Wisdom on Purpose
(Daniel 1:8 NKJV)
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
Man’s ability to make decisions is one of his greatest peculiarities. In fact, God has so much respect for the will of man. A man’s will literally drives his life. The soul of a man is comprised of the mind, will and emotions. Man stores and processes information with his mind. He decides his actions with his will and he feels with his emotions.
Will, where the seat of decision lies, plays a major role in a man’s destiny. In Deuteronomy 30:19, Moses asked the people of Israel to choose between life and death. God always recommends life and the blessing but He requires your decision before He can bring His will to pass. Daniel made a choice that changed his life.
In a strange land, he refused to compromise the statues of the God of Abraham. He chose to be different. His choice led him to the wisdom that gave birth to his supernatural promotion. God is waiting for your choice. Make Him proud by making wise decisions that will birth your greatness.

MY DAILY CONFESSION
I have a strong foundation of wisdom for every aspect of my life. I do not live by the natural wisdom of this world, but I do operate by the divine wisdom of God. Christ, the wisdom of God, lives within me; I know the deep secrets of God. I walk with the wise, so I cannot be destroyed.
Evil communications do not proceed out of my mouth, but that which is good for the building up of others. My mouth is a well of life and wisdom flows out of it continually.
