TEXT: DANIEL 6:1-23 (Please refer to your KJV Bible for Scripture reference)
KEY VERSE: EZEKIEL 14:14
Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.
Daniel was rewarded with promotion by the king of Babylon for his faithfulness and righteousness. This did not go down well with the princes who conspired against him. Though they could not find fault with Daniel except in matter of his God, they succeeded, and a decree was signed that no one should worship any God for 30 days except king Darius. Daniel 6:10 says, “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being opened in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime”. They found Daniel praying and reported to the king. When the king discovered it was a set up against Daniel, he made effort to save him but could not.
Daniel was cast into the den of lions but his righteousness spoke: the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting (Daniel 6:18). He went in haste unto the den of lions the following morning. A voice came from the den: the voice of the righteous, the voice of the holy, the voice of the one tried and found faithful, the voice of a man whose life is in the hand of God, under his everlasting arm. That voice sounded and said unto the king, “O king, live forever. My God hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before Him, innocence was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt” (Daniel 6:21-22).
Divine protection! Righteousness delivers from death. God Himself announced the righteousness and holiness of Daniel. Some people doubt these revelations and prophecies that we receive. They say, ‘Can God say that somebody is righteous? They are just telling lies.’ Believe God’s report. It is scriptural.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God approves and testifies of the righteousness of men.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Holiness unto the Lord is our watchword and song…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Nahum; Revelation 13
