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:

  1. Read your Bible before you arrive in the lions’ den.
  2. Have a disciplined prayer time before the lions line up at your door.
  3. Keep your focus on the Word of God during a crisis.
  4. Keep an excellent spirit at all times.
  5. Have faith that the Word will work for you.
  6. Look to God for deliverance.
  7. Give God the glory for your deliverance.
