“My God has sent his angel, who shut the lions’ mouths, that they do me no evil because before him righteousness was found in me; and even before thee, O king, I have done no corruption. ” Daniel 6:22
Daniel rose as one of the leading figures in Babylon because he distinguished himself through his lifestyle of integrity. And because of his approach to leadership plot was made to destroy him.
Daniel was always standing against evil, he had no fear of man. He had a clean record. What Daniel was in the public he equally was in private.
His adversary had no occasion to find fault in Daniel. They could not discredit Daniel because he was consistent, trustworthy and righteous.
“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.” Daniel 6 :5-8
When you stand for the truth the enemy will always see you as a threat against their agenda and will always seek a way to bring you down. So the enemy sought for ways morally, financially, and ethically to bring Daniel down but found now. He had no skeleton in his cupboard.
You cannot speak against evil with your lips and still do evil in your heart. Like Daniel if you are going to be a voice that speaks against evil you must walk continuously in righteousness.
As a result of Daniel walking in righteousness when false charges was made against Daniel and he was thrown in the lions den YeHoVah sent his angel to shut the lions mouth.
Vindication will be granted to those who walk in righteousness.
