Daniel 6:23 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Daniel 6:23

The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den. And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him because he had trusted in his God.


When you get thrown into the lion's dens of life, do you have the faith to come out unscathed? When the world puts you in that pit, and it will, will your faith stand the test? It doesn’t just say that Daniel was spared but that “no wound was found on him,” and it's all because of his faith! His faith in Who God is, not where Daniel was!


As I was typing this, the Holy Spirit just revealed this to me, so I want to share it:


The king = the world

The den of lions = the sins and evils of this world that will try to devour and destroy you

We are Daniel and like him, only our faith, in Jesus Christ, can deliver us from this den of death!


The world will put us into situations that will try to steal, kill, and destroy us, but through our faith and reliance on Christ, we can and will overcome! Much like Daniel's faith lifted him from the den, Jesus Christ will lift us out of our pit if we believe, repent, and surrender to Him!


I love how Daniel's faith impacted the heart of the king who put him in the pit in the first place! Let me tell you, I have seen this play out in my own life! My mom's faith has inspired, edified, encouraged, and strengthened my own faith in the Lord! Watching her walk through trials, heartache, and pain and never waiver in Who Jesus Christ is in her life speaks right to my heart! Not only that, but watching God’s faithfulness to her because of her faith encourages me that He sees and is there for His children!


This verse and so many others prove that your faith can change not only your destiny but those around you! Both faith and fear are contagious. Which one will you share today?


2 Timothy 1:5 - I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.


God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise forever to God Almighty, King Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
