Topic: Daniel’s Dose: Adventure 32- All evil; comes to an end!
Bible Reading: Daniel 11
Memory Verse: Daniel 11:45b (NKJV)
…Yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? I hope your week has been great so far! Today, we continue the Daniel’s Dose adventures by exploring the theme, “All evil; comes to an end!” Do you know that all evil things come to an end? Do you know that when you do not follow God’s will; all your plans will come to an end? Well, the Holy Spirit wants to highlight these (and more) in today’s message! Are you ready?
Let us get right into the message!
At times, we go through situations and it seems as though evil is winning! Other times, we see others do un-Godly/ un-Holy things to others! We (might) know some people who place other things above God- money, power, cars, etc.! We, sometimes, think to ourselves, “When will all this evil end?” Today, the Holy Spirit brings us this message; to assure and re-assure us that “evil never prevails. All things come to an end!”
Evil has a way of making it seem like they are always in control. As a child of God, it is important to always know that God is with you! He will never let anything bad happen to you! Most importantly, you have to know and believe that Christ has conquered all evil. On crucifixion day, Christ made us conquerors. We are mightier and stronger than all evil. With that, no evil plans by the enemy shall prevail. All the plans, schemes, plots of the enemy will all come to an end!
Today’s message is dedicated to anyone who is currently experiencing a tough time; in one or more areas of your life! It may seem as though the evil people around you are prevailing! It may seem that all the plots and schemes of the enemy are successfully executed! I am here to assure you today; evil has not won. It may feel like it has! It never can! You are a child of God! You are a conqueror! The enemy has no hold over you!
The enemy makes it seem and feel like he is winning, so, he can win you over! Don’t give the enemy that chance! God’s word has never failed! He’s Word promises us that He is always with us! God’s Word promises that we have power over the enemy! Take these promises and run with them! Let them fill your heart and your mind! So that you do not give the enemy the opportunity to use his tactics to trap you!
In the same vain, we must make sure to do all that God tells us! Why? Well, because God’s words are final! They are Ye and Amen! If you live a life, not in accordance with His Will or Word for your life; you are disobeying Him!
When we begin to think that we can manage our lives, we begin to use our human efforts to get the successes we think we need! With that comes scheming, dealing, lying and many others! This life we live is not our own! We cannot use our strength to go through life! Today, I will urge you to take a few minutes to take a look at your life! Are you living life with your strength or are you rested and reliant on God’s strength? As a Christian, you have to make sure you are in line with God’s will for your life! All things here (on earth) comes to an end without God! In everything, seek God!
Today’s memory verse in Daniel 11, talks about how the king of the North “came to and end.” Daniel 11 is the recount of a vision Daniel had! This king felt he was bigger and better than God! So, he did everything else but the will of God! He worshipped himself and was hungry for power (and other things). With all that he had done, the Bible said that “… he shall come to his end…” The Bible is telling us that regardless of all he may do; it will all come to an end. That represents evil/ the enemy! No matter how many stunts he may pull- he will surely come to an end! For evil never prevails!
The verse ends by saying, “… and no one will help him!” Yes! Evil has no place! The enemy cannot challenge God and win! No one or nothing on this earth, under this earth or above this earth is greater than our God! [He is mighty and powerful!] This is the end for evil!
Today, be calm, be strong! The enemy’s plans will surely come to an end! You are on the right army! God is with you! He will protect and guide you always. Keep on trusting in Him! Also, spend some time in God’s presence! Ensure that you are living your life in line with His plans. This is very important! Seek God in everything you do! So that you may enjoy all the blessings that God has instore for His (obedient) children! God bless you! Have a wonderful, rest-of-the-day!

I thank you for my life. I thank you for giving me another beautiful day. I ask that you guide me and protect me. I pray that I will choose you in every situation that I face. And that my life will be a testimony and an example to many that I have Christ living in me. Thank you, Lord, for sending your son to die on the cross and wipe my sins away. I lift your name high for you are Alpha and Omega. Amen!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favour over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
1. Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
2. Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out!
