Good day everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of all of our praise. The message this morning is coming from the book of Daniel in which he realized that he couldn’t do anything on his own power. May this bless someone in the place they find themselves.

Today’s Prayer

Father, You have a way of humbling us, of bringing us as a nation to our knees. Then and only then do we realize how completely we must depend on You. Forgive us for forgetting, and for making money, riches, and material gain our top priorities. Bring us back to the reality of being Your people, and of walking in FAITH. You alone are our source, our provider, our security, and our God. In the wonderful name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

An Encounter With God

So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision, I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. ~ Daniel 10:8

Daniel received a vision that troubled him greatly. He wanted understanding of this vision. He set himself out to understand the vision by fasting for three weeks. Three days after his three weeks of fasting, a messenger of God appeared to Daniel. The messenger explained that Heaven had heard his prayer from the first day, but the angel was temporarily prevented from coming by the prince of Persia, a demon angel, who sought to thwart God’s messenger from coming to Daniel.

There are times in our lives when we must set ourselves to seeking God with all our hearts. It is in these times that we hear from Heaven in ways we may never have experienced before. Daniel’s perseverance in prayer was rewarded with a personal encounter with Heaven. However, in order to receive from God, Daniel had to be left alone, have his strength removed, and be placed in a helpless condition. When we have no ability in our own strength to move Heaven or the events around us, we are in position to hear from Heaven. It is the acknowledgment of our humanity and our frailness that places us in a position to have a personal encounter with the living God.

Do you need a personal encounter with God today? Do you need God to intervene on your behalf? Seek Him with all your heart. Demonstrate to Him you are serious. Get alone and acknowledge your helpless condition before Him. He will reward you with His presence.

Quote of the Day

Once you look at the cross, you can’t look at anything else, no matter how horrid it appears, and infer that God’s intention is to do us harm. The truth is that God is good.
