|Daniel's Answer to the King, Briton Riviere (1840-1920)|
|Daniel in the Den of Lions, Francois Verdier|
Not only did an angel of the Lord turn the lions into lambs, but God restored his faithful servant Daniel to his rightful position within the King's government. His jealous rivals, who prepared Daniel for a lion's portion, ended up serving his fate by satisfying the appetite of the starving den. A good lesson in karma, what you put out there, comes back to you.
The painting of Daniel at the window, looking outward and upward to God, paints a vivid picture that gives me strength during dark times. The next time you feel anxious about a seemingly hopeless situation, look at Daniel, and remember his story. Against all odds, he survived a night in the den of hungry lions and was rescued by an angel. When we keep on looking to God with faith and turn away from growling fear of a situation about to swallow us up, victory will come, if we can stay focused on Him in gratitude, love and obedience.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
