Daniel 11:32 (KJV) And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Selvaraj got a much-desired appointment as an assistant to a very powerful and influential business leader. Because he wanted to have a good relationship with this man he would be assisting in executing his duties as the chief executive of a leading global company, Selvaraj took his time to read all the books authored by this man. He did this because he understood that for him to know this man, he had to know the way he thinks, and reading his books was a good way to start.
But Selvaraj did not stop there. Before he resumed his appointment, he found out about the things this man liked and disliked. For example, he heard that this man did not like strong perfumes, so even though Salvaraj used a very strong perfume, he changed it.
Selvaraj became very close to his boss because he did his due diligence in that regard. In three years, he made CFO of the company because he became so close to his boss that his boss started seeing him as a son.
In the kingdom of God, there are some that know God more than others. The degree to which a person knows God is the degree to which he would be strong and do exploits. Closeness to God is intentional, it doesn’t happen by chance.
James 2:8 (NET) says “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double-minded”. God is open for all His children to know, but those who would be close to Him and truly do exploits are those who desire to be close to Him and act in accordance with this desire.
As you go into this new year, determine to know God more by giving more time to doing things that would help you know Him more. The Bible is God’s book to help you understand His ways and order your life accordingly. Prayer literally means talking to God. The longer you talk to a person daily, the more you will know him.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for bringing me into this glorious new year. Please help me to be closer to you more than ever before in this year. Help me to be strong and do exploits, In Jesus’ name. Amen.
