Not my doing

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 8:28 pm

Daniel 2:30 But as for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because of any wisdom that I have more than all the living, but in order that the interpretation may be made known to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your mind.

Daniel is a model of how to behave in many ways.  In this situation he had a need.  He gathered Godly friends around him to pray and bring that need to You together.  You answered his request and he praised You for it, not just for what You did but for who You are.  When standing before the king he immediately pointed to You as the answer to the king’s request.  He downplayed his own role in the matter and presented himself as a simple messenger for the king’s benefit.  The result was that Daniel was elevated to a place of honour and power.

There are so many lessons to take from this.  When in trouble, pray.  Pray with company.  Wait for the answer.  Praise You and thank You for the answer.  Give You the credit You deserve and place You above me.  Make sure that You get the glory and let people know that this was not my doing.

Lord help me to live this out in every problem, to come to You first and to acknowledge Your hand in the solution.
