“Then said Daniel unto the King, O king, live forever. 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 vs 21-22
Daniel was a faithful man. He was faithful to King Nebuchadnezzar and his son King Belshazzar. But above all Daniel was faithful to God. He was known in the kingdom as the man of God who possessed an excellent spirit and one who could interpret dreams (Daniel 5 vs 12). People respected Daniel because of his faithfulness to God. But no matter how we try, the accuser of brethren (Revelation 12 vs 10) will always try to accuse us of something.
Jesus said in John 14 vs 30, “Hereafter, I will not talk much with you, for the prince (Satan/the accuser of the brethren) of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.” So, when the enemy came in the garden of Gethsemane, though he suffered betrayal, and endured the humiliation of being beaten and mocked, yet he opened not his mouth, and he never complained, but went as a lamb to the slaughter (Isaiah 53 vs 7) so that he would have been found blameless before his Father and before his accusers (Luke 23 vs 14).
How do we appear blameless in the sight of God? The word of God outlined the things that we should do in Philippians 2 vs 14 -15 saying, “Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” Daniel was such a man, he served faithfully, and the enemy came at him with everything he got, and failed miserably, because God rewards faithfulness. God did not deliver Daniel because he was faithful only to him, but because Daniel was faithful to the king as well. He served the king without complaint or strife, knowing that his faithfulness to the King was still faithfulness to God! (Colossians 3 vs 23-24). Complainers walk after their own lust (Jude 1 vs 16) when we complain we only satisfy our own desires, and not those of Christ. Accusations will come, but make sure that you are found blameless. Today I encourage you to remain faithful where you are planted so that when the enemy comes, he will find nothing in you.
Let us pray: Lord please forgive me of my sins today. Thank you for your word.Please help me never to complain while serving others according to your will, so that you can be glorified in Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.
