When Trouble Comes

What they faced

When Daniel learned that Nebuchadnezzar intended to execute the wise men of Babylon if they could not tell him his dream and interpret it, he went to his friends “so that they might request compassion from the God of heaven . . .” (Daniel 2:17-18).

Centuries later Peter and John were forbidden to preach Christ. They informed their friends and then together they “lifted their voices to God with one accord . . .” (Acts 4:18, 23, 24).

How they responded

In both cases: 1) they were threatened by the authorities, 2) they went to their fellow believers, 3) they prayed, 4) God answered them mightily.

Note: Before the crisis came, they already had a strong relationship with God and His people.

They had their resources ready.

Do we?
