The Living God is Among Us and He's Lord of All the Earth
I intended to write a meditation for you like I normally do—in 500 words or less—on the topic of our living God. You might like to refer to Joshua 3:10-11 to see in context those wonderful declarations that I used for the title. (I’ve linked it for you.)
But here’s the thing, my many words didn’t add a thing to the heart of the meditation.
The fact is, life is more like an encounter in a lions’ den than a stroll down a primrose path, and we need to equip ourselves with a holy faith in the Lord of all the earth to make this journey victorious.
So here’s the bottom line. It’s the question that the king called to Daniel when Daniel was still in the lion’s den.
O Daniel, servant of the living God, is your God, whom you serve continually, able to deliver you from the lions? Daniel 6:20b (KJ2000)
Let’s ask ourselves that question. Take out the name Daniel and fill in your own.
How we answer makes all the difference in how we live our lives.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3: 20-21 (NIV)
