My God Sent His Angel


Daniel was a man who trusted God.

In the Old Testament account, we find that Daniel was sentenced to be thrown into a den of lions because of an underhanded plot by jealous men.

By a series of carefully thought out procedures, even the king could not save Daniel from the sentence.

Daniel was thrown into the den and a stone was rolled over the opening.

The king, not wanting Daniel to be harmed, did not eat or sleep the entire night—–

Then, at break of day, the king arose and went in haste to the den of lions. As he came near to the den where Daniel was, he cried out in a tone of anguish. The king declared to Daniel, “O Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” 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.”  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 6:19-23

God was able to keep the lions from hurting Daniel.

In the very company of danger, he was completely safe.

The size of the lions was of no consequence.

Whether they were hungry or not made no difference.

God is in control, no matter how dire the circumstances.

Whatever you are facing today, know that God is greater.

Trust in Him.
