DON’T FOCUS ON THE LIONS

Updated: Jan 26, 2019



Daniel 6:16, 21-22 (KJV)


16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou serves continually, he will deliver thee.


21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live forever.


22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: for as much as before him innocence was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.


“Your faith is where your focus is.”


If you focus on sorrow, pain, past, regrets etc.. Then you will remain in a state of despair. That’s going to be your outcome.


If you focus on what God says about your situation/circumstances, this will increase and build your faith and you will become victorious over life’s challenges.


DANIEL DID NOT FOCUS ON THE LIONS.

If you view things through the world’s point of view, then there lies your faith and your problem.

If you view things through God’s word, from a Kingdom perspective, then your faith will see you through, because God is faithful to do just what he said he would do!


DANIEL DID NOT FOCUS ON THE LIONS.

Find your view (Faith).

Here’s a problem, We view people, places and things, even church bldg’s, as holy.

But with God, time is holy.- God inhabits eternity and is not subject to time to get his work done before death as is the case with us. READ- 2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.


Daniel waited on the Lord…. In spite of the lions..

We should be encouraged to do the same as in Isaiah 40:31- But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


God has not forgotten about you as the world would like you to think, based on their actions….


READ- 2 Peter 3: 9 it reminds us, The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.


Our enemies know better than some Christians that God will come see about them and deliver them, because they fear Him more than believers do..


The lions are a diversion! DON’T FOCUS ON THE LIONS


READ the entire chapter, Daniel Chapter 6 - You will see that Daniel prospered in the reign of wicked rulers and so can you and I, because God showed Himself mighty, and the Kings had to decree it in ALL the land that God, is the living God!
