How did Daniel stay safe while in the lions' den? Was he afraid?
Here's the answer:
Daniel obeyed God and God saved His life.
When Daniel was an old man, some powerful men talked King Darius into making a new law that would put Daniel in danger. King Darius agreed with the men and implemented a new law that said that no one could pray to anyone but him. How did Daniel react? He continued to pray to God! The king had to punish him by throwing Daniel into a den of lions.
All night long, Daniel stayed with the lions in the lions' den. The Bible doesn’t say if Daniel was afraid, but we know that he trusted God. He knew that praying to God was the right choice. He faced the lions with bravery because he trusted God. The Bible says that God shut the mouths of the lions.
Then King Darius wrote to all the people and said, "I order people in every part of my kingdom to respect and honor Daniel's God" (Daniel 6:26).
"My God sent his angel. And his angel shut the mouths of the lions. They haven’t hurt me at all. That’s because I haven’t done anything wrong in God’s sight. I’ve never done anything wrong to you either, Your Majesty" (Daniel 6:22).
