Unbending Obedience

Re:Verse reading–Daniel 6 (day seven)

Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously.Then these men came by agreement and found Daniel making petition and supplication before his God.  Daniel 6:10-11

Daniel marked his life with unbending obedience to God praying three times a day.  His adversaries knew if there was anything they could count on they could count on Daniel to submit to his God like clockwork.

If someone had been following you this summer how many moments of unbending obedience to God did they note?  Showing love to a neighbor? Witnessing? Mornings on your knees in prayer?  You do not necessarily need to pray three times a day like Daniel, but you should have your regular appointments with God scheduled throughout your week.  The day, time, duration, etc. are between you and God, but anyone seeking God with all their heart is going to spend time with God no matter what else is going on around them.

One thought on “Unbending Obedience”

  1. I totally agreed. Making consistent communication and scheduled appointments with God each day and throughout our week is a good thing. This way we are building trusting relationships with God. Trust matters!
