How do we stand strong in the face of discouragement and against our enemies? When Daniel heard the news that anyone who worshiped any god or man aside from King Darius would be thrown into the lions’ den, he went to pray (and even prayed in a bold manner!). Daniel did not suddenly pray because he feared what would happen; he prayed as he did before -with HUMILITY, CONSISTENCY and DEPENDENCY. God does not promise to deliver us from the ‘lion’s den’ in our lives but promises us that HE is in control of the outcome. Through this familiar story of Daniel, we learn that Daniel was not saved because of his own works, but rather by the sovereignty of God and a faith that starts with prayer.
