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. Daniel 6:23 (Full context: Daniel 6)
King Darius favored Daniel and put him in a position of power. Other leaders did not like this so they asked King Darius to not allow anyone to pray for 30 days, except to King Darius, or they would be thrown in the lion’s den. Daniel did not listen and continued to pray and give thanks to God. The other leaders did not like this, they went to his house and caught him praying so brought him in front of King Darius, for the punishment of the lion’s den.
God knew that Daniel was good and faithful so sent angels to protect Daniel by closing the lions’ mouths. The next morning, King Darius went to check on Daniel and was overjoyed when Daniel survived. From that point, King Darius wrote a decree that everyone in the land should have fear and reverence for the God of Daniel.
When we put our trust in God, he will be with us and care for us.
May God bless you and be with you during this Christmas season!
