How many times have we looked over our lives and find situations that are unchangeable. Maybe so bad that we dare not entertain the idea of attempting to make them better. ‘Cause if left as is, maybe no one will notice how horrible they are? Or maybe through the superpower of ignorance…..it’ll disappear?
The bible story of Daniel explains how-as unfortunate circumstances arise, Satan attempts to CO-SIGN on those circumstances, to guarantee your situation will not change! Daniel a servant of God, made a decision to go against the status quo and serve the one and only true God. In doing so, he was thrown into a lion’s den never to be seen again! Daniel 6:16-17; So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the lions’ den. The king said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!” A stone was brought and placed over the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the rings of his nobles, so that Daniel’s situation might not be changed.
Bam! Daniel is a goner! Not only was a heavy stone placed as a barrier, but the King and the nobles, co-signed on Daniel’s situation, to guarantee it would not change. But a loving God had a different plan for Daniel. No matter what others did to ensure his demise…God wouldn’t allow anyone to co-sign on his fate. Daniel 6:22; My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in His sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, your Majesty. (NIV)
Even when the world has co-signed on your situation, saying that it will not change, have the faith of Daniel, knowing that God can change any situation. Bad credit, death, personal hurt, financial distress, hopelessness, depression, self loathing, greed, despair, pride, anything that seems insurmountable…..GOD CAN RESCUE YOU FROM THE MOUTH OF THE LION. As a matter of fact, he has already done so through the blood of Jesus. Jesus died for us so that in any situation, His selfless act of love can redeem us for sin. So there’s no need for a co-signer! We’ve got this!
