Read Introduction to Daniel

 

Daniel 10: 8 “Therefore I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me; for my vigor was turned to frailty in me, and I retained no strength.”

 

10:8

Therefore I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me; for my vigor was turned to frailty in me, and I retained no strength.

Daniel’s strength drained from him as he received this vision.  He was in solitude when God revealed Himself to Daniel. 

10:9

Yet I heard the sound of his words; and while I heard the sound of his words I was in a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.

Daniel fainted but while in the faint he heard words from this angel

10:10

Suddenly, a hand touched me, which made me tremble on my knees and on the palms of my hands.

The angel’s touch caused Daniel further consternation

PRINCIPLE: 

Solitude is a place where we meet God. 

APPLICATION: 

It is a wonderful condition to be alone with God.  Solitude with the Savior is something few cherish.  The tendency is to hide ourselves from the presence of the Lord (Ge 3:8).  God shows Himself to those who take time for Him. 

Ga 1:11 “But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it. 14 And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, 16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood, 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia (a desert), and returned again to Damascus.”
