HE Will Deliver
Daniel 6:16 ESV
Then the king commanded, and Daniel was brought and cast into the den of lions. The king declared to Daniel, "May your GOD, whom you serve continually, deliver you!"
I want to tell someone today, that GOD indeed shall deliver you. There are no if , and's or but's about it. GOD is faithful. HE has never failed and HE never will. Stay encouraged and know that there is no situation on this earth that is greater than our GOD.
Daniel, like many who face hardships, did nothing wrong. All he did was serve GOD and hold fast to his integrity. He did what should have been done. Yet, he was conspired against, set up, etc. It looked like his enemies had the upper hand. Oh, I'm sure they rejoiced when they saw him get thrown into the den of lions and the stone rolled in front of the pit. They were convinced of his demise.
There are people on this earth today who will conspire against you while smiling in your face. They will befriend you and have you thrown into the pit all in the same breath. Yet, I am here to tell you to not be mad or bitter. They did just what they were supposed to do; they set you up. They just were blind to the fact that it was only allowed, because GOD, HIMself is going to not only rescue you, ,but perform such a great miracle in the process that all will know that HE is GOD!!
So do not fret yourself when it seems like your time is up. Don't fret when it seems like you've been thrown into the pit. Stay focused, remain faith filled! Our GOD shall deliver!
Daniel 6:21-22, 26-28
Then Daniel said to the king, "O king, live forever! My GOD sent HIS angel and shut the lions' mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm.
I make a decree, that in all my royal dominion people are to tremble and fear before the GOD of Daniel for HE is the living GOD, enduring forever; HIS kingdom shall never be destroyed, and his dominion shall be to the end. HE delivers and rescues; HE works signs and wonders in heaven and earth, HE who has saved Daniel from the power of the lions." So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
