The God of Daniel

September 22 2013It’s amazing how much Daniel and his faith influenced King Darius.

The king could easily see Daniel’s integrity and faith.   He didn’t want to put Daniel in the lion’s den.  He was tricked into it.

King Darius couldn’t sleep that night as he worried about Daniel and the lions.  He was overjoyed when Daniel was still alive the next morning and he made sure everyone knew it.

King Darius was so impressed by Daniel’s faith that he issued a decree telling the people in all parts of his kingdom that they needed to honor and fear the God of Daniel.

What a witness Daniel had!  The light and truth of God shown through Daniel so clearly that the King saw it.  And the King knew where this was coming from.

May our witness shine as brightly, dear Father!
