Daily Devotion: Truth Ultimately Prevails

Bible Reading: Daniel 6:1-16 & 28

Key Verse: Verse 28 – “So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

Key Words: So this Daniel prospered

Daniel is an example of how truth always prevails. He obeyed the truth of God’s Word and even though it appeared he was doomed to be consumed by the lions, truth prevailed. It always does.

The problem we have today is we, rather than accept the truth, want to change it. The problem with that is that after we change it, it is no longer the truth but it’s a lie.

An older gentleman had some health problems. He went to visit his doctor and was told to change his diet. The physician lectured the man on the importance of eating well, and gave him a long list of things to eat and not eat.

The gentleman called his son to let him know about his declining health as he knew his son would be concerned. He explained the doctor’s prognosis and his prescription for restoring good health.
A couple of weeks later, the aged man’s son called to check on him. “OK, Dad, the doctor gave you some instructions awhile back. How is the regimen going?” The old man replied, “I’ve changed doctors.”

Sometimes our response to the truth is not the best response.

What to do:
✞ Remember, it is truth that makes us free…the real truth…not the truth that we want. John 8:32
