1. Been faithful, noticed
Daniel soon proved himself more capable than all the other administrators and high officers. Because of Daniel’s great ability, the king made plans to place him over the entire empire.
2. People plot and envy. Because his way was successful.
Then the other administrators and high officers began searching for some fault in the way Daniel was handling government affairs, but they couldn’t find anything to criticize or condemn. He was faithful, always responsible, and completely trustworthy. So they concluded, “Our only chance of finding grounds for accusing Daniel will be in connection with the rules of his religion.”
3. Found no fault in Him, so decided to blame his faith through their faith. In times of trouble/business we should keep our faith and stay with God and not panic.
But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God.
4. Even thrown into death trap, standing good faith saved him and even trapped those plotted into death with their families.
God appoints high officers and administrators. We should communicate people with respect - officers, traffic police etc. If we wronged then first we should admit it and and seek excuse.
Then he became testimony to the high king and nations. One faithful seed grows into a big tree.
God gives away kingdom or blessings to other people even if they are not his people or believers, therefore we shall be faithful in all our ways and testify like Daniel.
When he got there, he called out in anguish, “Daniel, servant of the living God! Was your God, whom you serve so faithfully, able to rescue you from the lions?” My God sent his angel to shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me, for I have been found innocent in his sight. And I have not wronged you, Your Majesty.” Then the king gave orders to arrest the men who had maliciously accused Daniel. He had them thrown into the lions’ den, along with their wives and children. The lions leaped on them and tore them apart before they even hit the floor of the den. Then King Darius sent this message to the people of every race and nation and language throughout the world: “Peace and prosperity to you! “I decree that everyone throughout my kingdom should tremble with fear before the God of Daniel. For he is the living God, and he will endure forever. His kingdom will never be destroyed, and his rule will never end. So Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian. (Daniel 6:3-5, 10, 20, 22, 24-26, 28 NLT)
3. Listening to Jesus.
People tend to believe bad news more than the good news. Brother Daniel was so bold that he didn't panic when he learned the law has been signed.
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the L ord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NLT)
God gave us good news, but the devil tries to snitch it away or distort us from the good news. With faith seeds are watered. Do you want to water the good seed or the bad. Our God is the creator therefore any trails, sickness or anything can't overcome unless it is His will.
