That Daniel, who is one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day…
So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” (Daniel 6:13,16)
Early the next morning the king went in haste, saying:
“…Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” (Daniel 6:20)
The faithfulness of God showed up in dire times – to the man who prayed, persisted, persevered, who fasted and obeyed.
King Darius thought he knew what was best, when satraps & governors tricked him to sign an edict that only he would be worshiped for one month. But God knew better, and Daniel followed God… So in he went to the lion’s den…
Yet, the faithfulness of God showed up when he needed it; He sent His angel to guard his servant.
The faithfulness of God comes on the scene as we pray, fast and obey the One and Only who gave His life for us.
