Scripture: Daniel 11:32
Daniel 11 describes the conflict of the end-times, the conflict of the last days and the warfare that rages around us. This verse says, “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” The people who intimately know their God shall be strong and take action. How do we grow into this supernatural strength? The first thing to do is to believe that the foundational pillar is built on accepting and aligning ourselves with the first Sonship Gift, I am chosen. Each of us has been chosen by the Most High, one out of many, chosen and judged worthy to receive and been separated for favor. It does not make any difference what the circumstances look like! God’s Word speaks to the issue of adversity and why that develops around people who are chosen and called. In our hearts let’s settle the issue! Agree with God that He chose us, and He chose us for a purpose. And we must be determined to fulfill it and then be faithful and resolute to move toward what God has fashioned for our destiny! It is time we acquaint ourselves and get to know the yah-dah, the ultimate of intimacy with our God. Those resolute ones are the ones who are strong and carry out great exploits! The ESV version says, “…stand firm and take action.” The NASB says “…display strength and take action”. The NET Bible says, “…act valiantly.” Being chosen is the first Sonship Gift, the first stone. There are eight more! This should make us want to diligently seek and explore the depths of being chosen.
