My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Daniel 6:22

Putting the Word into Action

Daniel worked for governments that were often hostile to his spiritual beliefs. He acted wisely in all matters because he prayed often and stayed true to his God even if it put his life at risk. The governments of this world are increasingly hostile toward faith and some Christians today find their lives at risk. But God is still God! Like Daniel, we need to act wisely, pray often, and be true to our faith! This week pray especially for Christians around the world that are being persecuted. And if there is a way to act wisely on their behalf, then by all means, do it!
