An Excellent Spirit

Apr 01, 2022

Today's Scripture

Daniel 6:3, NKJV
Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm.

Today's Word

Scripture talks about how Daniel had an excellent spirit. If you study his life, you find that he had excellent friends--Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego--who wouldn't bow down to the King Nebuchadnezzar's golden idol even if it meant losing their lives. No wonder Daniel was a person of excellence. His friends were people of integrity, people of great courage, people who wouldn't compromise, people who had big dreams for their lives just as he did.

Psychologists talk about the law of the group--that we associate with people the way we see ourselves. Have you noticed how gossips find other people who like to gossip? Negative people gravitate toward other negative people. Complainers find other complainers. Because birds of a feather flock together, make sure you're flocking to the right group. Victorious people associate with other victorious people. Successful people find other people who are successful. Happy people hang around other happy people. Eagles soar with other eagles. If you let go of the wrong people, God will bring the right people.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You for the blessings that always follow when I separate myself from anyone who drags me down. Show me if there is anything that is holding me back from having an excellent spirit. I look forward to the people You will bring into my life to inspire me to be my best. In Jesus' Name, Amen
