How many of us have been in a virtual Lions Den? Just when you think you are following your path in life. You have been obedient to God. You treat people the way they should be treated. You are maintaining a Godly life. But the haters come out in droves. They devise traps, leans, lies etc etc. And just like that something comes up those that have been in your corner, seem far and distant. You are penalized for the sake of the "rules". Your punishment is the Lions Den. A place where you are all alone(or so it seems). A place where those haters are looking in saying "yeah, we have him or her this time". A place that seems so hostile you look around and say to yourself, "God this can't be real". God's actions state 'No son it is not" . You find yourself at ease, because God is with you. You know in your heart that you have done all things right the best you could. When all the dust settles those that believe in you still do. The haters are sent away tails tucked and your battle continues. However your heart and your mind have been reinforced with the notion that God is on your side and will remain so as long as you want him.
John 5:14-15 This is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
