Scripture: Daniel 6:16-22
Daniel 6:16-22 says, “So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, ‘Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.’” The king found himself prophesying to the prophet! Will we pursue God in the Spirit until we see victory over adversity? The king threw Daniel into the lion’s den reluctantly. It cost him a sleepless night and he went back the next morning to see if God had saved Daniel. Lo and behold, he heard Daniel’s voice and knew God had intervened and saved him. Daniel paid a price for how he walked. He did not compromise and had to face a den of hungry lions. But he found Jesus the prophet like Moses and was able to face any circumstance he found himself in because of it. Persecution is rising for believers but praying in the Spirit builds us up to face it!
