I want to be like Daniel.
He was a man who knew God’s word – he was constantly listening to what God was saying to him – and he had incredible faith.  It seems as if he never winced.  Daniel’s constant yearning for God made him a man that was trusted by God; and much wisdom and knowledge was given.  From that, I believe that he was equipped with his faith that God is in control.  My favorite verses that echo this are Daniel 2:20-23.

Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him.  It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding.  It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.  To you, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, For you have given me wisdom and power; even now You have made known to me what we requested of you.  For You have made known to us the king’s matter.
