Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously. Daniel 6:10 NASB
Do we allow situations in life dictate our walk with God?
Daniel spent time with the Lord three specific times a day – bowing in humble thanks. A decree came down that any man who bowed down to anyone besides the king himself would be thrown in the lion’s den. Daniel’s choice was God over anyone else and any situation. His priority was God.
🌹How about you? Is God above all others and every situation in your life? Is He your priority? Are you God-centered? Is your life “as usual” no matter what is going on around you?
I will extol You, my God, O King, And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Psalms 145:1-2 NASB
David made a commitment to bless and praise our Lord’s name everyday forever and ever. Are you familiar with David’s life? It wasn’t a bed of roses. He spent many years running from a king who wanted him dead, suffered the loss of two sons, made some poor choices in his life and yet he is going to praise God daily!?
Why? Because He is God.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations. Psalms 145:13 NASB
Do you have any reason not to praise and bless our Lord today? Tomorrow? Forever?
🌹Focus your praise on Him starting today. It will change your perspective, disposition, and attitude.
