Topic: Daniel’s Dose: Adventure 14- Everyone must praise the Lord!
Bible Reading: Daniel 4
Memory Verse: Daniel 4:37 (NKJV)
Now, I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down.
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? How has your day been (so far)? I pray that has been full of peace ad joy. I would like to use this opportunity to encourage you; as you go through this Christian journey. It might not always be “glitz and glam,” however, it will bring you the best rewards. I pray that strengthens you on this journey. Hallelujah!
Today, we are continuing our adventure through Daniel’s Dose. We will be exploring our mission, as Christians, to spread the gospel to all nations. However, today’s message focus on the kinds of people we must reach out to! Let us get right into the message!
Each day, we meet many people. People from various backgrounds, various cultures, various races, various countries, various social classes. Rescuing the souls of these people are part of your mission. God wants us to be fishers of men! He did not give us a specification of the kind or type of people we are to approach. We are to approach ALL!
At times, drawing someone’s attention can be very scary or intimidating. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can spread the gospel to anyone, anywhere! The Holy Spirit opens doors that allows us to communicate with people we would not normally speak with. Most importantly, he fills us with the right words to speak. Do not worry! Do not fret! You have a helper; sent by God, to equip you, encourage you and strengthen you! All you have to do is call!
From the last messages, we have seen that our actions and our lifestyles can be used as a tool for winning souls. I know of some people who spend their time figuring out how their lives can be an example to many. What is supposed to be a tool; then becomes a weapon. That should not happen!
Once you serve God and have spent time at His feet, your ways change automatically. Following God way becomes a part of you; you become accustomed to living in that way! With that, you do not need to put in any extra effort to be noticed! Your life can be an example to people you have never spoken to or people who are not within your circles! Keep your eyes on God; your actions will speak for themselves!
In Daniel 4, we see that the king had a second dream. This time, he called on Daniel to interpret the dream. Daniel was able to do so because of the relationship he had built with God. Daniel’s ability to interpret the kings dream (coupled with the situation with Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nigo) caused the king to believe in God. So, he began to sing praises on to God. The king acknowledged God’s power and might over everything and everyone on earth- even “…those who walk in pride…”
Today, the Holy Spirit wants to remind us of our mission- to go out and be fishers of men! The Holy Spirit want to strengthen you and encourage you with this message! No matter who the person is or where the person comes from, you are fully equipped to win souls. Daniel and his friends were able to rescue the soul of a man who high up the social class- the king. Do not let anyone or anything be a barrier to achieving your mission. Just like Daniel and his friends, let us set our eyes on God- obeying His Word and seeking Him every day! God bless!
Pray for the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
Pray asking the holy Spirit for strength and courage to spread God’s Word.
Pray asking the Holy Spirit to help you grow your relationship with God.
Pray asking for strength to stay focused on God.
Pray that you are able to set your eyes on Him.
Pray that your life is an example to many of God’s unconditional love.
Pray that Holy Spirit guide you; as you embark on this journey.
Pray, committing your life in God’s hands.
Thank God for the opportunity to get closer to Him.
End by just worshipping and praising Him.
I thank you for my life. I thank you for giving me another beautiful day. I ask that you guide me and protect me. I pray that I will choose you in every situation that I face. And that my life will be a testimony and an example to many that I have Christ living in me. Thank you, Lord, for sending your son to die on the cross and wipe my sins away. I lift your name high for you are Alpha and Omega. Amen!
Today, as you relax at the end of another day, everyone must praise the Lord! The time for us to rise up and be fishers of men is now! The Holy Spirit is available to help and equip you! Hallelujah! God will ask you about it! What will your response be?
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out!
