YOU WILL BE EXALTED. - Bro. T. Stephen

I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  The blessed word that  God  has  given  for  you  today  is  from the book of  Daniel 6-23 , “So Daniel was taken up out of the den. And no injury whatever was found on him because he  believed in his God.”

Fom the above passage we learn that   King  Darius  was  sure  that  Daniel’s God would  save him from the mouth of the lion.  Though he was  restless the whole night to have put Daniel in the Lion’s  den, as per the law, yet deep in his heart there was a struggle, within him. He spent the night fasting. And no musicians were brought before him. He spoke to Daniel saying “  Your God whom you serve continually,   He  will  deliver  you.”   The king  knew  that the living God  of  his  servant  Daniel  was  able to protect him.  So early in the morning, when the King  found Daniel alive in the lion’s den, he asked his men to take Daniel out of the den. His joy knew no bounds. 

We see the power of God over the fiercest creatures, and believe his power to restrain the roaring lion that goes about   continually seeking to devour. Yet   Daniel   was kept perfectly safe, because he believed   in  his  God. Those   who  boldly  and  cheerfully trust in God to protect them in the way of duty, shall always find  God  as  a present help. Thus the righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked   comes   in his stead. 

Dxaniel was a noble Jewish youth of Jerusalem. He was taken into captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. So Daniel was a refugee. Although Daniel was a captive in the land of Babylon, he was not ashamed of  his relationship with his God. He did not have any sort of inferiority complex in him. He was bold to stand for God and his faith.  He was a man of prayer. Therefore God raised Daniel to a high office by his royal master Darius.  Those who suffer from   inferiority   complex display faithlessness. They seem to have lost all hope  in themselves.  They may even say, “Look I cannot do anything.” I can never be successful. I will never achieve   anything in life.” You should never have the attitude of inferiority complex in you, It will suppress you   and then   you can never shine in your life. 

Many children due to inferiority complex fail to dress well. They think they need to show their humbleness only by being poorly clad.  This is not what God expects of you. God wants you to look majestic. The Bible says, “Put on the garment of humbleness.” Humbleness is revealed from the heart and not through dressing. Many show their humbleness through their code of dressing but in their heart they are proud. “God resists the proud. But gives grace to the humble.”Daniel was humble in nature. Though he was a slave he humbled himself, before God. He was never proud even though he was well placed, and held a high office in Babylon. 

If we live in the fear of God, and walk according to that rule, peace shall be upon us. We   should never lose our hope and faith in God.  Neither should we have the quality of inferiority complex. It will only ruin our progress in life. It will keep us backward and prevent us from going forward in life. The kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever, are the Lord’s; and we are his redeemed children. We represent Him therefore we need to be bold in Him. Be strong in Him.  May we be doers, as well as believers of His word, If not we shall find to have deceived ourselves.  So may God give you the grace to analyse for yourself and get rid  of  inferiority complex. God bless you.   

Prayer:  Our   loving   heavenly   Father, we   thank   You for this blessed day.  Dear Lord  we  thank You for teaching us through this message that  we  should not have  inferiority complex in us.  Remove such an attitude from us and help us to be bold and majestic before others. May we learn to be humble and not proud. Help us to show humbleness in heart through our action. Exalt us like Daniel. 

In Jesus name we pray
