“I kept looking in the night visions,
And behold, with the clouds of heaven
One like a Son of Man was coming,
And He came up to the Ancient of Days
And was presented before Him.”
Can you imagine being a godly statesman in a court of heathen monarchs? Can you imagine standing up for your faith, it being put to the test, but you remaining faithful to the one true God? Can you imagine God honoring your faithfulness by entrusting to you glimpses into heaven and the future? Daniel received dreams and visions such as the one in today’s verse, in which God is referred to as Ancient of Days. This reverence to God as Judge would have been a comfort to Daniel. He will judge righteously and with the wisdom of the ages.
LORD GOD, I praise You, the ANCIENT of DAYS!
