It was while he was still praying that the angel Gabriel was sent to him with this message: “Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed.” (Dan 9:22-23) What was it that made Daniel a man highly esteemed, not just by people, but by God? Looking back through the beginning of this episode, we can get a few clues. Daniel studied God’s word. He didn’t just read the Bible for the sake of reading it, he read it to be understood. Having read and understood, Daniel put what he had learnt into action. Daniel prayed. in fact, he did more than pray. Daniel completely humbled himself in his prayer by fasting and wearing sackcloth and ashes. He praised God, lifted him up and exalted him. Daniel admitted his sin, confessed it and repented of it in the presence of the LORD. (Dan 9:5) He was not prepared to point the finger at others but included himself as he confessed. He turned to the LORD before he turned to anyone else. Maybe if we had the same attributes and did the same things as Daniel, we too may be able to live a life described by God as highly esteemed.
