HopeFriday – Pages 260–261When Daniel had been in Babylon 67 years, he recalled a letter the prophet Jeremiah sent to the exiles. It said the nations that had scattered Israel and Judah would be destroyed. That had happened: both the Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian empires had fallen. Hope must have arisen in Daniel’s heart.1. (a) According to Jeremiah’s letter, how long would the Lord wait to bring his people back to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 29:10)? (b) What was God’s plan behind exiling his people (29:11)? (c) What did he want the people to do when the time was nearing its end (29:12–13)? (d) When they did, what would God do (29:14)? (e) What can we learn from this about our own times of “exile”? Daniel, the righteous man of prayer, acted on God’s promise. He fasted, put on sackcloth and ashes, and prayed earnestly for God’s mercy. He confessed his own sins and the sins of the Israelites. He expressed dismay over those who still refused to seek God. He called on God’s love, mercy, and willingness to forgive.Give ear, O God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name. Daniel 9:18–19While he was still praying the Angel Gabriel appeared. The decree to rebuild the city was coming! 2. (a) What lesson from Daniel and his friends do you most want to apply to your life this week? (b) What steps can you take towards achieving that?

RighteousnessThursday – Pages 256–260The Neo-Babylonian Empire fell to Persia. The Persian King Darius was impressed with Daniel, who was an old man now, but still filled with wisdom. Darius planned to put Daniel over the kingdom, but jealous colleagues sought a way to stop him.They knew Daniel prayed three times a day, which gave them an idea for setting a trap. They and a group of other leaders went to Darius and claimed that all his leaders had agreed he should decree that no one could pray to any god or human for a month, except to Darius, on penalty of being thrown into a lion’s den. It wasn’t true, of course: Daniel hadn’t agreed to it. Fooled, Darius followed their advice and issued the decree. 11. (a) What did Daniel do when he heard about the decree (Daniel 6:10)? (b) Describe Daniel’s prayers (6:10–11). (c) What can we learn about prayer from Daniel?An angel closed the lions’ mouths, and Daniel remained safe. Darius’s men lifted Daniel from the den and threw his accusers in instead.Darius sent a letter throughout the Persian Empire.12. (a) What had Darius learned about God from Daniel (Daniel 6:26–27)? (b) What are some of the reactions the exiles and other peoples may have had when they heard this news? (c) Describe a time when God rescued you from danger.The Israelites were supposed to be a nation that made God known to all other nations. When they abandoned God, they couldn’t serve that purpose as a nation. Yet God used even their disobedience as a means to reach people! See MoreSee Less

CourageWednesday – Pages 254–256Worshipping other gods was not an option for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Nebuchadnezzar was furious when they disobeyed his order to worship the enormous gold image he set up. He gave them another chance to obey, or he’d have them thrown into a fiery furnace. 1. (a) What did Nebuchadnezzar say about gods in Daniel 3:15? (b) What did the three Jews say about themselves in 3:16? (c) What did they say about God in 3:17? (d) What would they do if God didn’t do what he was capable of doing (3:18)? They believed God was able to rescue them, but might choose not to.2. (a) Why would they serve a God who might not rescue them even though he was able? (b) What can we learn about facing hardship from this?Thrown into the blazing hot furnace, they were joined by someone the king described as looking like the son of gods. They were no longer bound, and they walked among the flames unharmed. Nebuchadnezzar had been wrong: the God of heaven was perfectly capable of rescuing his servants from the king.3. (a) After Nebuchadnezzar called Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego out of the furnace, what did he say about them (Daniel 3:28)? (b) What did Nebuchadnezzar then decree (3:29)? (c) How did God use this event to let the nations know he is God, even though at the moment things weren’t going well for the little nation that was supposed to represent him? 10. What can we learn about standing firm in our faith from Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego? See MoreSee Less
