OCTOBER 30, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – THE STREAM OF YOUR PRESERVATION AS A DANIEL – PROFESSIONALISM – Proverbs 22:29, Daniel 6:1-5
The second river that flows into the life of a Daniel is the river of professionalism – excellence, thoroughness, diligence, and expertise. Don’t think you are a complete Christian if the only thing you know how to do is pray. Even though prayer is superior, you must also add something to prayer; you need to add some diligence and some thoroughness.
Three levels of work that a Christian must master:
- Prayer work: You must learn how to kneel to pray and receive instructions and directions from God. Master the act of prayer because that is where your accuracy is going to come from; that is where your senses are going to be sharpened in the spirit. Your safety will come from your prayer life.
- Hard work: Work hard! Let the rubber meet the road. Don’t be a lazy person. Work and give your best to your work. Stretch yourself at your work. Go the extra mile. Seventy per cent of human beings do just enough. Members of the Daniel’s company do more than required.
- Faith work: This is mouth work. Don’t be working hard and speaking wrong. Your mouth will either take you places or break you into pieces.
Make sure that the enemy can’t find anything in you. Jesus said, “…for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me” (John 14:30). The devil wants to tell the world that a Christian is not different from every other person. However, God wants to raise the Daniels to show the devil that they are different.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive grace to take my equipping season seriously enough, that the devil will not defeat me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
