".... But we have a Shepherd full of care, full of kindness, full of power, who has said, " I will seek that which was lost, and bind up that which was broken, and bring again that which was driven away, and will strengthen that which was sick."
How tender are these expressions, and how well fulfilled! His sheep feed in the midst of wolves, yet are preserved safe; for though they see Him not, His eyes and His heart are upon them. Do we wonder that Daniel was preserved in the lion's den? Why, it is a common case. Which of God's children have not cause to say, "My soul is among lions"? But the Angel of the covenant stops their mouths, or only permits them to gape and roar, to show their teeth, and what they would do, if they might; but they may not; they shall not bite and tear us at their own will.
Let us trust Him, and all shall be well."

I want to add something to this but because it is a common case to be among lions I'll just say amen and thank you Lord.

Thank you for reminding us the simplicity of the raw power of TRUTH when facing the ominous roar of a toothless lion.

Hi Fred:)

Amazing quote! And a lovely photo!

It is true that God, our Father, always gets us out of trouble. The biggest wolf is within ourselves. Every time we go against our conscience, we are in trouble. But God shows us a way out of all our difficulties otherwise we would not have lived so long overcoming so many problems and obstacles in our lives.

Have a nice day Fred:)
