When faced with the threat of death by lions or his commitment to God, Daniel stood firm in his faith. The relationship that Daniel had with God had proven itself to be an intimate one. God on many occasions showed Himself strong in the life of Daniel, and this time would be no different. As Daniel was thrown into the lion's pit, God shut the mouths of the lions and kept Daniel alive. The next day when the king came to see Daniel, to his pleasure Daniel was still alive and well. From that point on, the king made a decree that Daniel's God, would be recognized as the God of all in the kingdom. Stand firm in your faith, in the face of adversity, be solid in your foundation. Your stance for God will allow you to flourish in a foreign land and change the nation in which you live!
