SPRING FORTH NOW 2023
“While I was pouring out my heart, baring my sins and the sins of my people Israel, praying my life out before my God, interceding for the holy mountain of my God—while I was absorbed in this praying, the humanlike Gabriel, the one I had seen in an earlier vision, approached me, flying in like a bird about the time of evening worship. “He stood before me and said, ‘Daniel, I have come to make things plain to you. You had no sooner started your prayer when the answer was given. And now I’m here to deliver the answer to you. You are much loved! So listen carefully to the answer, the plain meaning of what is revealed:
Daniel 9:20-23 (MSG)
God Is With You even when you do not see Him, can trace Him, or believe that He is there. Daniel, who sought God to aid Him, to be with Him, did understand that God who loved Him, had not forsaken, abandoned, or did not hear Him, God was there, and as we all must, keep preserving, pressing toward God. As Daniel pressed and God revealed Himself in his midst, a messenger, an angel, revealed to Daniel that before he even began His prayers, God had already dispatched His answer to and for Him. God was and is always there and He readies His answer, His revelation at the right time, in due season, and God does the same for you and me. God Is With You, no matter what it looks like or even if it appears He has forsaken you, He has not, He is setting up your deliverance in your midst, working it out for your good, right where you are so that you can live, move, and have your being with Him, a Most Favored Status.
