Daniel 2:17-23 NIV “Then Daniel returned to his house and explained the matter to his friends Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. He urged them to plead for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that he and his friends might not be executed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said: ‘Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.'”
Daniel refused to compromise. He ate the food of which God approved. He fasted and prayed. And even though Daniel was in Babylonian captivity, forced into bondage by the king himself, Daniel did not do as the Babylonians did. Men how many of you use the excuse that you’re in bondage to debt, society, racism, and poverty so you have to do what Babylon does to survive? God is saying to men of God to stop compromising right now in the name of Jesus. The answers to your visions and dreams have been tied up in the spiritual realm by principalities because you continue to compromise. No matter what or whom has you bound, be obedient to God and be true to who God created you to be. Fast. Pray. Know more Word than the women of God so you can instruct us in the Word. Apply the Word even in prison situations. You’ve been eaten alive over and over again because you won’t die to flesh and live for Christ. Daniel wasn’t afraid to give God glory. He worshipped God and thanked Him when God delivered and favored Daniel. You are a man of visions and dreams and God has the answers and interpretation for your dreams. He wants you to stop compromising. Dr.J.
