TEXT: Daniel 11:32
And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Doing exploits means to do heroic and extraordinary deeds. It means to succeed in an unusual way. The plan of God is to display His superior wisdom through you so that you can have enough leverage to mentor/train men unto godliness. God does not only want to showcase you to men, He wants to showcase the glory of His wisdom in you to Principalities and Powers. He says
”To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God…” (Eph 3:10).
You are to manifest wisdom superior to angels. Because if you have Jesus, you have the treasure house of God’s wisdom (Col 3:2).
The story was once told of four young men who were unusually outstanding in an unusually negative situation. These young men were princes of Israel but suddenly became slaves of the Babylonian Monarch upon the conquest of Israel. Terrible as their experiences were, yet, during an assessment they were found to be 10 times better than their mates. One of them, Daniel, was so outstanding and excellent that he became a consultant to 3 successive kings and kingdoms who depended heavily on on his wisdom.
Today, Daniel shows us that the secret of excellence and exploits is knowing God. As a prophet, Daniel was able to see our generation some 2600 years before time. He warned that the devil would corrupt men with flattery–evidently by inciting them to do evil and satiating them with false success and glamour. Don’t you notice how the devil is trying hard to redefine values and success? Haven’t you noticed how people celebrate “successful” criminals and how young people make drug addicts and jailbirds their role models simply because of their seeming success in music career? God wants you to correct that by making you do exploits and displaying superior wisdom. Your success should dwarf their achievements, and this is in whatever endeavour you are involved in. Determine this year to seek the Lord. Learn of Him. Good thing is that He is ever ready to manifest himself to you if you will only seek him diligently (Heb 11:6).
Thank God for making giving you access to His wisdom
I declare that Jesus is made unto me wisdom and power
Declare that the wisdom of God is manifesting in you and through you
Declare that you are doing exploits in your job ministry and every where you may be
Ask God to reveal Himself to you by His Spirit
Pray for the Church that the wisdom of God will manifest through her for doing exploits
Pray for the Nation.
Pray for me too.
