    A man's steps are established by Yahweh. He delights in his way. Though he stumble, he shall not fall, for Yahweh holds him up with his hand. I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging for bread. All day long he deals graciously, and lends...

    When they came to Marah, they couldn't drink from the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore its name was called Marah. The people murmured against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?" Then he cried to Yahweh. Yahweh showed him a tree, and he threw it into the waters, and the waters were ...

Half Starved Lions

  • Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that they should take Daniel 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. The king commanded, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions'them, their children, and their wives; and the lions mauled them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they came to the bottom of the den. Daniel 6:23-24 WEB.

    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 had to have been horrible. I am sure the soldiers stood back a little as they pushed Daniel to the pit's edge. Then with a final shove, Daniel was falling through the air, right into the hungry mouths below.

    On the way down, Daniel could hardly believe that after serving God and the kings uncompromisingly for over eighty years, they were now feeding him to the lions. What a retirement plan this was' They sealed the pit with a stone, and it grew dark. He could hear the sounds of panting hungry lions as they restlessly paced the floor. Finally, after a long dark stress-filled night, the dawn came and found Daniel unharmed. He was taken up out of the pit, and his enemies were thrown in and devoured instead.

    Tomorrow will be a better day. The dawn will come, and no matter how bad it looks during the night, you will get through it unscathed. As Daniel did in his darkest hour, continue to trust in God. Even though you may fall into the pit, He will deliver you from the half-starved lions.

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

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.'
