“Destined For Greatness”

Key Verse

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” Daniel 6:3

Text — Daniel 6:1-9


The story of Daniel in the Bible is an interesting one. One important aspect of his life is that he was destined for greatness. Even as a captive in a strange land he was preferred above the presidents and princes because an excellent spirit was in him.

What was the secret of his excellent spirit? He had the fear of God in him. He was a true worshipper of the Almighty God. While in a strange land, he obeyed all that he learnt about God. He stood for God’s righteous standard in the midst of corruption. These qualities made him to excel in all areas of his life. To have an excellent spirit, the first thing is for you to surrender your life to Jesus, repent of your sins and then you will begin to enjoy the fruit of excellence. Also, you need to be focused and determined, make positive confession with your mouth and pray yourself into greatness and you shall be celebrated.
