Daniel was thrown into the lion's den because others were jealous and afraid of the success God gave to him. However, he was innocent, therefore, he was not at all scared. He had faith in God, whom he knew was his judge.
He defies the King by worshipping God, throw him in!
And that is actually the meaning of the name "Daniel" - God is my judge. God was Daniel's provider throughout his life, and also his judge, bringing justice to his innocence! Daniel knew he could call out to his God to provide for him!
"Save me from the lion’s mouth;From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me."(Psalm 22:21)
Daniel was "trustworthy and neither corrupt, nor negligent'. He was an exceptional administrator in his time, and prospered because of his God, who is our God - the God who provides.
My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths and they have not harmed me, inasmuch as I was found innocent before Him; and also toward you, O king, I have committed no crime.
Hallelujah Praise the God of Daniel, who saved him even from the mouths of the lions!
Deniel, I believe you are as courageous and God-loving as Daniel was! The bible has many more amazing stories I cannot wait to share with you, but let me also share a short personal story of mine!
The other day, I met some difficulty at work and needed help. I prayed to God continually about it, and one morning when I prayed in tongues, the Lord answered me by providing me a friend at work! This friend helped me with my project and relieved me of some burden! Indeed, our God is one who provides!
Psst, Deniel, before I end off, I shall let you in on a secret: I love art! I heard you love art too, do you like my comic strip letter? This is a form of art! I hope it opened your eyes to how amazing our Abba Father is. There are so many more stories and secrets I have to tell you. I cannot wait to hear from you! Let me know how you are doing, and if you want, share with me some of your stories too!
