TOPIC: THE SECRET OF DANIEL’S GREATNESS
SCRIPTURE: 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 6:10 (KJV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be truly dedicated to God, a person must have a rigid, unbroken prayer schedule.
Daniel was one character that God used mightily in Scripture. His reign outlived four different kings. He was so relevant in his time that kings could not do without him. People felt the Power and Presence of God in his generation.
Now, one secret of Daniel’s greatness was his brutal dedication to God in prayer and the study of the Word.
Daniel 6:10 says,
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 who prayed; he had a rigid schedule of praying three times each day.
So, to be truly dedicated to God, a person must have a rigid, unbroken prayer schedule.
Daniel was also a man of the Word.
Daniel 9:2 says,
In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
Daniel was acquainted with Scriptures. He ransacked the Book of Jeremiah to a point where he found out the time the captivity of his people was to end.
Beloved, dedicated people have voracious appetite for God’s Word; they study Scriptures to the point of seeing and discovering what no one else had ever seen.
So, to study the Scripture superficially in order to fulfil all righteousness is not a mark of dedication to God. Dedicated People study Scriptures in order to discover God and fresh light.
REMEMBER THIS: To be truly dedicated to God, a person must have a rigid, unbroken prayer schedule.
1. Study the life of Daniel closely to learn his devotion to God.
2. Make the practice of praying and studying the Word a regular schedule in your life.
Lord, I rebuke every spell of spiritual laziness and lethargy. I receive the grace and discipline to be devoted to You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
