This was laid heavily on my heart today.
Many of you are being attacked by the enemy by many different means. It could be your finances, your health, your family, your peace of mind, or just every day circumstances that cause us to get down.
You feel as if you are in the lion’s den like Daniel was. Know this, you are not there of your own accord. “Oh no!” says God. “You walk in Grace and by the Spirit.”
But the enemy has sent his best minions to stop your testimony and your praise. He wants to stop you from opening your mouth and giving God Glory!
But here is what I heard, Beloved. You are in HIS Lion’s Den. You are in the Den of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! Though you may feel surrounded by the enemy,Yahweh GOD has you surrounded! He is your Fierce Protector!
He is SHUTTING THE MOUTHS of the lying lions and LIFTING you out of their den! You dwell in the Lion’s Den, not the den of thieves.
And NO WOUNDS whatsoever shall be found on you, because you have trusted in your God! Even your enemies shall be at peace with you! The thief comes but to kill steal and destroy, Jesus came to bring you LIFE and LIFE ABUNDANTLY!
“Beloved. The enemy goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. But it will not be you, My Child.
You have put your trust in Me. For I AM He who stands by you and strengthens you. You shall be delivered from the mouth of the evil lion and I will rescue you from every evil action. He has no dominion over you.
You dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High. You dwell in My Lion’s Den. It is a Place of Safety. It is a Place of Rest.
There is NO FEAR here. I give My Angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. My Angels shall shut the mouths of the lions.
The God of Glory thunders over you. Those who touch you touch the Apple of My Eye. You are not alone, Beloved.
There is fear in the enemy’s camp tonight! All they hear is the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!
They say you are guilty, I have proclaimed you innocent! All the handwriting that was against you has been nailed to the cross!
You have overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony! Fear not the empty threats. I have you surrounded!
The world is beginning to feel the shaking of the soon coming King! The Sound of Heaven is setting the captives free!
Rest in the knowledge that He who gave His Life for you will also deliver you from this present circumstance.
This is a war that has been won! Fear only The LORD and watch the enemy fall into his own pit! Rejoice, My Daughters and My Sons! The LORD is a Warrior, Yahweh is His Name!
I AM your Deliverer, My Child. For i go forth on your behalf; like a Mighty One; I stir up My Zeal like a Warrior.
I shall shout, yes — even now I ROAR in triumph over your enemies!”
DEN : A shelter or resting place; a quiet or private room; a hiding place.
“My God sent His angel and shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, for I was found innocent in His sight, and I have done no wrong against you, O king.” The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den, and when Daniel was lifted out of the den, no wounds whatsoever were found on him, because he had trusted in his God.” Daniel 6:22-23.
“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” Psalm 18:2.
“The LORD goes forth like a Mighty One; He stirs up His zeal like a warrior. He shouts; yes, He ROARS in triumph over His enemies,” Isaiah 42:13.
“But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message would be fully proclaimed, and all the Gentiles would hear it. So I was delivered from the mouth of the lion. And the Lord will rescue me from every evil action and bring me safely into His heavenly kingdom. To Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.…” 2 Timothy 4:17-18.
“Who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions,” Hebrews 11:33.
“David added, “The LORD, who delivered me from the claws of the lion and the bear, will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” “Go,” said Saul, “and may the LORD be with you.”” 1 Samuel 17:37.
“Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:26-29.
