I love chapter 6 of Daniel, where the administrators and satraps tried to find grounds to discredit Daniel, to find charges against him for his conduct in the way he handled government affairs, but they could find absolutely none. They could find no corruption in Daniel for he was a man of integrity, trustworthy, without corruption or negligence. There words were “We will never find any basis for charges against this man unless it has something to do with the law of his God.” Even there they could not find a problem so they set Daniel up with a 30 day decree regarding whom the people to could pray too. As a result of the 30 day decree Daniel is thrown into the lion’s den. But as we all know… no harm came to Daniel for the Lord God was with Him.
What a testimony! As a result King Darius came to recognize God as the one true God (Daniel 6:26).
Imagine what our lives would be like if we had the prayer life of Daniel. I can’t speak for you, but I know my life would be very much different.
Until next time – Be encouraged
