Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you. – Dan 5:14
The king of Babylon had heard of Daniel. He called Daniel because of his reputation: that the Spirit of God was in him, and that he possessed a level of “light…understanding and excellent wisdom” the rest of the world did not.
Daniel made God famous! People wanted to be around Daniel because of the things God did through him. Do you believe this can be your testimony too? What if the Holy Spirit moved so powerfully through your life that your boss always called you for the most demanding (but also most rewarding) projects? What if the wisdom of God came out of your mouth so often that your friends always wanted to seek your advice? What if every acquaintance you have – even though they haven’t met Jesus yet – wanted to be around you because they simply sensed something was different about you?
Life with Jesus should be so radical that other people notice. Daniel didn’t try to attract attention. He simply walked out God’s will for his life, and everyone stopped and stared. You have the same Spirit in you as Daniel had in him; so your life should bear the same fruit!
Father, I want to make You famous. I want to put Your power, wisdom, and glory on display – everywhere I go, and for everyone I meet. Make me a walking representation of Your goodness and Your glory, in Jesus’ name!
