Help Others with What God Has Taught You

When you’re faced with an impossibly big request, it’s easy to just give up. You figure that your boss should just find someone else. You guess that your spouse just doesn’t get you. You suspect your teacher isn’t paying attention to how many assignments he’s given you.

But what if God has more in mind? What if the Lord put you in the situation because he wants you to help someone else?

You see this in the story of Daniel that we’ve been looking at over the last few days. We’ve seen Daniel provide a great pattern for us to follow when we’ve been given an impossible task:

  1. Don’t panic, and then get the facts.
  2. Ask for more time.
  3. Gather prayer partners.
  4. Ask God for supernatural help.
  5. Worship God.

Then, Daniel used what the Lord had shown him to save others. God saved Daniel from the impossible task, but he didn’t just do it for Daniel’s own good. He also wanted Daniel to help others.

The Bible says, “Then Daniel went in to see Arioch, whom the king had ordered to execute the wise men of Babylon. Daniel said to him, ‘Don’t kill the wise men. Take me to the king, and I will tell him the meaning of his dream’” (Daniel 2:24 NLT).

God gave Daniel the answer to the king’s dream, but Daniel wouldn’t tell the king without ensuring the safety of the wise men—the Babylonian wise men!

God doesn’t want to just save you. He wants to save everyone. He wants to save your family and friends. He even wants to save your competitors and enemies. God cares about everyone.

And so should we.

That’s why you need to continue reaching out to people with the Good News about Jesus. God wants everyone to know him and his purpose for their lives.

That’s your witness. That’s your mission in the world.
