Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.” (Daniel 6:21-22 NKJV)
Angels are sent to believers to take care of the lions in our lives. Sometimes we want God to protect us in a time of crisis, but until we repent of sin, we shouldn’t expect supernatural protection. We can’t live a life of sin and the complain about the lack of supernatural deliverance in our lives. Daniel was confident of God’s protection because Daniel was in a right relationship with his heavenly Father.
Let me give you a list of things to do NOW to prepare for any future overnight stay in the lion’s den:
- Read your Bible before you arrive in the lions’ den.
- Have a disciplined prayer time before the lions line up at your door.
- Keep your focus on the Word of God during a crisis.
- Keep an excellent spirit at all times.
- Have faith that the Word will work for you.
- Look to God for deliverance.
- Give God the glory for your deliverance.
