Bread for the Journey


 Daniel 6:10 NIV

" 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 determined to do the right thing, he wanted to be obedient to God. He served God in Babylon for many years, being faithful to God in all things. He began as a slave and then got a higher position. He interpreted the king's dreams and received visions from God. We also know he slept in the lion's den without being harmed! Daniel was often challenged to compromise his faith in God but he never wavered and stayed true to God, praying and giving thanks frequently.

If we want to have the courage that Daniel had we too must be bold and acknowledge God's wisdom and be willing to obey and trust him..He will will take care of us!
Our journey in life may be bumpy at times, let Daniel's example encourage us to be bold and unwavering in our faith in God.

Dare to be a Daniel
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.

  1. That song reminds me of VBS - and singing it, at the top of my lungs, while swinging! Now, as an adult, I have a full appreciation for the meaning. Thank you for the reminder!

  2. Thank you,Betty. This so goes with what I've been reading this week. There are still many believers for whom the possiblilty of imprisonment (or worse) is a reality, and yet they stand up for their belief because their love and fear of God is deeper than their fear of what man can do to them. The resulting miracles are amazing and have had me thinking about and praying for such as these.. . today's Daniels.
