I’ve heard that you have the spirit of the gods in you, and that you have insight, intelligence, and extraordinary wisdom.

We have now arrived at the most famous story in the Book of Daniel. As we’ve seen, this man of God ruled with “insight, intelligence, and wisdom” under Nebuchadnezzar (5:11). He had a reputation as a man with “an extraordinary spirit” (5:12), as one who had within him “the spirit of the gods.” “Insight, intelligence, and extraordinary wisdom” (5:14) was the word on the street about him continuing into the reign of Belshazzar, the last Babylonian king. King Darius the Mede shared their opinion and appointed Daniel to a position of significant leadership.
But suddenly, Daniel faced a crisis, a major test of faith. And within a few short days, we see a faithful 80-year-old man thrown into a pit with ravenous lions ready to tear him apart.
Why? Because he wouldn’t stop praying.
