But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
For Daniel, maintaining his relationship with God was more valuable to him than any other thing. When you face any crisis, what will be God`s position in your life? When you walk in integrity, you will only be trapped by the good things you do. The people that hated Daniel said, “We cannot find anything against him unless something that has to do with the worship of his God”.
Do you know that the most hypocrite people in the world today are found in the Church? Some of you can pray for five hours and shut the answer to your prayers by just one gossip because there are principles that make God answers prayers. The Bible says, “You can pray amiss”. Not that you didn`t pray, rather, you disqualified yourself for God to give you the answer. As for the temptations, no matter what you do, they will come because Jesus was also tempted. The Bible says, “He was tempted in every way that we are but He did not sin.” (Heb. 14:15) If Jesus was tempted, then who are you to think that you cannot be tempted?
Pray and ask God to help you walk in integrity
We don’t have a charisma problem, we have a character problem so work on your character.
