Sermon: Living Among the Powers

by JP Harper

Opening Prayer: Psalm 13


1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?


3 Look on me and answer, Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death, 4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall.


5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. 6 I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.

Living Among the Powers


The history outlined in Daniel's vision...



The people of God are given the vision to...


1) See the real power and treacherous character of many who will continue to rule over them



2) Be sure of God's final vindication of his people and name



3) Serve faithfully without growing cynical or apathetic

Closing Prayer


33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and[a] knowledge of God!

How unsearchable his judgments,

and his paths beyond tracing out!

34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord?

Or who has been his counselor?”

35 “Who has ever given to God,

that God should repay them?”

36 For from him and through him and for him are all things.

To him be the glory forever! Amen.



Discussion Questions


  1. What forces that are shaping the world today do you think are the greatest threat to God's people?

  2. In what ways does our cynicism or apathy towards the world sometimes manifest itself?

  3. In what practical ways does following Jesus reshape the way we think about those with power over us? In what ways does it shape the way we use the power and influence that we have?
