..Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear noevil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 KJV
There is a myth in much of Christianity that once you become a follower of Jesus
you are protected from tough times. People interpret the abundant life that Jesus
promises as if His role is to insulate us from the hard realities of life, but it just
doesnt happen that way. For those who trust in Jesus, we echo what David wrote
when he penned those famous words in the 23rd Psalm.
Note that David, the author of Psalm 23, didnt write, IF I walk through the
valley Rather, he exclaims even though. Hard times are inevitable and to
be anticipated. It is part of what it means to live in a broken world.
There was a young man who went through horrendously hard times in his life. His
name was Daniel, and his story can be found in the book of the Old Testament that
bears his name. One of the most well-known stories about Daniels life is when he
took a courageous stand for God and ended up at the bottom of a lions den as a
result. Even though King Darius respected Daniel, he had violated the kings law
and was quickly sent to the lions den to suffer a certain death. Daniel was
thrown to the lions, but he did not die. Instead, God delivered him. The king
was so astounded by the way God protected Daniel that the king himself came to
acknowledge Him as his own God.
While we may never have to face being thrown to actual lions, hard times will
come that threaten all we hold dear. We can trust in God or we can allow the
challenges to overcome us. When you are experiencing hard times, make God your
highest priority. Build the foundation of your life on Him.
We dont have to face tough times alone. God has put people in your life to
encourage and support you. As Peter said in his New Testament letter, ..Humbleyourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in duetime: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7KJV.)This means that humble yourselves under the mighty power of God and He willhonor and bless you."
With your trust placed firmly in God and His power to deliver, you too can survive
the lions you face.
