The Character of Daniel (Part 2)

The Character of Daniel (Part 2) by Joan Cook

Daniel 1 and 2

Today, we are continuing to look at Daniel's life and his Godly attributes which we can apply to our own lives.

5. Daniel had Christian Friends - The Bible tells us that after Daniel made an appointment with the King to interpret his dream, he immediately went home and told his friends his situation and they prayed together.

Do you have Christian friends in whom you can confide? Friends that will tell you the truth about a situation! Friends that will help you when you are down or needy! Friends that will pray with you until you get an answer!

6. Daniel was Humble - After Daniel had been given the interpretation to the King's dream and was to reveal it to the King, he remained humble. He told the King that it was not because of his wisdom that God had given him the interpretation, but because he was being a chosen vessel.

When God uses you to speak to others, do you remain humble knowing that it is Him, not you? We should never elevate ourselves to His throne, but should remain on bended knee at the base of the throne. A humble man is one who is totally dependent on God.

7. Daniel was Blessed - Daniel was promoted by the King to a high place in his kingdom.

Do you recognize the blessings of God on your life? If you are breathing right now, you are blessed! God has blessed all of us with life and has given us all a calling that He has placed on our lives. The Bible tells us that we are blessed to be a blessing.

H. G. Wells said, "If there is no God nothing matters, but if there is a God nothing else matters."

We must be men and women of character - God's character, displaying to others the love and power of Jesus Christ.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will allow you to be a Believer of Godly Character. Ask God today for training, standards, recognition, opportunities, Christian friends, humility, and blessing.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's World Outreach Center (WOC). This is our main office and training facility. Pray for God to protect the building, guard the mechanical and structural aspects of the facility, and use the facility for maximum eternal benefits.
