Things don’t always go as planned. So what do you do when you discover your future is not what you hoped for? Daniel went from exile to national hero to one of Israel's greatest prophets on foreign soil. None of this was as he planned but it was all according to God's plan. But he wasn't great just because of his power or influence. He was great because of where he'd learned to place his hope. People are excited to study the life and prophecies of one of Israel's greatest prophets.
