An Excellent Spirit
By: Rev. Carol Arvin
An Excellent Spirit
Daniel is reported to have had an excellent spirit (Daniel 6:3). In verse 22 Daniel spoke to the king from the den of the lions. He told the king the Lord had sent His angel to shut the lions mouths so, they could not hurt him. Daniel said to the king that he was found innocent before the Lord and innocent before the king as the king knew. To me one of the keys to this verse is that that Daniel was found innocent before God and man. He had acted righteously daily to the point that his accusers could not find fault in him. Daniel 6:4-5).
How To Remove The Sin Trap & Get An Excellent Spirit
Today, we know that no one is perfect but, we can strive to obtain righteousness to the best of our ability. Should we fall and slip into a sin, it is good to know that we have an advocate with the Father through our savior Jesus Christ (1John 2:1). If we ask forgiveness of that sin the Lord will forgive us. However, we aren't to make a practice of sinning over and over again then asking forgiveness with the intention of going back to the sin we were just in.
If a person does this his heart isn't right before the Lord because the person doesn't have any sorrow or true repentance for the sin, or sins they are committing.
I believe that we should make it a practice to do good. Isn't that just what Jesus did? He went about helping people and setting them free from Satan’s bondage?
Jesus set people free from
- being crippled,
- unable to speak, or see etc. The people he set free went from his presence happy and healed.
Let us follow the Lords example of going about doing good in the earth as led by the Holy Spirit. May the love of the Lord we spread in the earth increase to where our good becomes even better, until it becomes the best that we can achieve for the Kingdom Of God. In whatever we undertake to do let us endeavor to do it with an excellent spirit to the best of our ability and as unto the Lord. So that our lights may shine brighter and brighter until the dawning of the new day in God’s Kingdom.
Proverbs 4:8 in King James reads, But the path of the just (is) as the shining light that shineth more and more until the perfect Day.
It takes courage and a lot of work, in order to have an excellent spirit in this day and hour. Don't be discouraged! But, be faithful as Jesus, is faithful. That is how to have an excellent spirit.
