IZAYIK!

8) But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

THIS POST IS FOR ENCOURAGEMENT PURPOSES...

THAT WE MAY ALL PURPOSE IN OUR HEARTS NOT TO SIN AGAINST GOD. NOT BY MERE RITUAL, BUT RATHER BY PRACTICAL APPLICATION. CUTTING OFF ALL SIN IN OUR LIVES THAT WE MIGHT BE FOUND HOLY AND EXCEPTABLE BEFORE THE LORD.

LIVING ACCORDING TO THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS... "LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LOVE OTHERS AS YOURSELF. FOR THIS SUMS UP ALL OF GODS COMMANDMENTS."

OFTEN WE FACE OPPOSITION BY THOSE WHO LACK THE UNDERSTANDING GIVEN FREELY IN THE LIBERTY OF GODS SALVATION. WE ARE PUT DOWN, WHILE THE WAYS OF THE WORLD ARE EXORTED, BUT DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED. FOR GODS SECRET PLAN WILL BE REVEALED AND OUR FACES WILL SHINE LIKE STEPHEN'S... WE MUST REMAIN HUMBLE. SPEAKING LITTLE OF OURSELVES AND FOCUSSING OUR MINDS ON THINGS ABOVE...
GOD WILL FILL YOU WITH THE WORDS TO SAY WHEN FACED WITH THIS GREAT OPPOSITION. ONLY BE SILENT AND FORSAKE YOUR MIND AND HEART... FOR THEY ARE BOTH TRAITORS. BE STILL AND KNOW HE IS GOD... WHEN WE ARE STILL AND SILENT GOD SPEAKS. WE MUST DECREASE THAT HE MIGHT INCREASE.

MUCH LOVE TO ALL AND MAY GOD'S SPIRIT DWELL IN YOU!
