I opened to Daniel this morning and I was drawn to a portion I had highlighted from a previous reading. For me it’s such a beautiful reminder that God IS LISTENING! Not Only that, but He Answers.
Then he said to me, “Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words.
Do Not Be Afraid! Your God is on the job!
From The FIRST DAY that he set his heart on understanding, Daniel’s words were heard. From the first day!
I love that reassurance. Then a little further down in Dan 10:19 Daniel is told again Do not be afraid. Peace be strong now, be strong.
His response comes with His Presence. His Peace whispers do not be afraid, it opens our hearts to His counsel. It leads us into a rest. His Strength lifts us into a secure and fortified position. Our feet are set secure and Firm on His Name!
The Lord Continues to remind us all through out the scriptures to Seek Him and to remember that He is a God of deliverance.
Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the LORD.”
I Am with you.. To Deliver you.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
When the Lord is In our Midst there is no reason to fear. He wants us to Boldly come to the throne. It was His doing that made that possible.
14Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us 16Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
I hope That whoever reads this today is blessed with the understanding that His Love is For You. May you come to His throne with Confidence. He is Listening, come KNOWING That He Will Answer!
