Daniel 6: Daniel’s Longest Night

Daniel lived an exemplary life. Throughout the book of Daniel, he rose to the highest level under each of the governments he served, and yet repeatedly suffered at the hands of those he served. In this familiar story, he is thrown into the lion’s den because he would not follow the decree from King Darius to pray only to him. Daniel was faithful to continue to pray three times a day to God. In the end of the story, God is glorified because of Daniel’s faithfulness. Are you going through a long night of suffering? Remain faithful so God will be glorified.
