Faithful Even In The Midst of Trouble

“Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.” Daniel 6:10 (NIV).

Daniel was doing fine in Jerusalem until king Nebuchadnezzar besieged it and took everyone into exile, including him. Then Daniel and some others were trained to serve the king in his court. While there, Daniel’s three friends were thrown into a fiery furnace. And what happened? They prayed to their God, the Lord Almighty, and nothing happened to them!!! They came out without wounds or burns.

Daniel kept his allegiance to the Lord, and he developed a gift for interpreting dreams. In all the troubles Daniel faced, God honored His faithfulness. Because the people were envious about his gifts and the fact that the king liked Daniel, some guys plotted against him. What’s next… right? He got sent to the lion’s den. All night long Daniel was shut in the den with those lions and not one of them harmed him. Daniel came out without scratches or bruises.

Get the picture? Daniel remained faithful to the Lord, and God honored him. He got into trouble, and God saw that he came out unharmed. Trials will always come, but if we remain faithful, God will see us through. Let’s look to Him; let’s seek Him; let’s be like Daniel, and not be ashamed to get down on our knees when trouble comes.

“Lord, sometimes we just get too scared about the lions and forget that You can shut their mouths and make them look like small kittens. Help us to trust in You like Daniel did and to not be afraid of fire or beasts, because we serve a God for whom nothing is impossible.”

For His Glory

  1. How easy it is for us to forget that God can walk us through any valley, no matter how deep it may appear, to safety. All I have to do is look up! How many times have i taken a walk through the woods deep in thought and suddenly realize I have no clue where i was as I look around at the hills all around me and then I look up, realize I just need to walk up that path to the top of the hill to see where I am to discover I was on the other side of the hill from our neighbor’s place.
