Whom is This? Daniel at the Door – Day 4

“On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river (that is, the Tigris) Daniel 10:4

Daniel was in the right place or “path”.

Jerusaelm
Jerusalem

Daniel was – at the place to see a “break forth” of his fasting.

Bethlehem
Bethlehem the house of “bread”

“(Daniel) probably walking there, not for diversion, but devotion and contemplation, as Isaac walked the field…” quote by Matthew Henry

Jesus walked with “direction and course” for devotion and prayer with the Father.

“…first month” is speaking of  the month of Nissan – Jesus was crucified on the 14th day of Nissan. I wonder if He was walking on by the Sea of Galilee 10 days after he rose?Arbel, Galilee, Israel


 

The past three days I have prepared the posts the night before. Last night, after a long day, I choose to sit quietly before going to bed. Rising early, for the best part of my day, time spent in the Word.  Pondering whether to take to prepare the post of Dalet, I want to be sure I am right on His path and not mine.

noted in my handwriting was Exodus 21:6. Turning to the Scripture, my heart was quicken with a sweet “Word” to open the door for this post today. 

“He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him forever.” Exodus 21:6

The verse is speaking about one who “chooses” to stay by his master’s side and live in his house.

Yes, today Lord, I thank You for Your Word, which guides, and positions me at the door of all the good things You have prepared on the path. Blessings be upon all my friends and neighbors as they go on their paths today.
