Into The Lion’s Den
Daniel 6

PROP: Since God is Lord over all and is more than able to deliver his people, we can faithfully persevere in life by faith in him.

1. Daniel is exalted by God. (6:1-4)

2. Daniel remains faithful to God. (6:5-15)

Daniel’s prayer is daring, defiant, disciplined prayer. It was not for prideful show but for public testimony. It was a public statement about the glory of God over the glory of Darius. — John Piper

3. Daniel is delivered by God. (6:16-24)

4. Darius praises Daniel’s God. (6:25-28)

Therefore, in the midst of the greatest of trials and suffering, even when we are persecuted for the faith, we can have a peace that will astound the world, for the Lord holds even our oppressors in his hand, and says, “Thus far and no further.” — Ian Duguid
