“And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?” (Daniel 6:20).
How many times we find this expression in the Scriptures, and yet it is just this very thing that we are so prone to lose sight of. We know it is written “the living God”; but in our daily life, there is scarcely anything we practically so much lose sight of as the fact that God is the living God; that He is now whatever He was three or four thousand years since; that He has the same sovereign power, the same saving love towards those who love and serve Him as ever He had and that He will do for them now what He did for others two, three, four thousand years ago, simply because He is the living God, the unchanging One. Oh, how therefore we should confide in Him, and in our darkest moments never lose sight of the fact that He is still and ever will be the living God!
Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you. I am an older brother who has known the Lord for forty-four years, I write this, for your encouragement that He has never failed me. In the greatest difficulties, in the heaviest trials, in the deepest poverty and necessities, He has never failed me; but because I was enabled by His grace to trust Him He has always appeared for my help. I delight in speaking well of His name.
Luther was once found at a moment of peril and fear, when he had a need to grasp unseen strength, sitting in an abstracted mood tracing on the table with his finger the words, “Vivit! vivit!” (“He lives! He lives!”). It is our hope for ourselves, and for His truth, and for mankind. Men come and go; leaders, teachers, thinkers speak and work for a season, and then fall silent and impotent. He abides. They die, but He lives. They are lights kindled, and, therefore, sooner or later quenched; but He is the true light from which they draw all their brightness, and He shines forevermore.
When I came to know Patriarch Dr. Granville Williams of the Sons of God Apostolic Spiritual Baptist Church. I learned from him that what he counted his greatest spiritual asset was his unvarying consciousness of the actual presence of Jesus. Nothing bore him up so, he said, as the realization that Jesus was always with him in actual presence; and that this was so independent of his own feelings, independent of his deserts, and independent of his own notions as to how Jesus would manifest His presence.
“Moreover, he said that Christ was the home of his thoughts. Whenever his mind was free from other matters it would turn to Christ; and he would talk aloud to Christ when he was alone–on the street, anywhere–as easily and naturally as to a human friend. So real to him was Jesus’ actual presence.
A man with an experience that many have longed to meet and didn’t have the opportunity. I am blessed to have met this man of God. I learned much from him and I am still encouraged to walk in the fear of the Lord as he taught his congregation.
You can be in a better position today if you will join me in meeting the Son God who came to save sinners o whom I am the chief among you. Today if you will hear His voice I urge you not to harden your hearts, but turn your life over to Him and let the Lord be the Master of your life.
Thank you or allowing me to visit your homes, your car, job to deliver a message to you daily. May Almighty God be the Lord of our life today.
