DEVOTION: “In one sense the mouths of the lions were shut when Daniel was in the den, and yet, in another sense they were shut even before that. The lions’ mouths were shut when the decree forbidding prayer to anyone except the king was signed and when Daniel trusted in God to deliver him. (See Daniel 6:1-23). You will find that the victory occurs at the moment you open the door of your heart to believing.” (pg 169)
Yesterday we were speaking about fear. Today we’re speaking about fear.
Just a different kind of fear. You see, this statement and this story speaks volumes about fear. The fear that would have paralyzed and crippled any ordinary man or woman is the same fear that Daniel overcame…because of Jesus. His faith, hope and trust in Jesus stifled the fear. Overcame the fear. Conquered the fear.
The mouths of the lions were shut when Daniel trusted God to deliver him.
Can you see the mouths of the lions today? Are they roaring at you? Is fear gripping all that you are today?
The Spirit of God in you is stronger than all of it. We just need to believe. We just need to trust.
Victory occurs at the moment you open the door of your heart to believing.
