The true testimony -- Rev. Dr. J. Samuel Sudhakar

Scripture : 'For the spirit of the holy gods is in thee' Daniel 4:18.

You have to be a testimony for LORD Jesus Christ wherever you are and whatever you are. You may be a businessman, or having a small job with a low profile. But you are to walk with the LORD and let the people see the light of God in you.

Daniel was in a heathen land an unknown country full of idol worship and sins. But he purposed in his heart not to defile himself. Hence, the LORD safeguarded him and took care of him. Not only that, the LORD gave him enough wisdom to tackle any problem in that land. When King Nebuchadnezzar had a vision, it was Daniel who gave the interpretation of that vision and explained very clearly the Word of the LORD. Once when King Nebuchadnezzar dreamt a dream and forgot the dream, Daniel not only revealed the dream but gave the interpreation also. The heathen king testified that Daniel was able to interpret because the spirit of the holy gods was in him. What a wonderful and mighty testimony of Daniel!

Today, God looks out for people like Daniel who will be zealous for God and not compromise with the whims and fancies of the world. He looks out for people who fear God and are truthful in their hearts. My friend, it may be you today. When the call of God comes to you, surrender yourself totally and mend your ways. Let there be a right spirit within you. Honour God in everything. Let God be your priority. Let nothing of this world defile you. Cleave to God faithfully, so that people will testify that the Spirit of God is in you.

Prayer : LORD, anoint me with the Holy Spirit that I may shine for Thee. Amen.

Thought for the Day : Obey the Holy Ghost and be a blessing.
