Topic: Go deeper
Scripture : Daniel 2:22
“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness,and light dwells with him”.
Have you heard of Daniel, That enormously gifted young man the bible talks about?
I just want to draw your attention to something…
God gave him the ability to know and to understand things that naturally the human mind wouldn’t be able to deal with.
This young man was strongly devoted to God and his trust in the Lord was mind blowing. So because of this and other traits he exhibited, he found favor in God’s sight and that of men.
God gave him and his friends knowledge and understanding of all kinds and wherever they stood with their peers, they were singled out as the exceptional ones.
Daniels personality is simply one to adhere to and because he believed fully in the Almighty God it reflected in everything he did also.
There are many of us who are just an idea away from our breakthrough but we don’t know how to even get to the point of getting that which is needed.
I particularly want to remind you that God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,(Ephesians 3:20)
I want to tell you that even your wildest imagination is just the beginning of the things God can and will do in your life.
God particularly tell his children to ask if they need wisdom and freely he will give. (James 1:5)
But the thing is, the depth and magnitude of what you receive also depends on what you are willing to invest, that is, the amount of time and other resources with which you invest.
Daniel and His friends didn’t sleep for the favor of God to locate them, they took steps to meet it.
They deeply sought after the God of the deep and received deeper revelations.
And the revelations they received changed their whole life. These revelations came at a cost but that’s a topic for another day.
Point is, you cannot dig shallow pits and expect to find diamonds hidden in them, no!
You must do what is not being done. You must dig deeper to find deep treasures, you must go the extra mile.
Somethings are not meant for ordinary Christians all because they are shallow, but if you will dare to be an extraordinary Christian who go places where no one thinks of then you will find things no one has ever found.
1. Thank God for today, this message and your life.
2. Ask for forgiveness of sin.
3. Ask God to help you and grace you to be more than an ordinary Christian and lay other prayer requests before Him.
4. Thank Him for hearing and answering your prayer in Jesus name, amen.
