He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

What Should Not Change

Dan 6:1-10, 10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home… he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.

The walk of faith is not always smooth. A believer who understands that the accuser of the brethren is ever working none stop is not intimidated or swayed by the changes that takes place. He learns to adapt with seasons changes.

The leaders in the days of Daniel despised Daniel for being trustworthy and faithful in his duties. He was put in charge over all governors with the task to make sure the king suffered no loss of any kind. The rest of the leaders could not get their way of stealing or slacking as long as Daniel was in charge. Without finding fault with his character to slander, they went after his devotion to God in prayer. Knowing his character, pinning him against his God will be his only downfall as they thought. A decree for his sake was made and signed into law not to ask petition of any god or man for 30 days but the king.

Daniel even with the decree still resolved to keep doing what he had always done, that is pray. To Daniel this day was another normal day despite of the changes. Rather be moody, angry or try to appeal, he took the matter to God in prayer. If you know the ways of the Lord like Daniel, regime change, seasons change and even law changes will not sway you. You do what you have always done or should do, pray and give thanks. Venting over changes may have very little effect, effective fervent prayer of a righteous man shall avail much. The changes are tests to see what you can with stand, and to awaken you even to greater levels. Things can change, but these, character, faith, prayer should never change.
