In this message we explore the first portion of the second story that we come to in the book of Daniel. Nebuchadnezzar has had a dream that troubles him deeply and he cannot sleep. He desperately wants to know its meaning but his usual "experts" are incapable of helping him. But God can. Daniel and his friends gather to pray and God speaks. He reveals the sought for knowledge. To be sure God does not always tell us all we might want to know, but he has spoken and he continues to speak today, through his Word, the Bible, and through the Word, Jesus Christ. And his revelation instills in people of faith, great confidence and peace, even in the face of life's difficulties and pain.
