A Daily Devotion for January 12, Tuesday


Daniel 6:1-10


verse 10: Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.

This verse does not include a description of Daniel’s mortal fears. How could he not have been afraid? He went directly to his own “En Hakkore“ and prayed to God, just as before. He knew he would not get help from any man on earth. He could only go to his God. Last week in our Tuesday group, Pastor Gil talked about having a life verse. People may change their life verse over the years, but eventually a life verse “sticks” because you are changed for taking on this verse as your own. My life verse is Psalm 138:3. I remember the day I prayed to God for courage. This was my En Hakkore.

Heavenly Father, When I called, you answered me. You made me bold and stouthearted. Amen


Psalm 138:3

We don't often hear about Daniel and what he went through defending his faith. It is good to have these reminders especially when the world seems to be closing in. Keeping the faith is an ongoing process.

Daniel 6:1-10 The story of Daniel in the Lion's Den is familiar to those of us who grew up in the church. It is a story of Faith and miracles. These verses that proceed Daniels' arrest and important, yet we do not often read them. Daniel was a slave, captured by the Babylonians. No matter how long he had lived in slavery, he had remained faithful to his God, by eating habits and prayer. He was an excellent worker and loved by the King. All of these traits did not endear him to those he who worked with him. They were jealous, simple as that. They plotted against him. These are human conditions that this story warns us a…

Daniel 6: 1-10


5 Finally these men said, “We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God.”


When people are jealous of anyone’s good fortune or just don’t like a person, they will sometimes go to great lengths to harm that person. They will search high and low to find that one area of weakness. Where would my weakness be? If someone wanted to bring a charge against me for my belief in God, would they be able to find enough evidence to convict me? I hope that the evidence is there.


Dearest Lord I hope I have enough faith that I would defend you…

Daniel 6:1-10


Daniel saw all the authority in his secular world turning against him. He was powerless against them so he turned to the one constant in his life, God.


Dear Lord, I sometimes feel that this secular world has turned against itself and is on a path to destruction. Have we become so much like the Israelites of the Old Testament that you are bringing your wrath down on us? We are at a point where my only hope is in prayer. Amen.

20210112 Tuesday, Daily Devotion - Daniel 6:10


10 Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.


Daniel was so distinguished in his profession. His colleagues were unable to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, corruption in him because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. Daniel seems perfect in my eyes. He had no issue in his life. I can’t imagine how he could be. I wanted to find what made him so perfect and…
