The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
He is our Strength
When the king heard this, he was greatly distressed; he was determined to rescue Daniel and made every effort until sundown to save him. Daniel 6:14
On Friday, we studied about making decisions and today we see that King Darius had made a an impulsive decision which cost him, his most favoured leader to be thrown into the den of lions
The story goes on to say that the king in all his authority tried his level best to repel the decree that he signed but he could not withdraw the judgement that he himself has established.
This can happen in our lives too. When we make incorrect decisions out of impulsiveness, it can lead us into situations that bring unrest and turmoil into our lives that we may not be able to revert even if we try with all our power and strength. Though the King did not know the living God of Daniel, relied on his own strength, Daniel’s exemplary life witnessed to him the power of God.
King Darius was able to see the Living God in Daniel life and therefore he was able to trust ‘ The God of Daniel’ even though he did not know Him.
Can we also live lives like Daniel so that others could see Jesus in us?
Dear Lord I thank you for this day, Let my life reflect Your character so that others may see Jesus in me and come to know the power of living a life in total reliance in You. Amen
