Unchangeable Law

In our Bible story today, we heard that Daniel would not pray to King Darius but continued to pray to the Lord. When Darius found out he'd been tricked into condemning Daniel, he "set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored to the going down of the sun to deliver him" (Daniel 6). But the laws and statutes and decrees could not be changed. So Darius had no option left but to commend Daniel to his God.

Like the laws of the Medes and the Persians, God's law cannot be altered. The law could not be set aside simply because it was going to have ugly consequences; it had to stand. But God is greater than Darius. When the Lord set His heart on us to deliver us, when He labored to the going down of the sun that one Friday, He was able to deliver us.
