Regarding these similarities, the Bible gave us an inspiring example of a young girl that was just like her father: Achsah, Caleb’s daughter.Continue reading “ACHSAH: THE YOUNG WOMAN THAT BLOOMED IN THE DESERT”
The word “comparison” is from the Latin “comparare”, formed by “com”, that means “together”, and “parare”, which means “to pair, place side by side to observe the differences”. Sometimes, such attempts to put ourselves next to our neighbours to see such differences can be prejudicial, causing setbacks. In Genesis 4, the Bible tells us a great example of this: Cain and Abel’s story. As God pleased himself with Abel and his offer (Genesis 4:4), Cain felt inferior, which made him feel envy and jealousy in his heart, leading him to kill his brother (Genesis 4:8).
When the need for comparison is fed, negative feelings begin enslaving you until the point of fully consuming you, blinding you to all that God has done, does and will do for you.
The bad day certainly comes. This is a necessary moment that all of us, Christians, must go through. It’s a period of suffering in our lives so God can prove us and get to know what’s in our hearts (Deut. 8:2). So, how to prepare ourselves for the bad day?
Throughout the Bible, there’s no shortage of passages in which God’s commandment is to go. In Genesis, God tells Abraham to leave his father’s house and go to the land that God would show him; in Mark, Jesus tells the apostles to go throughout the world preaching the gospel to every living creature; in Mathew, the “go” is to teach every nation to observe His Word, and also to baptise. As we can see, it is common for God to tell us to go; however, how are we supposed to react when He tells us to stop?
When I was a kid, I always listened to the story of Jonah and thought:
Why didn’t Jonah obey the Lord? What was his difficulty in obeying and going to the city of Nineveh? Didn’t Jonah know God enough to realize that He is powerful and knows all things?
These questions stayed in my head for a long time, and only after prayer and experience with the Lord I realized what, in fact, the story is about: the heart of Jonah and the heart of the city of Nineveh.
There is no doubt that Daniel was blessed and guarded by God, as we can see in his book. In this text, we will emphasize what happened in the Lion’s Den. Just like Daniel, how many Dens have we already entered and over which the Lord made us victorious? How many deliverances has the Lord provided us? We’ll talk about that!
