Daniel 6:4New International Version (NIV)
4 At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent.
Have you ever wondered how Daniel lived a life in which no one could find in who he was, what he did, and how he lived life behind closed doors? This is a thought provoking question for a Monday.
We see in the book of Daniel that he aligned his heart with God’s heart. He sought God’s will to be done through him. He had a consistent and prayerful focus, he grew as a God follower, and as a person and leader.
Daniel had a prayer life and practiced it three times a day. He would take time to worship God and looked toward Heaven. This habit got him thrown into a lions’ den. He spent the night watching an angel holding the mouths of the lions shut. Not one scratch was found on him the next day.
What if we chose that practice? What if we chose worshiping and praying to God. In turn it would be said that we were faithful men, responsible men, and trustworthy men. That would make an impact with our wives, children, places of work, and in our community.
How hard would it be to have people find fault in us? Today is a good day for heart alignment. When we choose a Kingdom focus and live a life of prayer and worship, we become a heavenly force to contend with. Let’s live a life where it is hard to find fault in how we live life.
