|A Life Of Prayer|
|Daniel 6:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Daniel's practice was a life of prayer. It was the one thing that others could depend on was Daniel to pray. The second thing about Daniel was his house. His house was a place of prayer. This doesn't have to be an actual house. Luke 6 tells us about Jesus praying all night long on a mountain. At this time He was praying about calling 12 men that would be His followers as disciples. Is your house a place of prayer? If the church is the only place where you can get close to God then that's a sad thought. The third is that he opened up his windows that was towards Jerusalem. He wasn't ashamed for those to hear him prayer. How many have a problem praying at your own dinner table? We shouldn't be afraid or ashamed to pray. 1 Kings 8:46-50, Daniel was praying according to scripture. What's your Jerusalem? God doesn't dwell in Jerusalem nor in the temple or church house. God dwells within you if you've been born again. The fourth, he kneeled upon his knees. This means he was humbled, broken and at Gods will. If you're really wanting to affect things then you're going to have to be humbled. For Daniel just for as us, we should not let the ups and downs affect our prayers. Five, Daniel knew he was going to be thrown into a lions den and yet he continued to give thanks unto God. When it comes to praying we should not ask for something until we've given thanks to Him first. Daniel didn't know if God would deliver him or not but he still thanked God anyway. Are you bitter because you feel as if God didn't do it your way? God has never made a bad decision. Gods never messed anything up. The joy of having God is that you don't have to worry about finding a pastor or a friend in your very time of need. God is always there, always listening, and always loving.|

|Our Lifeline, Prayer|
|Daniel 6:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|While examining yourself, how often do you pray to God? Churches often have a revival once or twice a year but, while these revivals are good they do not last. We should have an internal revival daily within ourselves. Our human flesh does not want to humble itself to God. Most of the times we find ourselves on top of the mountain and not praying. We all need God on the mountain tops the same as in the valleys. How do you help people see the need they need? It's hard enough to see it in ourselves. Often in our lives the things around us are brought upon by disasters that happen around us. Most Wednesday night services were started because of the wars our country were in to pray for our loved ones and the countries safety. What's to be expected if we fully give ourselves to prayer? You may not be able to do a lot of things but the one thing that each and every person can do is pray. Do you truly care for the people around you? We must be honest when it comes to the works that we should be doing. We often say, "that's not my job", "they're not my family", etc. There have been great revivals in history. Simple men standing and proclaiming God to hundreds if not millions of lost and saved alike. Great revivals are not dictated on the time they were because great revivals have been going on since biblical times.|

|Living A Broken Life|
|Daniel 5:18-22 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God is able to bring anyone down to a humility. Your pride will take you down. Had can raise a person up and He most certainly can bring them back down. Everyday people let pride stop them from worshipping God. Do you think your life is needed by God for something your capable of doing? David's fall wasn't his lust but his pride that made him think that since he was the king he could have anything he wanted. Pride removed half of Heaven when Lucifer was thrown from it. Guess what kills churches today, pride. How should we live a life without pride? We should live broken, humbled. Phil 2:1-3, this should be our guide in our lives. How many times have you attended church and thought you're doing good. You've read your bible and prayed some during the week. But once you've entered the church and worship begins it tears thru you because of your lack prideful thoughts of thinking you've accomplished something. 1 Peter 5:6, Phil 2:5, stay humble! We are hypocrites because most say that we are good but we are not. Phil 2:6, Jesus was sent to become a human man. He is God incarnate therefore the greatest humility that a God would become a person. Thinking of who was worth Christ's death to remove our sins. Not one person is worth His love. We are to love our neighbor as ourselves. You will never accomplish that while having pride in your life. Money can disappear tomorrow. Your health while good today could turn horrible bad tomorrow.|

|Where Is Your Faith? (Part 2)|
|Daniel 3:16-30 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There are things about this world that it's not for God. There are those today that are told to deny their God and worship another God and if they don't death comes to them quickly. One shouldn't be a fool to those things in this world because we have been warned of those tests. One should make their mind up right now in whom they are going to serve no matter the circumstance. Just as the three men in Dan 3:16-30, they knew what was coming because they could watch the man made god being built. What kind of faith does it take to stand against a false god? The size of the faith is not the issue, it's the God behind it.
They were convinced, confidence and committed. They were also respectful in their attitude. Three were put in the furnace but four was seen. When they were called back out, three came out leaving the fourth one in the fire. In the time of your troubles, fiery times, God will be with you.
The world wants nothing to do with God . They try every way possible to remove Him each and every day. The bible is not just for Sunday's, it's also not just emergencies. Owners manuals are given out in order to know how to operate things just as the bible was given to know how to live and worship God.

|Christ is ALL|
|Colossians 2:6-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Daniel prophesied that Jesus would come and in Luke the prophecy came true. Mat 28:18 Christ is all powerful and He has been given the power from God. Col 3:10-11 Christ is all in all. Col 1:15-18 Take note of how many times "all" is used. Eph 1:22-23 Christ is all in all and if you do not have Christ then the opposite of all is nothing. In the first chapter of Genesis it plainly states that in the beginning there was nothing but God created ALL things, therefore Christ is over ALL things. Christ alone is God so there can't be any other god. John 17:1-2 He's not only over all things but also all flesh. So is there anything that Christ is NOT over? Does He have power over Satan? God didn't create evil, the being that He created choose to be evil therefore creating evil. God didn't create beings to be mindless but to have the ability to choose. This means that it's either life or death that one must choose from. After death there is a place that everyone will go upon their choice, it's either Heaven or Hell. With Christ it's either all or nothing therefore there is no middle ground. Why does people hate Christianity, because it declares only one way to salvation. Christ even holds the dominion of which Satan will be forever cast by Christ alone. John 5:22-23, Rom 14:8-9 He is a persons all in all. One can't have Christ and yet live for the devil. Christ can't live in ones heart and the heart yearn for worldly, devilish wants.
If you reject Christ, then you've rejected it ALL. When He speaks to your heart then that is the time that you can't be saved. Only Christ can save you. Only Christ can set you free.
