Josh:  Amos 5:23 (HCSB)  “Take away from Me the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps.”  It is unusual for God to refuse music but he desires a heart that is in-tune rather than a harp that is in-tune.

Josh:  Hosea 7:2 (HCSB)  “But they never consider that I remember all their evil. Now their sins are all around them; they are right in front of My face.”  One of the devil’s lies is that when I sin it is done in secret and that no one needs to know. Nothing is hidden from the sight of God. This is a comforting yet sobering thought.

Josh:  Daniel 10:12 (HCSB)  “‘Don’t be afraid, Daniel,’ he said to me, ‘for from the first day that you purposed to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your prayers were heard. I have come because of your prayers.'”  Purpose. Humility. Prayer. 

Lindsey: Daniel 11:32 (NLT) “He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him.”  Let us all know Him!!!

Josh:  Daniel 7:28 (HCSB)  “This is the end of the interpretation. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts terrified me greatly, and my face turned pale, but I kept the matter to myself.”  It takes great wisdom to know when to share and when to keep things between me and God. 

Lindsey: Daniel 9:2 (NLT) “During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from reading the word of the Lord, as revealed to Jeremiah the prophet, that Jerusalem must lie desolate for seventy years.” He learned from reading the word of the Lord. Here’s to always reading and learning from scripture and others!

Josh:  Daniel 5:10 (HCSB)  “Because of the outcry of the king and his nobles, the queen came to the banquet hall. ‘May the king live forever,’ she said. ‘Don’t let your thoughts terrify you or your face be pale.'”  A wise wife is priceless.  So glad that God has blessed me with one.

Lindsey: Daniel 5:21 (NLT) “He was driven from human society. He was given the mind of a wild animal, and he lived among the wild donkeys. He ate grass like a cow, and he was drenched with the dew of heaven, until he learned that the Most High God rules over the kingdoms of the world and appoints anyone he desires to rule over them.”  Key phrase: “until he learned.” What might God be waiting for me to learn in situations that linger in my life?

Josh:  Daniel 3:16 (HCSB)  “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to the king, ‘Nebuchadnezzar, we don’t need to give you an answer to this question.'”  Wow!  Now that’s bold.

Lindsey: Daniel 3:18 (NLT) “But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” I love that phrase, “we want to make it clear to you,” as though they are saying “make no mistake about it!” I want my actions and words to be clearly for Jesus and the gospel message.
