Because Daniel refused to negotiate his worship, his enemies brought him before the king for not honoring the decree (see Daniel 6:13). The king had no choice but to have him thrown into the lions' den. King Darius spent a sleepless night, and in the morning he cried out before the den: "Daniel, servant of the living God, can your God, whom you serve continually, deliver you from the lions?" Triumphant, Daniel left there unscathed and with renewed faith because God had shut the lions' mouths. After that, Daniel's enemies were thrown into the same pit and were all destroyed by the hungry animals.
If you and I trust in God and worship Him when our enemies conspire to harm us, as Daniel did, we will be unharmed.
Stand firm, my brother and sister. We already know of some who are suffering in their jobs because of the imposition of certain laws, but like Daniel, if we stand firm in the Lord, He will also bring us deliverance.
