Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God. Daniel 6:5
Daniel was a faithful follower of God, and the Pagan society knew this so they wanted to get rid of him for it.
So they made a law to ban praying to God for thirty days, they knew Daniel wouldn’t follow this law because he was faithful to God and not man.
Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. Daniel 6:11
Daniel prayed to God three times a day his entire life, his enemy knew when he prayed and watched him so they could convict him our there pagan laws.
Just like today it was Politically Incorrect to pray to God, but Daniel didn’t worry about offending man and trusted God to deliver him
Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.Daniel 6:16
The King knew that Daniel would be delivered from the Lion’s Den, because they remember when God delivered the 3 wise men from the Fiery Furnace.
How much faith do you have in God? Would you continue to be obedient to God even if it meant your life? Or do you bow down to our Pagan Society out of fear and persecution?
My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Daniel 6:22
After a day the King checked out Daniel and found him unharmed. Daniel declared he was delivered by God because he is righteous before God and The King
When God delivers you do you declare his Glory before others? Would you be found innocent before God?
I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. Daniel 6:26-27
The Pagan King was so impressed with the power and glory of God made a law that his Pagen Kingdom would fear and honor God. Because he knew that our God is the one true living God and ruler of the Heavens and The Earth.
Our Faith is being challenged today, just like in Daniels time, its politically incorrect to pray and talk about God. Just like Daniel, trust in the Lord, stay faithful and he will deliver you. And then your enemies will to declare God is the one true living God and his kingdom will not be destroyed in Jesus Name Amen
