Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, ‘Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you’” (Dan 6:16). The rulers of Babylon tried to trap Daniel in destruction by convincing King Darius to sign a law that would land Daniel in the lions’ den. But even King Darius knew that God would deliver Daniel. God sent an angel to save Daniel from death. Then, He turned the trap set for Daniel against the very same men who tried to set it. The wicked rulers of Babylon were thrown into the lions’ den, and suffered the same destruction they intended for Daniel. Whenever the enemy sets a trap for you, God will use it against him. He will deliver you from destruction, and then cause those who seek your hurt to fall. What the enemy intends for evil, God uses for good!
Father, thank You for always providing for Your children. I know the enemy cannot successfully set a trap for me when my heart is fixed on You. Deliver me from destruction, in Jesus’ name!
