Drinking Deeply

To whom does the king turn to?

Someone mentioned they read my blog today, and that reminded me I wanted to make a post about Daniel 6. Just one interesting thought -

In Daniel 6, Darius makes a decree that no one is to pray to anyone except to him, upon pain of being thrown to the lions. What an interesting way to assert one's authority! Of course, Daniel, being the upright man he is, ignores the decree and prays, as usual. He's caught (he didn't try to hide it) and thrown into the den of lions, much to the dismay of Darius who appreciated the faithful service of Daniel. Darius, the one who made the decree about only praying to him, is completely powerless to do anything. He spends the night fasting and unable to sleep.

But God, the only true authority here, delivers Daniel from the lions, as only God can do!

Underestimating God power is actually underestimating your own self! Pray! Praise! Rejoice! The time will surely come! There's no doubt about it!
