Again, the person who looked like a human touched me, and I became stronger. He said, “Don’t be afraid. You are highly respected. Everything is alright! Be strong! Be strong!”
As he talked to me, I became stronger. I said, “Sir, tell me what you came to say. You have strengthened me.” Daniel 10:18-19
Daniel was pregnant with vision and didn’t know it. He’d never birthed anything before, yet his spirit cried out. 21 days of labor that grew in intensity. Until one day the angel of the Lord stood before him with a word from God.
Daniel began with a desire to understand. He humbled himself before God and cried out. It says that the very first day, God heard and sent the angel with a message but he was detained by Satan who was trying to keep the answer from him. He even had to send for angelic interference so that he could get to Daniel with the message.
I sense there are many around the world who are waiting for an answer. You’ve cried out day after day after day and felt as if God has turned a deaf ear to your cries. My friend, you couldn’t be further from the truth! He has heard and has already sent the answer.
There is something about sitting in the presence of the Lord and allowing His voice to speak into your spirit that causes strength to come. Moments of deep intercession that drain you are instantly infused with unspeakable peace. In this season of waiting, allow the Spirit of God who is in you to strengthen you.
I have a word for you in the form of a song my mom often sings:
“Oh yes the answers on the way this I know! Jesus said it, I believe it and it’s so. Our heavenly Father knows our need before we pray, and we can rest assured, the answers on the way!”
Thank You Father for the answer! Thank You that even when the cares of this life and the deceitfulness of riches try to drown out Your voice, I hear You whisper, “Hold on child, it’s almost here!” Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path, showing me which direction to take and which to avoid. I will wait in Your presence for that is where my help comes from. It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen
