to many aspects of my life. As a parent, especially a single parent, I can instill in my daughter values and importance of being obedient not only to me but to a power much greater. I can read these amazing stories to her and help her resolve the issues she has of being a young person today. I can teach her that Daniel, Shadrach, Mescach, and Abednego went through peer pressure just like her and they stayed true to God and He protected them and kept them safe. I can teach her the lessons of being materialistic, prideful, and controlling, by sharing with her the story of King Nebuchadnezzar. The lists of lessons in this book are countless that I can teach her.

I can apply the knowledge of this book to everything in my life since this is a book about faith and trust and in God. Reading this story has reinforced that I should never doubt God. This book has made me really see that God is in control of everything. The things He puts me through, whether good or bad, are just a small part of the overall picture. This has allowed me to have a sense of peace and joy in my life that I did not have before. By turning my will over to Him, He will protect me even through the worst of times and even if it is my time to go, I am at peace knowing where I am going. Daniel had so many trials in his life. From the time Daniel was a young man he was taken away from everything he knew. He was stripped of his identity and given a new name. He was told what to do and what to eat. He had to leave his family and his culture behind.
