Not out of Circumstances but Through Circumstances
God doesn’t change His plans for His people just because an unexpected set of difficult circumstances have arisen. Though surrounded by lions, Daniel was completely unharmed. The lions did not function like lions – they were present, they were still lions with all the capabilities of lions but did not function like lions as long as Daniel was present. It would be difficult in this setting to say that Daniel was not manifested. All through the Bible people were preserved and manifested regardless of undesirable circumstances, even impossible circumstances. They were not removed from the circumstances but manifested participants in those altered circumstances (Cf. Esther). Regardless the apparent circumstances, God brought His people through and He has not retired from bringing His people through triumphantly.
