    Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me; declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure; Isaiah 46:9 WEBDuring a sci-fi night...
  • Joseph came in to them in the morning, and saw them, and saw that they were sad. He asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in custody in his master's house, saying, 'Why do you look so sad today?' They said to him, 'We have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it.' Joseph said ...

Half Starved Lions

  • Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God. Daniel 6:23 ESV

    They took Daniel to the edge of the lions' den and let him see all of the half starved lions prowling below them. The stench drifting upwards was horrible. I am sure the soldiers stood back a little ways as they pushed him to the edge of the pit. Then with a shove Daniel was falling through the air, right into the hungry mouths below.

    On the way down he could hardly believe that after serving God and the kings uncompromisingly for over eighty years, that he was now being fed to the lions. What a retirement plan this was'they sealed the pit with a stone and it became dark with the sound of panting hungry lions pacing the floor. After a long dark stress-filled night, the dawn finally came and Daniel was unharmed. He was taken out of the pit, and his enemies were thrown in and devoured.

    Tomorrow will be a better day. The dawn will come and no matter how bad it looks at night you will come through it unscathed. God will deliver you from the half-starved lions. As Daniel did in his darkest hour, just continue to trust in God.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask that You deliver me from the enemy. Protect me and my family Lord. Right the wrongs in my life and give me a fresh vision for the future, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Thank you pastor Dion for the devotional. I wasn't able to sleep the entire night now for two nights in a row with migraines because I couldn't sleep, due to a recent surgery. Please pray that these migraines go away. I bless God in the blessings and the trials.

Lord, Please teach me to have the unswerving dedication of Daniel and the courage that it takes to stand up to being thrown into a lions' den and still not waver.  I try, but my human self fails miserably.  I need your Spirit to uphold me and provide the daily guidance to keep me on Your path of righteousness.
