Hebrews 12:10 “While we were children, our parents did what seemed best to them. But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best.” (MSG)
The concept of “training for reigning” is one we cannot exhaust but let me point you to one or two key issues as we do a recapitulation. Hear this:
Daniel 1:3 “The king told Ashpenaz, head of the palace staff, to get some Israelites from the royal family and nobility”
Daniel 1:4 “–young men who were healthy and handsome, intelligent and well-educated, good prospects for leadership positions in the government, perfect specimens!–and indoctrinate them in the Babylonian language…”
Daniel 1:5 “The king then ordered that they be served from the same menu as the royal table–the best food, the finest wine. After three years of TRAINING they would be GIVEN POSITIONS IN THE KING’S COURT.” (MSG)
An earthly king gave an order that some young men should be trained for three years after which they’ll be made to reign if they do well. If an earthy king could do that, what about our heavenly Father?
Friend, God has thrown open the gate to greatness and reigning in life, before our very eyes, the question is will you excel at training?
The training was demanding but these young men endured and went the extra mile. Not eating the food served simply shows their commitment to training and what they were ready to give up, in order to excel. What price are you ready to pay?
Look at the result of the training of Daniel and the three Hebrew boys:
Daniel 1:18 “At the end of the time SET BY THE KING FOR THEIR TRAINING, the head of the royal staff brought them in to Nebuchadnezzar.”
Daniel 1:19 “When the king interviewed them, he found them far superior to all the other young men. None were a match for Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. AND SO THEY TOOK THEIR PLACE IN THE KING’S SERVICE.”
To be continued…
