The Bible is for a reason; teaching us that God never changes.
Imagine, punishment – being fed to lions. And the lions ‘fasted’ through the night. When the king who wrote the decree was allowed to call to Daniel – he answered. The more amaz was that the lions who ‘fasted’ were fed; the conspirators were thrown to the lions and they did not land on the ground before the lions pounced and devoured them – fast over!
God’s miraculous deliverance of Daniel from the lions in the lions’ den where he had been cast for worshipping the true God opened Nebuchadnezzar’s eyes to whose God was God. And he even issued a decree that all men in his vast kingdom give homage to the God of Daniel. Daniel’s faith and refusal to cease his regular daily devotions had resulted in the knowledge of God being spread throughout the land.
And we pray:
Let us not, O Lord, underestimate what You can do in us and through us. We do not know all of Your purposes for us, but we know that nothing is too hard for You to do. We pray for the steadfastness of soul to continue to pursue knowing You even in the face of resistance and the faith to believe that Your Word planted deep in us can strengthen us for even the most difficult tasks. Amen.
