TEXT : DANIEL 11 VS 32b.
The more you know the ways of God, the higher the anointing you carry. Anointing for exploits is in levels.
Our text says ….but they that know their God shall be strong and do exploits, this simply means the more of God you know the higher your level and the more exploit you are capable of doing.
It is a stated truth that without God you can do nothing John 15 vs 5.
Also, it is logical to know that the level of your relationship with God will determine the level at which God can trust you with His power and authority, to whom much is given, much is expected.
1. Daniel knew the God he was serving, so when he was told to indirectly deny his God, he said I will rather die than to deny the almighty whose acts and ways are unsearchable. Dan 6 vs 1-28.
The knowledge of God by Daniel promoted him from being a mere Babylonian captive to a force to be reckoned with in decision making all over the province.
I prophesy in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, from now you will be considered in your locality before any decision is taking in Jesus name.
2. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego is another set of people that attained a level that ordinarily and humanly cannot be achieved at that space of time.
They told the king that they rather burn than bow to the image which they know is erected to diminish their mighty God. Dan 3 vs 1-30.
Their relationship with God made them declared to Nebuchadnezzar, that the God they are serving is able to deliver them, and went further to reassured the king that, if par adventure God decides not to deliver them on this occasion they will still rather burn than bow.
this act of the Hebrew boys promoted them to the pinnacle of power in the province.
My prayer is that in the day of our test for promotion, we shall not fail in Jesus name.
3. David was another person that got to the next level very quickly, because of the knowledge of God he knew, he told Goliath that today because you defiled the armies of the living God of Isreal, I will present your carcases to the fowls of the air. 1 Samuel 17 vs 1-58.
David told Saul his testimonies in 1 Sam 17 vs 34 – 36 and used that to settle the mind of all the Israelites that he knows his God is capable of delivering the uncircumcised Philistines into their hands after the defeat of their giant.
4. In Acts 4. the used to be timid Peter declared to the whole council of governors whether it is them they should listen to or God.
Peter and John were confident of their God, and this opened doors and took them to the next level that was humanly impossible.
I decree in the name of Jesus Christ, you are getting to your next level very shortly in Jesus mighty name.
