GOD IS BETTER // SEPTEMBER 15, 2023
To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning ... In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.
Daniel 1:17, 20
Daniel and his friends had set their boundary at what they put into their bodies, telling the chief official to test them for 10 days by giving them only vegetables and water and compare their appearance with the others who ate the royal food. The results were in: they looked healthier, were better nourished and were ten times smarter than anyone in the kingdom.
We can get caught up on what we aren't, worried we don't have the training, education or experience. But God can make us ten times better than the experts! God can exceed any level of experience or education, making us better at school, at work or in relationships. Perhaps we need to stop talking about how the world is ten times harder, and allow God to make us ten times smarter.
Daniel chose God, who can supernaturally empower you to accomplish things better than what the world has to offer. He has the power to give you ability and wisdom beyond your natural comprehension. Spend more time in his presence than in the world. What the world offers may seem better, but following God is better.
