The Living God

O Daniel, servant of the living God,
is thy God whom thou servest continually,
able to deliver thee?
Daniel 6:20

How many times we find this expression in the Scriptures,
and yet it is just this very thing
that we are so prone to lose sight of.
We know it is written “the living God“;
but in our daily life there is scarcely anything
we practically so much lose sight of as
the fact that God is the living God;
that He is now whatever
He was three or four thousand years since;
that He has the same sovereign power,
the same saving love towards those who love
and serve Him as ever He had
and that He will do for them now
what He did for others two, three, four thousand years ago,
simply because He is the living God, the unchanging One.
Oh, how therefore we should confide in Him,
and in our darkest moments never lose sight of the fact
that He is still and ever will be the living God!

Be assured,
if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him,
He will never fail you.
An older brother who has known the Lord for forty-four years,
who writes this, says to you for your encouragement
that He has never failed him.
In the greatest difficulties,
in the heaviest trials,
in the deepest poverty and necessities,
He has never failed me;
but because I was enabled by His grace to trust Him
He has always appeared for my help.
I delight in speaking well of His name.
–George Mueller

For I am the LORD,
I change not;
Malachi 3:6
