Hard Things

Bible, Daniel, Lion's Den
Presidential Campaigns are good reminders of human vulnerability. 

It’s a rare person who doesn’t have a skeleton or two in their closet.

That’s why it’s amazing that the Babylonian “politicians” who tried to discredit Daniel, couldn’t do it. They concluded they’d have to put Daniel in a position that would make him violate his faith (Daniel 6:1-5). Otherwise, he’d never do anything wrong.

Daniel was taken captive while still young, probably made a eunuch (that was the custom in such situations), and forced to serve a pagan king. He was surrounded by ungodly influences, pagan gods, and immoral lifestyles. If anyone had reason to excuse himself from serving God whole-heartedly, it was Daniel.

But, amazingly, he stood his ground and never wavered in doing the hard things for God.

Are you facing a hard thing? Are you tempted to compromise? Remember Daniel. God gave Daniel the strength to stand firm, and He will give it to you as well.
