Re:Verse passage – Daniel 6:1-28 (day six)

The disciples did not even bother rushing to the tomb the next morning. Jesus was dead, and the tomb was sealed. It was final; hopeless.

But Darius arose in haste to see if Daniel’s God had indeed delivered him from the lions. Even Darius knew that while he, the king, was unable to rescue Daniel, God was able.

Isn’t that the Easter story; the good news?

When there seems to be no way, God is able. When our hands our tied, God is able. When it looks like the enemy has won, God is able. When it looks like death is the victor and the tomb is sealed, God is able.

The disciples would soon discover the able-ness of God for themselves, and they would never be the same.

May we live and rest in the able-ness of God. That’s Gospel kind of living.
