“….But the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits”. Daniel 11:32 (KJV)

Beloved, it’s not all about just coming to church or getting involved in activities. It goes beyond that. You must make up your mind to personally seek the Lord so that you can know Him for yourself. Today, believers are easily satisfied with just attending church programs and there is nothing wrong about that. But unfortunately, that is where they stop. Don’t stop there! You must be thirsty for God. Remember that only those who know their God would be strong and do exploits.

Don’t spend your energy and time seeking things. Seek God and I can assure you that the more of God you know, the more of His grace will overflow into your life. At that level, your capacity is enlarged, and you can do things that others cannot dare. Grace brings you to a level of holy audacity. David was able to confront Goliath in his days because of what he had developed capacity for. He had come to know God intimately while tending sheep in the wilderness. He had contended, triumphantly, with the bear and the lion. In the same vein, Goliath was just another obstacle.

My prayer for you is that you will grow in this grace and truly take charge of your world. I challenge you to arise from slumber and launch out into wherever it is the Lord has placed you. Refuse to just fold your arms and watch like a spectator while expecting things to fall on your plate like a bag of cherries. You may have been told that you cannot make it in that business but understand that no man has the final say over your life.

I declare, by the mandate of God, you will succeed in that same place where you failed before. The terrain may be tough, but you have what it takes to break through and be on top of your game. God never promised that things would be easy, but He promised that He will be your Helper, your Guide and your Strengthener.
