Destined for Significance

daniel7It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom one hundred and twenty satraps, to be over the whole kingdom; and over these, three governors, of whom Daniel was one, that the satraps might give account to them, so that the king would suffer no loss. Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. (Dan 6:1-3 NKJ)

Christians often think that the anointing of God and the filling with the Holy Spirit is for the purpose of receiving and giving a blessing during a church service. It’s that kind of remnant mythology! That’s right! Here we are in the four walls of a building that we call the church, barricading the doors and windows in case the world infiltrates our holy huddle. Is this what God wants? No! Nothing could be further from the truth.
In the story of Daniel, we see four Hebrew boys taken off into captivity in Babylon. You could almost feel sorry for them except for the fact that God had a plan. God’s plan for Daniel, as it was with Joseph, and so it is for you, to put people in places of significance. Daniel started off as a slave, was promoted by God, until he found himself over a third of the kingdom and about to move into a higher position. Daniel distinguished himself because of the excellent spirit within him.

Some Christians do nothing but moan and complain about their jobs. They bearly do the minimum and adopt laissez-faire, kind of easy-come-easy-go attitude. If that’s you, you’re missing out on God’s best. God has placed you were you are to be a person of significance, are you ready?
