At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. Daniel 6:4
King Darius had chosen some men to help lead his country. Daniel was among those men. Daniel had done so well that the king chose to make Daniel a ruler over the entire nation. The other men were angry and jealous at the position that Daniel was given and sought to find a way to discredit him. As they watched him, they found out that they could find nothing corrupt in Daniel, everything he did was right.
In the political world, one of the greatest things many of the politicians do and those who vote for a politician, is seek out what is wrong with the opponent. People want to discredit a person to be able to claim he is not qualified to hold the position.
This even occurs outside of the political realm. Watch the news and it is common to see someone being accused of some wrong doing. Many times, the wrong done occurred years ago and is only being brought to the surface now. Often one person brings up some bad from the past, and many others suddenly come forward with similar stories.
Believers in Jesus should be living their lives in such a way that no one can find fault with them. Their private life and their public life should line up exactly the same and both should line up according to God’s standards. All thoughts, actions, and words should be the same as what God would speak. This keeps all accusations from standing true.
Satan is out to get you, if you are a follower of Jesus. He wants to be able to dig up some dirt in your life, to claim you really don’t follow Jesus. The world will seek to discredit you, to make you look like them and that your belief is false.
Focus your entire life on God and His ways of living, so that no one can bring up an accusation that will be true. The world will see how you are living and it will be a witness of the changing power of God.
What record will people find on you, if they search?
I pray today that you will allow God to cleanse you from all sin; that you will live your whole life for God; and that no one will be able to find any fault against you.
