When Daniel was a little boy, a foreign king invaded his homeland and took him to Babylon.  He lived in a place he never thought he would be.  So the questions is:  What do you do when you end up in Babylon?  Babylon is where you find yourself when life doesn't turn out the way you planned.  It may be a relationship did not turn out the way you planned or your finances are not what you thought they would be at this point in your life.

We all live in a world that will try to tempt us into settling for less than God's best.  Researchers say that the factor that causes people to give up is not the difficulty they experience in life.  But they usually say, "there's no point in going on...." There is no reason for me to keep living.

When you find yourself in Babylon; make a decision you will honor God.  Future decisions will be based on this one decision.

The Psalmist writes in Psalm 110:3  “Your people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: you have the dew of your youth.” .  Morning represents a new day.  The womb represents one who gives birth.  Every day is a new day and an opportunity for God to speak and in your holiness you give birth.

There were those who did not plan to be living in the condition they were, but God spoke into their womb and they gave birth.  When the womb of Sarah spoke the she gave birth to a promise for all generations including us.  When the womb of Hannah spoke, Israel heard the voice of Samuel.  When the womb of Elizabeth spoke, a nation heard the voice of John the Baptist.  When the womb of Mary spoke, the world heard and is still hearing the voice of Jesus Christ.
