Last week I had these Pork Taco's and I'm still obsessing over how delicious these were! Not only is this "do it yourself" recipe sweet & savory but it taste simply divine.

The Hero Is God!
The Book of DANIEL:

If you are a Jew in Babylon, you've got reason to be depressed. Jeremiah was right all along. All those times you though he was one taco short of a platter, he was telling the truth!

Jerusalem is in ashes. The Temple is in ruins. And you and rest of your people are in captivity.

Your captors mock you, "Sing us a song about Jerusalem!" (psalm 137:3). But you don't sing. You hang your harps on the poplar trees and sing on the banks of the river, watching the water and your days pass by.

Who can sing songs about the Lord in a foreign country?

Daniel can.

Though he was only a teenager when taken captive, he remembers well the songs of his youth. Somewhere in his early years he came to believe that God was sovereign. Nothing happens without his permission. Nothing happens outside his plan.

But even Daniel could not have imagined the plans God had for him. Prime minister of the court. Interpreter of dreams. Prophet. Teacher. Ruler. A lifelong voice for God among pagan people.

But though the central character of the book is Daniel, the hero is God. "There is a God in heaven . . ." Daniel told the king (2:28), and it was that God in heaven who sustained Daniel and the people while in captivity.

That God, by the way, still reigns.

And anytime God's people have hung up their harps, listen carefully. God always has a Daniel who remembers to sing.
