A Meditation on Doing Exploits for God From the Book of Daniel

“The people that do know their God shall be courageously resolute, and act with effect.” (Daniel 11:32)

Editor’s Note: An “exploit” is defined in our modern English as a bold and daring feat. The following meditation is a grouping of passages from the book of Daniel centered around the idea of believers living courageously and effectively for God (i.e. “doing exploits”) no matter the circumstance and in the face of intense opposition. With the exception of a few editorial comments from Gary, it is simply the Biblical text. It is not an exhaustive study, but is intended to provide thoughtful discussion for families and further digging into God’s Word.
