Scriptural Reading: Daniel 6:3 (Day Three)
As we round-off our three-day fasting and prayer programme, we rise up in prayer against anything keeping us from excelling in the name of Jesus. Beloved in Christ, God wants us to excel, He has given us the spirit of excellence which was given to Daniel. We have been anointed to excel even in the presence of evil conspiracies. Against all odds, God desires us to prosper. Even in the presence of our enemies, our cup shall run over. We have been destined to reign in the midst of our foes. It is heaven’s concern that we reign on earth. We serve the God of excellence. Psalm 8:1 declares, “How excellent is Your name.” In Job 37:23, the Bible says, Our God is excellent in power and in judgment.” God has put in us the seeds of His divine excellence; as such we carry excellence inside of us. We have the ability to excel in spite of all obstacles. Friend, you can rise above that stumbling block in your life. Daniel excelled even outside his homeland. Your disadvantages, your disabilities, and even your disqualifications may abound, but in order for you to excel, you must allow the seed of excellence in you to grow, by your integrity, hard work, and fervent prayer. When you allow the spirit of excellence to permeate your attitude then your abilities, your advantages and your qualifications will outshine your negatives. You must have faith in your ability to excel no matter the obstacles. Obstacles, problems, challenges of various types and degrees, are not signs that God has forgotten you, they only confirm that you are still in the world, where human weaknesses and evil forces are still in operation. Even though Daniel was a friend of God, still he experienced troubled times. The troubles he faced did not deter him; his loyalty to the God of Israel was never in doubt. Even his enemies knew this fact. (Daniel 6:5-7) Even in hard times, when the suffering becomes unbearable, when others are changing their churches and gods, Daniel refused to change his loyalty and allegiance to the living God. Same was Job who was unflinchingly loyal to God in spite of Satan’s cruel strategies against him. Job said in Job 13:15, “Though God slay me, yet I will still trust in Him.”
Child of God, I want you to tell yourselves the truth, and with deep conviction that: “I am going to be loyal to the living God of Heaven, No Matter What Happens.” You serve a living God who created the heavens and earth. Nothing is too difficult for him. So rise up today as a fervent child of God and be prepared to do exploits for him. If you want to excel, if you believe that the God of Daniel can still make you to excel, take the prayer points below seriously.
