4 ∂ Then the Presidents and Princes sought to finde occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdome, but they could finde none occasion, nor fault: forasmuch as he was faithfull, neither was there any errour or fault found in him.
7 All the Presidents of the kingdome, the gouernours, and the Princes, the counsellers and the captaines haue consulted together to establish a royall statute, and to make a firme decree, that whosoeuer shall aske a petition of any God or man for thirty dayes, saue of thee, O King, hee shall be cast into the denne of Lions.
10 ∂ Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, hee went into his house, and his windowes being open in his chamber toward Ierusalem, hee kneeled vpon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gaue thankes before his God, as hee did afore time.
12 Then they came neere, and spake before the king concerning the kings decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that euery man that shall aske a petition of any God or man, within thirty dayes, saue of thee, O king, shalbe cast into the denne of Lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
13 Then answered they and said before the king; That Daniel which is of the captiuity of the children of Iudah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
17 And a stone was brought and laid vpon the mouth of the denne, and the King sealed it with his owne signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
20 And when he came to the den, he cryed with a lamentable voice vnto Daniel, and the king spake and said to Daniel: O Daniel, seruant of the liuing God, Is thy God whom thou seruest continually, able to deliuer thee from the Lyons?
23 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel vp out of the denne: so Daniel was taken vp out of the den, and no maner of hurt was found vpon him, because he beleeued in his God.
24 ∂ And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of Lyons, them, their children, and their wiues: and the Lyons had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or euer they came at the bottome of the den.
26 I make a decree, That in euery dominion of my kingdome, men tremble and feare before the God of Daniel: for he is the liuing God, and stedfast for euer, and his kingdome that, which shal not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be euen vnto the end.

God is with us even when the devil is tempting us to not praising him, i'm reminding you this: that the one that knows us, knows us more better than the one that is tempting us. God will fight for us in every battle that the devil is against his will. Brothers and sisters let us trust in the LORD, and he will renew us and we shall mount like the Eagles. Amen.

What makes Daniel outstanding is because he served God continually and is a man of prayer.

He makes it clear that nothing will separate him from fearing God. He shows stand power, no matter what circumstances the answer is with our God.

Iím so inspired by the speech of the King Darius in chapter 6:26-27. He made a decree that every one under his administration including his household, presidents, governors, princes and all should tremble and fear the God of Daniel, JEHOVAH. His reason was because he delivers and rescues. He proceeds to say He works signs and wonders in heaven (thunders, lightning, whirlwind, hailstones, rainfall, winter, summer, spring, autumn, etc) and He works wonders also on earth (delivering, healing, rescuing, promoting, saving, etc). His conclusion deep down his heart was, JEHOVAH'S dominion on earth and in heaven shall be forever and ever!!! I love this chapter because all this was happening in Iran. And their King (Iranian King) said God (of Israel) is true God.

Daniel was seeking The real true God of the jews,the president and the princes were very anxious with Daniel not knowing that they were fighting what was in Daniel not Daniel,Brethren what you carry inside you matters alot before the Lord,Daniel's faith was great so to us we should have such faith.
