THEME FOR THE MONTH: His Divine Presence
TODAY’S TOPIC: His Preserving Presence
KEY TEXT: Dan. 3:1-30
KEY VERSE: Gen. 39:2a
“And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man”
The last time, we were looking at the presence of God that could lead. We know that the very presence of Yahweh offers so many benefits. One of such is protection. Jehovah keeps His own. Not one of those who trust in Him shall ever be moved.
Enjoy the lesson!
GOD DOES NOT JUST GRANT SAFETY; GOD IS SAFETY!
Many people run to men for protection. In schools and the society, young males join dirty cliques (sometimes, even cults) for the dual aims of recognition and protection. Scripture have called as foolish, any attempt to seek covering from mortals. Our safety, as Christians, is of the Lord. Read Isaiah 31:1-3. Consider the cry of Nebuchadnezzar, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” (Dan. 3:25). He noticed four persons in the fire. Because God was with the Hebrew boys, even Nebuchadnezzar observed that the boys had “no hurt”. Check out the story of Daniel in Dan. 6:22. An angel had to come into the den to shut the mouth of lions. Christians must see the God in them as safety. Read Ps. 91:1.
