Daniel was a truly remarkable servant of the Lord. He was a prophet (Matt. 24:15), and yet, for the most part he did not prophesy. Rather, he was one who saw visions, including some of the key visions in the entire Bible, such as the vision of the Great Image, the Four Beasts, and the prophecy of the 70 Weeks.
His life, unlike that of many Old Testament prophets, is not so remote or different from our own, and it shows us how we, like Daniel, can be full of vision as we follow the Lord today.
