DANIEL THE MAN – LESSON 3
HIS EXAMINATION
 
We saw yesterday in Daniel 1:3 how Daniel and his three friends took a stand for God against the “King’s table” of food and wine which would have defiled them according to the written laws of God. They ate only “pulse” for ten days, drunk only water, and came out looking better than all the other young men. They were then allowed to maintain their water and vegetarian regimen throughout their three years of training in the Chaldeans arts and language and Babylonian knowledge.
 
God honored their commitment and obedience as (v. 17) says “God gave them (all four) knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom (understanding). And Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.”
 
At the end of the three years, all of the company of trainees (and there were many) were brought to Nebuchadnezzar for examination. As the King communed with each of them, he found none who could compare in excellence to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (v. 19). In all matters of wisdom and understanding (v. 20) “he found them ten times better than all the (Chaldean) magicians and astrologers that were in all his (entire) realm.”
 
This launched them into favored positions in the Babylonian empire. Daniel, especially gifted by God, continued in favor throughout the entire seventy-year exile (605-606 B.C. to 536 B.C.), including through the overthrow of Babylon to the Persian rule of Cyrus.
 
Tomorrow we shall see how Daniel’s wisdom stacked up against the “wise men” of Chaldea and all of the King’s advisors.

HE LEADETH ME BESIDE THE STILL WATERS
 
In the busyness of life, we so often do not take time to rest. I can attest to that. I have worked in the public for most of my life. Our ministry has never been “large enough” to sustain us without an additional income. Sometimes we worked six days a week and then ministered on Sunday and also Wednesday night church services. I started taking a half a day off about 15 years ago, then it became a whole day. Yet even when I was off, I didn’t do much “resting” because there was always something to take care of. I felt guilty if I didn’t “get things done.” I learned that this was not good for me.
 
Our bodies need the rest that I didn’t give mine. After so many years of being busy I found it very difficult just to sit still and “rest” without any distractions. Yet, when I did it, I realized how much I needed it. Now when I do it, I don’t feel guilty. 
 
God has instructed us to have a “day of rest”, and for good reason. Our bodies, souls and spirits need it! When we rest, we need to get in a place where it is quiet. Psalm 23 tells us that the “shepherd” leads his sheep beside the “still waters”. There is a reason for this. Sheep are very skittish. They frighten easy and run when they are scared. The “shepherd” knows that he must take them to a place where they won’t be afraid.
 
Of course, we don’t have a literal shepherd dragging us to that place, but the Lord leads us by his Spirit into a quiet place. Sometimes it is sitting still and closing our eyes and thinking about him and just “listening” for him to speak. It is in these times that you are refreshed. It is in this place that you “hear” what the Spirit says. Sometimes He will wake you up from sleep to come and be with Him. Other times, it is simply sitting somewhere that there are no distractions.
 
Wherever that place is, you must visit there often. You will find the more you visit the more you are refreshed. It is that “secret place” that Psalm 91 speaks of that you find “Him”. He is waiting for us there and wants to spend time with us more than you can imagine. Think of a loving father that wants to spend time with his children. That is the way it is with God. He will meet you there when you take the time to rest and go there. Meeting Him there beside the still waters will do as Psalm 23:3 says, “He restoreth my soul.”

Word from the Lord to Helen Sanders

Do you hear the rain? Did you know it was raining? So often my children you don’t even observe what is going on around you. Yes, I bring things to show you what lies ahead. The rain can bring cleansing and the rain can bring destruction, yet I choose to bring it. Have you noticed how the rain brings life to my garden called earth? Have you noticed how my trees and flowers lift up their hands to receive before it even comes. They know when the rain is coming. I would say to you today, lift up your hands and let my rain fall on you. Let it saturate you and rid you of those dry places. Let my rain bring hope and peace like you have never known it. Let my rain bring refreshing and hope. Oh my children I want to rain on you blessings after blessings. Do you hear the rain? It is coming. Look not on the rains of destruction for they will take away your peace. Look and listen for the rain that will quench you. Open your mouth as it rains, and let the rain of my life giving shower touch your tongue. Let it rest on your face, and bring peace. My children, the rain is here. Receive it and be refreshed.

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION
3-13-2021

There’s a new and different season soon to come your way. It’s in this upcoming season that you will receive unexpected increase from the very one or ones who once used you, turned on you and betrayed you. It’s just a matter of time and you will begin to notice that you’re miraculously breaking free from the chains that have kept you back, held you down and totally messed up your focus. Somehow they were actually successful in selling you the infamous lie; That you were not good enough to ever succeed in God’s plan to restore your health, your wealth of knowledge and information and your vision for your provision for your purpose. Remember when Israel left for the promised land they walked out in combat formation; And they were carrying all the riches of Egypt with them. Don’t you ever lose sight of this great truth...God will perform His work in you, through you and for you in a moments time; And He will do It all in spite of your adversities and your adversaries. Now believe it...Receive it...And walk in it.
PROPHETIC WORD
This is a prophetic word given by Kenneth E. Hagin about the future of the United States.
