HEAVEN WILL NOT DESERT YOU

 

     Dan 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a word was revealed to Daniel, who was named Belteshazzar. And the word was true, and it was a great conflict. And he understood the word and had understanding of the vision. Dan 10:2 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three weeks Dan 10:3 I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, for the full three weeks.  Dan 10:4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river (that is, the Tigris) Dan 10:5 I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. Dan 10:6 His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a multitude. Dan 10:7 And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great trembling fell upon them, and they fled to hide themselves. Dan 10:8 So I was left alone and saw this great vision, and no strength was left in me. My radiant appearance was fearfully changed, and I retained no strength. Dan 10:9 Then I heard the sound of his words, and as I heard the sound of his words, I fell on my face in deep sleep with my face to the ground. Dan 10:10 And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. Dan 10:11 And he said to me, "O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Dan 10:12 Then he said to me, "Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humbled yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words. Dan 10:13 The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia, Dan 10:14 and came to make you understand what is to happen to your people in the latter days. For the vision is for days yet to come."(ESV)

 

 

 

 

I do not know about you, but there have been many times in my life when I have felt deserted. It looked as though no prayers where answered and every person that I knew had abandoned me.  If my own husband seemed to not understand what I needed or when, it just seemed that no one cared.  What I began to realize however is that God always hears our prayers.  Sometimes, all we can do is mourn and He alone hears and understands even that.  As difficult as that may be for us to understand, God never leaves His children without an answer to even the most minute’ question or circumstance.

 

Daniel said in verse 2 & 3, In those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three weeks. 3 I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, for the full three weeks. He was agonizing over the vision that he had, yet received no answer from the Lord.  Sometimes, God wants to see just how faithful we will be while we are in the circumstance or situations.  What will we do while we are waiting and how will we wait?  For a lot of us, it seems we get impatient or give up, hopeless as if God did not or would not answer our prayers.  I just want to assure you today that Heaven does not desert us. Your family might desert you, your co-workers, husband, wife, children, but not God.  The enemy comes to try and convince us that there will not be an answer, give it up, why wait, stop praying, its too late, you are too old, you do not have enough experience, or you don’t have enough money and the list goes on and on.  God wants us to remember that we fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers of darkness of this world, and sometimes, it does take time for the answers to manifest themselves in the natural.  Waiting for the manifestation of God’s answer is one of our greatest pitfalls. We do not want to wait.  We want to pray it and get an instant answer, God may sometimes do that because He can, however, He also wants us to believe first that we have received that which we have asked and wait for it. Heaven is open for us to access daily.  We can go boldly before the throne of God and receive mercy in the time of need. In Dan 10:9 Then I heard the sound of his words, and as I heard the sound of his words, I fell on my face in deep sleep with my face to the ground. Dan 10:10 And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.  Sometimes, God needs us to be in a certain position before we can hear from Him.  We want to remain where and how we are and still hear from God, not so. It says in verses 10-13 10:1 And he said to me, "O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Dan 10:12 Then he said to me, "Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humbled yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words. Dan 10:13 The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia,

    

   Beloved ones of God, if you have heard nor listened to anything else that I have said to you today, please hear this; God not only hears your cry, but He hears it the first time that you call.  In addition to that, He hears your words, you might get somebody else to pray for you, but God hears your words.  Additionally, He sends the angles of Glory to hasten with your answers.  They may get held up, delayed, detained, intervened with, and even temporarily interrupted, however, they will never be late.  God does not delay in hearing His children.  Look at your neighbor and tell them, neighbor, Heaven does not Desert Us!!
