Master’s lap


Daniel 6:10”Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously.”


Daniel “knew that the writing was signed,” yet he did not say a word or do anything other than walk into his prayer room. Remarkable attitude! His silence, patience and reticence revealed his faith in ‘his God.’ Nothing could shake him. Daniel walked with poise and dignity, “he went home into his prayer room and gave thanks to God as was his custom”. This is awesome! Just because he was neck deep in trouble, he did not run away from God, but instead he daringly ran towards His Master’s lap. What do we do when in trouble? Do we run to God like Daniel? God watched every bit of his action, attitude and faith and rewarded him according to his faith. God shut the  mouth of the lions when Daniel was thrown into the lions’ den, glory to Jesus!


During one of my train journey, a passenger kept looking into the papers inside a big packet, he kept reading the reports and then kept blankly looking outside, as the train passed lush, fresh green fields, towns and villages. Since it was a good 13 hours journey, everybody kept themselves occupied. I was seated next to him and as usual I was meditating on the Word I had to preach the next day and simultaneously I was looking for a conducive time to preach to someone in the compartment. Surprisingly this man started a conversation with me on a general subject, slowly I diverted the topic to Jesus and narrated the miraculous healing I received from Jesus. He gave me undivided attention and listened to me intently; throughout our conversation, I could feel and see fear in his eyes. After hearing my miraculous and wonderful testimony, he was encouraged to share about his life. He had just the previous day received the doctor’s report stating that his sugar level was very high and it was dangerous for his health.


He immediately pulled out all the papers from the big packet that he held close to him and showed it to me. I now understood the reason behind his fear and comforted him to trust Jesus and not to keep peering over the doctor’s report. I gave him a copy of my devotional book and also encouraged him to read my devotions from the website. When I told him that I would pray for him, instantly his face brightened. The Word of God has power to drive away fear, depression and oppression! I was glad to be in that compartment and breathe life into a person who was filled with the fear of death. I am not talking about faith in yoga, faith in self, but today I am talking about faith in Jesus. Mark 11:22 says, So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God.” That’s it! Apostle Paul said, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”( 2 Corinthians 5:7) Don’t keep looking at your deteriorating health, dipping finances, your rebellious children, gloomy atmosphere or your sinking marriage; but shift your focus today and look up at the Mighty God who is able to set right your life. Amen. I am speaking life to someone out there! He is your deliverer, He is your Redeemer, He is your Savior, He is your Healer and He is your Comforter and Counselor. Come on, cheer up!
