Because He Trusted In God

Daniel 6:23 NIV, “…And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.”

Daniel was an exceptional person who stood out from the crowd. He was great at what he did, and his coworkers didn’t like it. They became envious of him because he was up for a promotion. Since there was no fault that they could find with his work ethics, they had to find another way to bring him down. So they basically decided to go after him for having faith in God.

They convinced the king to create an order that would take away Daniel’s right to pray to God. Then when they caught Daniel praying, he ended up being thrown into the lion’s den for punishment. Although Daniel spent the night in the den, God locked the jaws of the lions and Daniel was unharmed. You can read the whole story here: Daniel 6

Daniel’s situation is still so relevant today. There are people who will try and hold you back when they see you getting ahead or doing your best to serve God. They may even lie on you or try and turn others against you.

Sometimes we wonder why certain things happen, or why God is taking so long to bring justice. He always has a perfect plan, and nothing slips past His watchful eye. Daniel trusted in God to deliver him, and He did. God will do the same for you. No situation, no matter how out of control it may seem, is beyond God’s power. He is fully aware of the evil doers and their wicked schemes. He will intervene at the perfect time.

The “lions” that attempt to destroy you are already defeated by the Living God who never slumbers or sleeps (Psalm 121:4). Keep trusting in the Lord with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-6). The finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, has overcome the evil that is in this world (John 16:33).

  2. Amen Dawn…. love the post… this post has given me inspiration because you are right people do talk about you and wish for your downfall in life. I know I’ve been criticized by my own family about attending church and yes it has hurt my feelings at times but I’m not living for them I’m living for God and his son Jesus… like when I’m at church I get phone calls or texts but I have my phone off because that’s God’s Time… I’ll get a text that will say y’all at church lol or you don’t have to go to church every Sunday or bible study every Wednesday it’s what’s in your heart that matters church is just a building or they talk your children out of going to church so that’s why I’m saying this post inspires me.. Thank you Dawn… I will continue to Trust God… He will always be first… ❤️❤️

    1. Awww Sherita. Reading this brought tears to my eyes. I know it’s very painful what you are going through especially since it’s your family. I do understand from experience it’s hard when members of your family don’t understand your faith in Jesus. I’ve been meditating on 1 Peter chapter 4 this week. It discusses Living for God and also Suffering for Being a Christian. It has helped me. Please keep pressing on in Jesus and don’t give up the fight sis. I’m thankful we can encourage one another. I just prayed for you and will continue to remember you in prayer ❤️❤️❤️

  3. Very nice. And what is frightening is how few persons are mentioned as standing up for God during the Babylonian captivity. Most everyone bowed down to the golden statue. I feel very fortunate to know that there are many millions of fellow believers in this day and age.

    1. That’s true. Daniel being one of the few was very brave. We are fortunate to have the support of many Christians throughout the world. Thanks for sharing your thoughts 😊
