|Daniel's Answer to the King, Briton Riviere (1840-1920)|
Not only did an angel of the Lord shut the mouths of the hungry lions, but God restored Daniel to his rightful position within the King's government. His jealous rivals, who prepared Daniel for a lion's meal, ended up being the ones who were served his fate.
Figuratively there are times in life where we may feel like Daniel, trapped in a situation with overwhelming odds against us. Our hungry lions may take the form of a health challenge, a loss of a loved one, financial struggles, or relationship betrayals. By following Daniel's example, looking away from the growling fears that are eager to swallow us up, we can turn to God and know that He has sent his angels to be with us. Victory will come in the morning.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
