Verse Of The Day : … but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11:32

Thought of The Day : It takes doggedness and a lion’s heart to stand alone for Christ.

LISTEN : God is mighty and raises mighty people. He is stronger than everyone and everything else. His desire is for us to be strong too and do exploits. What is exploit? It’s a bold or daring feat. It’s when you achieve great things for God despite oppositions, difficulties or hindrances. Our verse of the day says,

“… but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”

Daniel 11:32

Beloved, do you want to achieve great feats for God? Then, get close to Him. A sincere walk with God will bring Him into our lives (James 4:8-10). God releases Himself into us when we make efforts to know Him more and more. As a matter of fact, the more we know Him the more of His power and presence we will enjoy. My dear, strive to know God more and more. It is difficult to operate on the frequency of divine power without a quality relationship with God. You can’t be strong in God until you are acquainted with Him. How much you know God will determine how far you’re prepared to go for or with Him. Those who know God less are usually frustrated and powerless in the face of trials. They’re strangers to the power of God. My dear, the pressure we (believers) go through in the world will either result in staying dedicated to God, or renouncing Him. Those who are not strong and committed will renounce God when the going gets tough. The truth is, no person can stand pressure in the name of God when he or she is chicken-hearted. We need to be determine and dogged to be the kind of people God wants us to be for His kingdom. Beloved, be committed and dedicated to God (Daniel 3:16-18). No matter what, keep burning the incense of prayer, do exploits for God and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ with passion no matter the situation (Acts 8:1-8,40). Friend, do you want to do exploits for God? Then, love and fear Him ; grow in spiritual knowledge, self-discipline and don’t stop burning for Him. Remember, the deeper your knowledge of God, the greater your chances of doing exploits for Him. Henceforth, wake up! Be strong and do exploits for God. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Determine to dedicate yourself to God as long as you live.
2. Create atmosphere for the Spirit of God to operate in your life.
3. Open your heart to God and pray for His presence to fill your heart.
4. Demonstrate your faith and loyalty to God by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak to your life, henceforth catch the fire of dedication to God and receives strength to do exploits for Him, in Jesus’ name, amen!

Reflection : It is difficult to operate on the frequency of divine power without a quality relationship with God.
