Daniel 1:20–In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.
Daniel and his friends were in a difficult positions as they had been taken from their home country, forced into service in a new country, given lots of different situations and circumstances, yet they continued to honor and follow God in the midst of all of this. As a result, God blessed them and everything they did. God gave them the answers and responses to the things that they were being asked and God’s hand on them was being noticed by all who were around them. Would the same be said of us? When we face difficult and trying circumstances, are we focused on God and on staying true to Him and following Him? As we are faithful to Him, God will continue to give us favor with all the various areas that we are needed.
Father, no matter what I am going through, I will trust in You and stay true to my love and obedience to You. I know that You have a plan and that I will trust You. I will continue to praise You and I will give You the glory as You continue to work through me in all that I do. Thank You for Your grace and mercy.
