They have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before himDaniel 6:22
In the last post, I wrote about how the church responded to the pandemic with fear instead of faith. How they didn’t know the God who saves.
No kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.Daniel 6:23
How could Daniel trust God? He knew Him. He knew, even as heathen King Darius did, that God is one who “delivers and rescues.” God saves. It’s who He is. When God arrives on the earth in the flesh, His name is Jesus, which means God saves. It’s who He is.
Daniel also knew that God wasn’t punishing him for something by allowing this. He knew he was blameless before God. Do you know the same?
Again, if you don’t, you don’t know the God of the Bible. You may know about Him, but you don’t know Him. His children He washes clean of their sins and clothes them in the righteousness of Christ, a perfect righteousness. And He gives them the power to overcome temptation and sin. In fact, they becomes slaves of righteousness. They have to do the right thing.
They are blameless in God’s sight by the power and goodness and mercy and grace of God. They know it and are thankful. And they approach God’s throne with confidence and are accepted and welcomed and rewarded. They are saved!
