MEMORISE: 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. – Daniel 6:3

READ: Daniel 6:1-3 (KJV)

1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;

2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.

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.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 25-26

Open Heaven 8 January 2022 MESSAGE:

There is a link between dominion and excellence. This is the reason we shall be discussing the spirit of excellence today so that our dominion may not only become a reality but that it may also be everlasting.

What is excellence? To understand what excellence is all about, we must appreciate the good. However, excellence is far better than very good not to talk of good, fairly good and fair. As a matter of fact, the good level may not be good enough at another level. However, when we talk of excellence, it is hardly misunderstood. What happens when the Spirit excellence envelopes an individual? To start with, the one with the Spirit of excellence knows no impossibility. When the writing that spelt the judgment of Belshazzar could not be interpreted, the queen-mother advised that Daniel should be consulted. Why? The Bible says:

“Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.” – Daniel 5:12

Daniel was able to do the impossible because an excel.lent spirit was upon him. The Spirit of excellence makes the possessor see the invisible. Joseph also possessed an excellent spirit and so, he saw the seven years of plenty and seven years of famine a long time before they happened (Genesis 41). A person with an excellent spirit will understand what others around him may not understand as found in Daniel 7. Daniel was made to understand what the entire realm did not because he possessed the Spirit of excellence. A man with the Spirit of excellence succeeds where others fail. Beloved, you need the Spirit of excellence to succeed in life and it can only be found in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is the excellent Spirit and His presence upon us gives us power to do exploits (Acts 1:8). Give your life wholly to Jesus Christ so He can fill you with the Spirit of excellence.

Open Heaven 8 January 2022 PRAYER POINT:

Father, please fill me afresh with Your Spirit of excellence, in Jesus’ name.

Open Heaven 8 January 2022 HYMN 12: Nearer, My God to Thee

1. Nearer, my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

2. Though, like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee

3. There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou send’st to me
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee

4. Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony grief
Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God to thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

5. Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving thy sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly
Still all my songs shall be,
Nearer my God to thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!
