“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; He shall call upon Me and I will answer him…I will deliver him and honor him” Psalm 91:14-15.
We find in Daniel 6 that King Darius thought of setting Daniel over the whole realm because he saw that Daniel had an excellent spirit in him. The governors and the satraps were jealous of Daniel, who was so faithful to His God and to the King that they tried to find fault with him concerning the law of his God. They established a royal statute that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except King Darius, shall be cast into the den. In fact, King Darius did not know the real purpose behind this decree.
Although, Daniel knew about the statute, it did not hinder his prayers to the living God. Daniel 6:10 says, “And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.”
We read in Daniel 6:16 that Daniel was cast into the den of lions and the following morning the king asked Daniel, “…has your God whom you serve continually been able to deliver you from the lions? Daniel’s reply was, “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
If you are going through tough circumstances like this in your life, please do not get troubled. Jesus Christ is there for you. He is standing beside you to help you. He will send His angels for you whenever you call upon him for help. Psalm 91:11 says, “For He shall give His angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up…You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.”
