The final clue we will be dealing with is the subtle operations of the devil against Daniels. Once the devil identifies a Daniel, he will try to work on him. Every Daniel must understand the working of the devil. Did you notice that he started by trying to change the name of Daniel? They gave them names after their gods and then moved to fashion and dress change. You must be careful as a Christian such that as you begin to rise and get to high places, the pressure of success does not make you fall. Daniels don’t follow worldly styles that are in vogue. As a lady, do you have to show your cleavage because that is what is in vogue? What is in vogue also takes people to hell. The enemy is changing many Daniels’ dressing, character, decisions and lifestyle today in the name of the ‘in thing’.
The devil’s goal is to mortgage people’s destinies so that by the time you get there as a Christian, they say you are one of them. You are not one of them! You can’t change a people that you are already part of in culture and values. You must be different! That you’ve attained a position of prominence in destiny doesn’t change God’s expectations of you.
Be sensitive; the devil wants to bring mixtures into your life to pollute your spirit and reduce the potency of your destiny. Daniel could have accepted the king’s meal, but he would have remained normal, like others. He rejected the offer and decided to stay pure and eventually became ten times better.
PRAYER: Whoever, whatever, wherever, anything or anyone at all that the devil is using to bring mixtures into my life, I throw you out in the name of Jesus.
