PROVE YOURSELF MORE CAPABLE
Wednesday, January 27, 2016
“Daniel soon proved himself more capable than all the other administrators and high officers. Because of Daniel’s great ability, the king made plans to place him over the entire empire.” Daniel 6:3, NLT.
On this verse above, Daniel receives honor from King Darius because of his excellence at work and the king even made plans to place him over the entire empire. To make him second in-charge after him, bear in mind that Daniel became a slave in Babylonia after Judah was conquered. God was with Daniel at all times and granted Him favor in everything he did. Daniel 1:9. God is able to make you shine in the dungeon if you are faithful and consistent in prayer. No matter what job you do, you got to do it with excellence to show yourself approved before God. Prove yourself more capable than all others because you have been given the spirit of power. 2 Tim. 1:7
The King James Version says the man was preferred above the presidents and princes. Why? Because an excellent spirit was in him, and for this reason God elevated him above all other administrators and high officers. If you want to receive this gift you got to be a prayerful somebody. You need to receive the impartation of this gift of the spirit in order to receive promotion after promotion in your work place and in your business ventures.
The man Daniel prayed three times a day to God, everything revolving around his life was prayer. You receive this gift when you are highly dependent on prayer for everything you do in life. You need to love searching the scriptures, study the word, and seek to know more, pray about the scriptures you read and ask God to manifest them in your life; ask God to reveal them to you just like Daniel did. Daniel 9:2. You got to go through the books. Paul says to Timothy my son, study in order to show your-self approved unto God, the workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Tim. 2:15 (NKJV). Knowledge comes from studying. Empower yourself as a child of God, study the word of God so that you will receive the revelation about your job, your career and your business so that you will discover secretes that will enhance you to become a guru in that field and in the market.
If you want to receive this gift, you got to be a man of purpose, a man of perception and a man of prayer in order to receive power to do supernatural and extra-ordinary tasks that normal person cannot do. Acts 1:8.
Daniel 6:1-3, 10; Daniel 1:8-9; Daniel 9:2; 2 Timothy 2:15; 2 Timothy 1:7; John 14:26; 1 Corinthians 2:10
Dear Lord Jesus, just like Daniel, please release the Spirit of excellence to be imparted in my spirit. I want to excel in all that I do, in my career, in my daily efforts, in reading your word and in my spiritual life in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray. I receive the impartation of an excellent spirit, right now in Jesus name! I declare that I have an excellent spirit in me.
