And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions? — Daniel 6:20
Several months ago, I was on the phone with a friend who was in distress. They were facing an overwhelming amount of challenges in life. They had recently lost a loved one, were facing sickness, and facing some major choices in their life. While we were talking, they made the statement, “I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.”
There are many times our lives may feel like this. There are so many times when we aren’t just hit with one challenge or difficulty, but many at the same time. It seems that when we turn one way or the other, we are surrounded by the things that would consume us.
Certainly, Daniel was surrounded in the lion’s den by things that could easily consume him. He was no match for the things that he was facing. When the king came to the den of lions, he asked Daniel a question. Is your God able?
It’s thrilling to know that not only is our God able, but He has done it time and again! From the beginning of time, God has tamed the lions of life that have sought to devour. He has tamed the lion of depression, sickness, sorrow, heartache, loss, and the list goes on and on!
If you find yourself facing the lions of life, don’t doubt God. He is able to tame the lions, protecting you and helping you make it through, just like Daniel. While the world may ask, “Is your God able,” face the circumstances with confidence. He has done it before and He will do it again!
