Troubled by a message from God

Daniel saw a vision of various empires bringing trouble to the world, and he said,

“I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit within my body, and the visions of my head troubled me” (Daniel 7:15).

We also get troubled by messages of God, sometimes because we simply want to know the meaning of a difficult passage and at other times because the message does not say something very good about us.

Whatever it is, do as Daniel did, for verse 16 shows that he sought the meaning.

God does not seek to harm us, but He wants our well-being. We either have to struggle with learning the meaning of Scripture or we struggle with conforming our lives to Scripture, either way, we gain in so doing.
