The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear
God provides the courage to live for Him
The Courage of Daniel
Daniel finds himself in a tough situation. He knows God deserves his praise, but he also knows if he doesn’t obey king Darius he will be punished.
Daniel must choose between obeying God & obeying King Darius.
It may have been easier to hide his faith for a while but instead he chose to obey God.
Daniel continued to trust God and have courage even when it seemed he would be eaten by the lions & God saved him.
If we stick with God He will take care of us too. We must trust God with all our heart even in hard times.
Talk about what being courageous means.
What if Daniel wasn’t courageous & instead played it safe? Talk about what would have happened if Daniel didn’t obey / trust God.
Talk about learning to talk to God as you would your parent, trust Him with all your hurts, worries and excitement. He is there to listen & guide you.
Memorize memory verse
Read Daniel 6
Talk about ways we can be courageous during the hard time we are in now.
Set up an obstacle course with an easy path and a difficult path with the end of the more difficult one having a better reward. Learning that even if it seems difficult if we trust God and have courage we can accomplish anything.
