June 16, 2021 – Daniel 1-6

Daniel was carried to Babylon in 605 B.C. He, along with his companions, lived lives of faithfulness to the Lord even when threatened with death. They were given all the advantages of life in the palace – the best food, education, training – and facing lions and a fiery dungeon, they, as the writer of Hebrews put it, refused “to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life” (Hebrews 11:35).


Through the deliverance from lions and fire, the interpretation of dreams, the destruction of the golden image, and the writing on the wall in King Belshazzar’s reign, God’s sovereignty and providential control of all things was clearly demonstrated, even over this most powerful nation of Babylon. It’s no wonder that Daniel and his friends could look to their God and entrust their lives to him. David understood: “Those who know your name trust you because you have not abandoned any who seek you, Lord” (Psalm 9:10).


By faith we see the hand of God

In the light of creation’s grand design,

In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness,

Who walk by faith and not by sight.

We will stand as children of the promise’

We will fix our eyes on Him, our soul’s reward.

Till the race is finished and the work is done,

We’ll walk by faith and not by sight. –Keith and Kristyn Getty
