Theme: The Lord, My refuge
Text: Daniel 6:15-27
20 When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?” (V20)
I had a conversation with a friend some few days ago. Then we chanced upon this extract that I thought I could share today.
“An earthquake shakes the foundation of our security; a tornado blows away a lifetime of treasures; an assassin’s bullet changes national history; a drunk driver claims an innocent victim; a divorce shatters a home; terrorism frightens a nation. International and personal tragedies make our world seem a personal tragedies make our world seem a fearful place, overflowing with evil and seemingly out of control. And the litany of bombings, coups, murders, and natural disasters could cause us to think that God is absent or impotent. “Where is God” we cry, engulfed by sorrow and despair” (Life Application Study Bible, NLT, pg. 1374).
The life of Daniel and his three friends reassures us that God is and will always be with us. We will face troubles, but our escape route is always assured.
