Trapped in a den of lions? Are your Lions roaring, growling, ready to pounce, with mouth wide open? Perhaps you feel as though you’re about to be devoured. Maybe, the face of the lion, while distorted with blood thirsty anger, looks familiar. Maybe it’s the face of a friend, a spouse, or a co-worker.
Daniel found himself in a den of lions, for worshipping his God. A law had been signed and sealed that no one should worship anyone other than King Darius. Daniel, as he was accustomed, dropped to his knees three times daily to praise the Living God. When the Kings men found him on bent knees, they couldn’t wait to deliver him to the King, and ultimately to the lions.
Those happy and proud men who found Daniel breaking their law were sure his life sentence was signed and sealed.
There would be a delivering, but it wouldn’t be to death. You see, Daniel believed his God, (Daniel 6:23) and his God believed in him. “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him…” (6:22) He, the Almighty, faithful, loving God shut the mouths of the lions, delivering Daniel.
He’ll deliver you too. Just belive. Trust and believe.
Peace be multiplied to you.
…For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever,
His kingdom is the one which shall not
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth…
Don’t forget to fall to those beautiful knees and give, joyfully, praise to He who is worthy.
