When Daniel was cast into the lion’s den, where God miraculously saved him, he was given a vision by the angel Gabriel. It was given to him while praying, and this prophetic revelation encompassed the periods of time leading to the first coming of Christ, the last seven years on earth (Tribulation), and His final return. It is possible this vision was given to Daniel right before being put into the lion’s den, which explains why he was so calm. But if the vision came afterward, his calmness came from past experiences where God stepped in and rescued him. God will do no less for you when facing potentially destructive situations or circumstances. He will either give you an encouraging vision beforehand or bring to your memory how He’s been there for you in the past. Whichever He chooses, realize He’s right there beside you with perhaps one of his angels.
Daniel 6:16,19-21, Daniel 9:20-22 & Deuteronomy 31:8 Then the King gave orders, and Daniel was brought in and cast into the lions’ den. Then the King arose at dawn, at the break of day, and went to the lions’ den in haste. When he had come near the den, he cried out with a troubled voice, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you constantly serve, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel spoke, “O king, live forever!” Now while I was speaking and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God on behalf of the holy mountain of my God, the angel Gabriel, whom I had seen in a vision previously, came to me and gave me instruction and talked with me and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you new insight with understanding.” Remember always; the Lord is the One who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.
