He[Lord] calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:2
Lord calls His children by names. He names those who are His, He changes Abram to Abraham, Simon to Peter, Saul to Paul, Jacob to Israel, list goes on, today if He calls you what will He call?. We will learn today; what Lord called Daniel, and tomorrow why He called him like that. What was the blessing Daniel had because of the new name? Lord called Daniel ‘man highly esteemed’ three times Dan 9:23, 10:11, 10:19
“As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed Dan 9:23. Daniel read in Jer 29:11-15 that people would be free after 70 years and Daniel read it on the 70th Year, He started to pray for the deliverance. Lord immediately answered and that years Israelites were left free by King Cyrus.
He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” Dan 10:11. Daniel was praying for revelation to know when deliverance is going to happen for Israelites but Lord also revealed that after 483 years Jesus would be born and also of the second coming of Jesus. How awesome, God is the revealers of secrets.
“Do not be afraid, O man highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” Dan 10:19. When Daniel heard the Persian king (satan) stopped the answer for 21 days, Daniel lost all his strength, but Lord speaks peace into his situation. When you are left with no strength; Lord sends in peace that passes all understanding.
Lord; change my name that I will be only yours. I belong to you alone daddy. I know I am blessed beyond curse, and your promise will endure, that I am your son. Amen.
