Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
Daniel made a decision to do what he felt God would have him do and decided to stick with it.  While the King and his servants (the government) thought they knew what was best for Daniel and the others Daniel knew better and was not about to be forced to do something he felt was against God's teachings.
We are all under authority of some form of Government and certainly we should obey the laws of the land.  It becomes a different situation completely when those laws are contrary to the teachings of God.  When there is a conflict between man's law and God's law we are obligated to choose the higher authority, which is always God.
The next few devotionals will deal with Daniel knowing his purpose was to obey God.  I hope you can gain something from this that will help you in your every day experiences.
We have compiled an E-book of our devotionals in .pdf format. We will send them to you attached to an email.
