In the book of Daniel chapter 6 we read how Daniel had been trapped by those who did not care for his commitment to God. They devised a plan to have him killed, and it may have worked if not for his focus on God. He is delivered from the jaws of the lions by God and in turn is set free. His steadfast love and unwavering faith in God not only rescued him but brought King Darius to believe as well.
For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will NOT be destroyed,
and HIS dominion will never end. He rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders
in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of lions. Daniel 6:26-27
It may seem to some of us that we are gripped in the jaws of hopelessness and despair, and it may seem that this may never end. When we focus on God nothing can get in the way of our commitment and steadfast love for God for He will not allow anything to get in His way of taking care of us.
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not grow faint. Isaiah 40:28-31
In the darkest and weakest times in my life my faith, my desire, and my Love for God has always grown stronger. Allow the loving hand of the Father to rest upon you.
We walk by faith and not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
Have an amazing day!
