obey the Lord's voice

Daniel 9

v10

Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

Daniel was seeking the Lord by praying and fasting, and he got to see Gabriel come and talk with him!

Daniel confessed his own sins and his people's sins. One of the sins basically sounds like they weren't listening to the Lord's Word.

We shouldn't neglect the opportunity to get up early enough in the morning to listen to the Lord's Word. When it *is* time to hear the Lord, we shouldn't distract ourselves with other things instead. Finally, we need to obey. That's what Israel's problem really was.
