Daniel6:21 “Daniel answered,My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me,because I was found innocent in His sight.”

If Daniel was blameless in God’s eyes, why did he still have to endure a night in the lion’s den? If he was innocent in the Lord’s sight why wasn’t Daniel taken out of the horrific situation? The angel may have closed the mouths of the lions,but they were still slinking around sniffing and drooling.  Sometimes you too will have to spend a night in the lion’s den through no fault of your own. You also may be innocent in His sight,but will still have to endure those menacing lions for a bit. But take heart, the Lord is still with you during those trying times…keeping the lions at bay.

Matthew 10:27- “What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight.”

We all go through confusing,dark times in our lives- times when God seems very distant. These are the times when we need to listen. Hearing becomes more acute in the dark…so listen. The Lord has a important message to give you. A message so important that only after you have come out of the darkness will you be able to fully understand and share with others the wonderful truths He revealed during those dark times.

Zephaniah 3:17 – “The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

God’s presence is right there in the midst of you right now!  This powerful verse should be read with your name inserted within these glorious declarations of God’s love towards us.  He is with you, He delights in you, He loves you, and He rejoices over you.  Allow God’s affirmation of His love for you fill you today.
