Daniel’s lifestyle

  • You will agree with me that Daniel was a righteous man.
  • God credits righteousness to those who exercise faith in Him (Rom. 4:3).
  • Daniel had such faith in God!
  • Daniel did not compromise in his belief and relationship with God.
  • You see there is a part that we have to play, that’s in our belief and our character – in other words, our lifestyle.
  • It was from this place that Daniel could pray powerfully and effectively.

Scripture reading: James 5:13-18

  • The Christian’s most powerful resource is communion with God through prayer.
  • The results are often greater than we thought were possible.
  • Some people see prayer as a last resort to be tried when all else fails.
  • This approach is backward – prayer should come first.
  • Because God’s power is infinitely greater than ours, it only makes sense to rely on it – especially because God encourages us to do so.

Your turn

  • Do you have any sin that you need to confess? Find another believer that you can confess your sin to and ask this person to pray with you.
  • Is there any person you need to ask forgiveness from or that you need to forgive? Please do so!
  • Daily bring your prayers and petitions to God (Philippians 4:6-7).
