What is the correlation of our Christian faith and facts? How does your faith increase when you know factual truth? Assess your faith in the Lord. Is it based on “blind faith,” or are there experiences or factual truths that bolster your faith? Name some of those facts in life that help support your Christian faith. How much effort do you put in to seek to learn more about God and His Word?
If I told you, “The best is yet to come,” would you really believe it to be true in your life? Without any evidence that it will be better in the future, how can you believe that the best is yet to come? What part of God’s character and His actions remind you of this truth? If something isn’t as you have planned, how can a different plan be just as good (or better) than what you originally had in mind?

How do you think those promises encouraged Daniel as he entered the unknown? How do these truths encourage you as you step into the unknown?
