Daniel 1:1-2:23; 1 Peter 3:8-4:6; Psalm 119:65-80; Proverbs 28:14
Serving God gives us advantages. Whenever God’s way is juxtaposed against the world’s way, God’s way wins. This is a little known truth. So many try to fit in and become like the world and when they do this, they miss seeing the real power of God.
Daniel and his three friends were in a foreign land but took the bold step to be different. The others ate the fine food from the King’s table. But, Daniel and his friends ate the way God had prescribed. It was a huge risk for them to chose God’s way but they had such a confidence that God’s way was best.
Are you convinced that God’s way, though different, is the best way? Would you be willing to take a bold stand and go against the grain to maintain your Biblical principles? Would you say “no” to the world in order to say “yes” to God? There is a supernatural advantage granted to those who will stick with God’s way.
