When King Nebuchadnezzar conquered Judah in 605 B.C., his empire was the greatest in the world. He brought educated, young, male Israelites like Daniel back to Babylon to serve in the king's palace. This series focuses on the lessons we can learn from the life of Daniel in choosing to hold fast to your convictions, rather than conforming to the world.
In Daniel Chapter 2, we learn that the king has had a disturbing dream that none of his wise men can interpret---except Daniel. God gives Daniel a vision revealing the dream's meaning, and after thanking the Lord, he presents the meaning to the king. But first, he lets the king know that it was God who gave him the interpretation. In 602 B.C., Daniel proved that his confidence was in God. Where does your confidence come from? Pastor Chris talks about the dream, giving God the Glory, and a few questions to take home.
