Daniel 6:3-5 (KJV): (3). Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the King thought to set him over the whole realm. (4). Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the Kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. (5). Then said these men, we shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
"The Law of an Excellent Spirit: Called Out Of to be Called Too"
In this season and "Hour of Acceleration" the harvest of productivity is quickly approaching. The called out ones the (Ekklesia); must manifest the fruits of the harvest. This fruit comes from the trees that were planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper (Psalm 1:3). It is crucial because the time is nigh that the "Called Out Ones" must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man work (John (9:4).
The key to being Productive, Effective, and Proficient, which is the embodiment of an "Excellent Spirit" in action, is found in Daniel 6:3-4. Daniel was one of God’s servants who mastered the art of remaining true to who he was and to whose he was, no matter the trial, circumstance or situation or tribulation or location. He withstood the tests that were thrown at him, and prevailed because of his trust and worship of the one true God. Daniel and his friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, were "called out of to be called too." God’s power was displayed in these chosen vessels. Let us now draw our attention to 4 points of interest:
Because of an " excellent spirit" in Daniel which represents (God’s presence and power), He was preferred (elected, selected, appointed) to be placed in a position of honor and authority over great regions because he did not compromise his God. He remained true in his beliefs.
Because of an "excellent spirit" within him; he was always placed in the line of fire (opposition) from those that were jealous of his position of authority which was greater than their own.
Because of an "excellent Spirit "of faithfulness within him, the oppossers/oppressors/depressors could find no occasions, fault or error concerning him.
Because of an "excellent spirit" within him, when the enemy couldn’t find any wrong doing in him, they looked for blame in his God (if God is a God of Love then why???). They wanted to tear down his belief system. They wanted his God to look small, and powerless. They wanted his God to look lower then their Kings.
The intent of this meditation, on purpose, is to remind and challenge you as a "called out" one who has been "called to" a greater performance of the Greater in you; to examine the "spirit" that lies within you and to know if you are truly His instrument of "excellence." Remember you can only have the character and qualities of Him, if you are His. Daniel and friends stood with and for God then; will you be able to stand with and for God now, because you were "Called Out of the world to be Called To" the world to glorify Him?"
