At The Eleventh Hour

Daniel 2:21-22

21 He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.

Have you ever had to provide an answer for something that was beyond your scope or field of reference? Where you humble enough to go and seek the answer? King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream. He didn't understand the meaning of the dream and was very perplexed. So he summoned everyone he knew within the royal court that to him, should be able to provide answers. Those that were not able to provide him with satisfactory answers were immediately executed. Someone brought up Daniel's name. As he was considered to be the wisest among them all. So he was given a short period time to provide king with answers. If he didn't, he would be executed along with his friends, Hanniah, Mishael and Azariah. Of course they sought the only source that could answer, God. For God was the one that provided the king with the dream. It was very late in the night but God delivered at the eleventh hour. Not just for the sake of Daniel and his friends but to show the king the glory of God. For Daniel praised God because he knew that without him, he could not answer the king.

All of us at some point will be asked questions that we ourselves cannot possibly answer. Like toddlers that ask parents, "why is the sky blue?", we have to know that we can go to our heavenly Father in heaven and ask questions that we know only he can answer. The key is understanding that he may not answer the questions in our timing but when he knows we are at a place where we are truly ready to receive and not reject the knowledge, he shall open our eyes to the revelation.

What revelation have you received from God? Is at the eleventh hour for you? Is the powder in the hour glass at its last few drops?
