In Daniel 6, the prophet Daniel was challenged in his later years. It has been suggested that Daniel would have been over 80 years of age at that time. Daniel was a man in foreign captivity because the Lord placed him there; he had a challenge given to him concerning his loyalty. Whatever difficulty he might have experienced—and you know he did—his loyalty to the local government and to the Lord God was never in doubt. When doubt was thrust before him, the choice was easy, he chose God. God vindicated Daniel for his loyalty.
