Rest

Read the Bible in a year by reading Daniel 11 and 12 today.
It is frustrating when we do not understand a passage of Scripture, so we vex ourselves over it. God revealed many things to Daniel in the last two chapters of his book. There were some things that he did not understand and he asked for the meaning (12:8). However, the one speaking to him told him that for the time being, those matters were sealed. Finally, a messenger said to him,
“But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days” (Daniel 12:13).
That is how the Book of Daniel ends. Yes, it is nice to be able to know all that the word of God says, but if we cannot figure out all the mysteries of His word, God just tells us to rest and know that we will still be able to share in the inheritance that is coming.
