Excellence Is In You

Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him ; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm (Daniel 6:3).

God has already put in you an excellent spirit. In the scriptures, Daniel typified one who dealt excellently in his affairs, because “an excellent spirit was in him” (Daniel 6:3)

Anointed men and women in the Old Testament had the Holy Spirit ‘come upon them,’ but today , he lives in you! He’s the Spirit of excellence ; hence it’s his ministry to cause you to excel in everything you do. When you recognize this truth, walking in excellence will become a natural occurrence, even as you excel in every endeavour.

To “excel” means “to distinguish oneself”;”to stand out and surpass laid down standards’;”to do something to a greater degree than the normal or required standards.”Invariably, in your job, at school, in business or ministry, you ought to stand out from the crowd! Your results should be impeccable, outstanding and inspiring.

You don’t have to pray to God to make you excel, for excellence is in you; all you need do is recognize it and express it. Choose to excel; make the conscious effort to improve your mind by studying the right materials. Become studious; don’t loaf or laze around, for laziness isn’t a quality of an excellent spirit-go the extra mile! Reject mediocrity and mundanity from your life. This is your set time to excel , and it doesn’t require our struggling; it’s the life you’ve been called to live. So keep excelling in the name of Jesus.
