BE DEDICATED AND COMMITTED TO GOD
THE STORY OF DANIEL AND KING DARIUS
King Darius gave Daniel a high position for his outstanding work. Other leaders were jealous of him and spied on him to find him doing wrong things.
They noticed Daniel's faithfulness in worship to God and plotted to use it against him. They tricked the king to sign a decree that all prayers should be addressed to the king and none should pray to their God
Daniel chose to continue his daily worship toGod in spite of the decree. His enemies saw him worshipping his God and they accused him before the king Darius.
When the king saw that Daniel's God was able to save him, he ordered that Daniel be released and all his enemies including their families be thrown into the lion's den. The hungry lions tore them apart.
King Darius was forced to command Daniel to be thrown into the Lion’s den
As Daniel faced the lions, king Darius could not sleep, early in the morning he went to check on Daniel
LESSON TOLEARN: Godhonored Daniel’s commitment and dedication by protecting him from the lions. Soalso your commitment and dedication unto God will be greatly rewarded and thatwill bring many people to know Him.
ACTIONPOINT: Fromtoday, pray to God for courage and ensure you remain committed and dedicated toGod even if when others don’t and you have to stand alone.
