Bible Reading: Dan. 6:1-11
Text: Dan. 6:10
Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
Daniel was a man of great intellectual and spiritual discipline. He was in his ordained office to serve the Lord and the nation. He never compromised or kicked against the interest of the Lord or the nation in order to please himself. He was out to serve and he served diligently.
His Principles are as follows:
1. Salvation: He was genuinely saved and he feared the Lord both in his service to the nation and his relationship with others. His focus was not shifted off the kingdom of God as he was determined to please the Lord in all his daily dealings.
2. Purpose: He discovered his place and assignment as a person, regardless of the situation that brought him to Babylon, and followed it to detail, not minding the environment and the sent attack of the adversary against his life and the purpose of God for the state. Don’t also forget, he was preferred because he was an agent of change indeed.
3. Focus: He was an exceptional public servant, a true ambassador who at any point in time was ready to please the Lord. Though he was wrongly accused and he had a direct access to the king- an opportunity to protect and save himself, he never tried to use it (his office) to defend his cause or for any private gain.
4. Prayerfulness: He prayed dangers off his life and never took a step without getting direction in the place of prayer. He always had the backing of the Lord because he maintained a sweet fellowship with his maker.
He was a brand that no one could ignore, push aside or rubbish.
If you desire the Daniel kind of success, you also must create a spiritual brand for yourself.
Let Us Pray.
1. Thank you oh Lord for your presence in my life.
2. Oh Lord my God, help me to build my life, work and career on your order and dictate.
3. Thank you for answered prayers oh Lord.
