Topic:An excellent Spirit
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 (KJV)
Every believer has the Spirit of excellence which is the Holy Spirit, but not everyone walks in excellence because first of all they are ignorant of this and secondly they are not willing to pay the price for excellence which is diligence.
Having an excellent spirit is to be the outstanding and extraordinary person that God has created you to be.
It is the excellent spirit that Daniel had that gave him access to the ear of a king that had no relationship with God.
And there are some people and places that God needs us to take the gospel to that won’t be attracted to the Bible in our hands, but to our excellent spirit.
- It’s the A student that may only be able to share Jesus with the atheists professor.
-It’s the star athlete that may only be able to reach the nonbelieving coach.
-It’s the excellent employee that may only be able to get to the nonbelieving boss.
-It’s the excellent music, excellent preaching and the excellent video quality that churches produce that may only be able reach the next generation.
Because one day, somebody is going to notice your excellent spirit and ask you what is it that causes you to do things the way you do and like Daniel you can say it is Jesus, the Lord Almighty. My Creator is excellent, He lives in me and because I have an excellent creator that lives in me, I have no choice but to be excellent.
Having an excellent spirit is important because it impacts our witness.
Excellence is not the same as perfectionism. God isn’t asking you to be a perfectionist, He’s asking you to be excellent. Perfectionism will kill you, excellence will promote you! Perfectionism is trying to please people. Excellence wants to please God. It’s time to start doing things with EXCELLENCE! Are we serving with excellence? Are we leading with excellence? Are we working with excellence? We’ve got to be excellent!
Prayer: Thank you Lord for your Word to me today, I receive grace to walk in excellence and when I forget please remind me that an Excellent Spirits lives in me.May I be all that You have called me to be, in Jesus Name.(Amen)
