In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day from Mark Batterson / Family Christian
Mark Batterson's book was my first introduction to this gifted writer's material.  Since then I've devoured most of the books and articles that he has written.  "In a Pit..." continues to be my favorite because it deals with a fairly obscure personality who found a place in God's Book because of his confidence and bravery in extremely dangerous situations.  As I read this article, I was reminded of the fact that there are times in all our lives when we wonder why God put us in a particular situation.  The reality is that God never abandons us in the sticky situations, He is merely helping us to discover that He has uniquely equipped us to deal with them and emerge victorious.
Benaiah was not lion hunting the day that he encountered the ferocious feline.  We aren't usually on the lookout for a confrontation when suddenly God drops us into a tenuous situation. However, we must remember that God is never surprised or caught off-guard.  Grab your spear and run toward the lion.  God has your back.
