“Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened.” (Daniel 10: 18, 19)
Daniel gained the strength he needed. This necessary and timely energy and confidence weren’t physical power or weapons or an army of people to help him out.
Daniel was empowered by the voice of Truth. These clear reminders of God’s presence came to him in a way that felt tangible and comforting. But it wasn’t a person that made Daniel feel strong. It was the comforting message. It was that reminder to Daniel that he was greatly beloved. Right away, that must have brought peace and renewal.
And he was told not to fear, to receive the natural benediction of peace that came from being loved by God, protected by His ever-conscious affection. And with this inspired revelation, Daniel received strength.
We, too, can listen for this Truth of ourselves and the care that is at the ready. At those times when we feel weak and incapable, we can let go of the gloom and the personal responsibility. We can be receptive to the Christ-Truth and let it speak to us. We can gratefully accept that we are greatly beloved, and so we need not fear. We can then feel the peace and the fortitude that is ours to experience in this moment and to refresh us for the next.
