Today’s Scripture(s) – Daniel 6:4,10
“Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.” … “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.”
When I opened my bible this more at Daniel Chapter 6 I had written at the top of the page in the color red “Let Nothing Keep You From, The Lord!” I had written those words a long time ago just over the top of verse 10. Then I heard the Lord speak into my spirit these words ‘The Integrity Within’. Then some other things began to flood within my thoughts. Of course everyone knows that at this time the Holy Spirit had not yet been given because Christ had not yet come. Daniel was one of the Hebrew children taken captive at the time of king Nebuchadnezzar. God the Father had given Daniel the gift of interpreting dreams. Daniel had been favored by kings and Daniel was one of the 3 presidents over Darius’s kingdom and he was made ‘first’ and to whom the princes gave account to and then there were those in high ranks that were jealous of the position that Daniel had been place in before the king, king Darius. You see Daniel was wise, Daniel 6:3 says “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” Daniel was well aware of the jealousy that was around him and Daniel knew the plot that was hatched by the officials to try to destroy him. But, what did Daniel do? He did what he always did 6:10 “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.” Daniel’s integrity was to be excellent before the Lord, no matter what. Daniel’s integrity was to be excellent in trusting the Lord, no matter what. Daniel’s integrity was to be excellent in worshiping, praising and giving thanks unto the Lord, no matter what. Daniel’s integrity was to do all that he did with integrity and excellence, as unto the Lord. And…. The Holy Ghost had not yet been given! Many of us say that we have the Holy Spirit within, but we do not walk in integrity, do not have an excellent spirit within we do not walk in the Spirit and NOT fulfil the lust of our flesh, the lust of our eyes or the pride of life. As a matter of fact, we fulfill the lust of our flesh, the lust of our eyes and walk in pride. Many of us say that we have the Holy Spirit within and will only pray at church or when things are going wrong in our lives. Many of us have made God the Father SANTA CLAUS and say within that God is God only when I need and want ‘things’ ‘stuff’ and so on. When there is integrity unto the Lord within, we will not so easily cuss someone out. When there is integrity unto the Lord within, we will not so easily fornicate and commit adultery. When there is integrity unto the Lord within, we will not so easily lie and cheat. When there is integrity unto the Lord within, we will not so easily gossip and backbite. When there is integrity unto the Lord within, we will not so easily try to steal His glory. When there is integrity unto the Lord within, we will become determined to seek His kingdom and His righteousness and strive to do what is right, pleasing and holy unto the Lord.
