Fear of the Lord are riches

Fear of the Lord are riches

By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.  Proverb 22:4 (KJV)

“Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself” (Daniel 1:8)

Daniel was taken away from his Jerusalem and been brought before the king of Babylon determined in his heart that he will not defile him and requested to prince of eunuchs that he will never defile him by the food of King. Here Daniel took a first step for the Lord. Likely even in your life when you feel that you are out of the presence of Lord do not be discouraged. Take a step for Lord from wherever you are.

We could read in the next verse that,

“Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs” (Daniel 1:9)

God saw the determination that Daniel took for Him. And we could see Lord blessed Daniel and when the time has come that he should stand before the King. King found him ten times wiser than anyone in that country.

“In all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm” (Daniel 1:20)

Also, King bowed before Daniel and made him great man in his country,

“The king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel” (Daniel 2: 46)

“Then the king made Daniel a great man” (Daniel 2:48)

Friends whatever situation you may be in, Do not think that you are drowned and God will never hear you. Surely God will see His children wherever they are. Lord heard the determination said by Daniel in his heart when he was in Babylon (sin). Likely, Lord will surely hear your determination and will help you. Because Bible says,

“For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons” (Deuteronomy 10:17)

So leave back your situation, sins, troubles and take a step for the Lord today! May God Bless you and do miracles as in the life of Daniel. Amen.
