The Favored One - Part Fifteen.

 ​“So Daniel said to the steward whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then let our appearance be examined before you, and the appearance of the young men who eat the portion of the king’s delicacies; and as you see fit, so deal with your servants.”” ― Daniel 1:11-13, NKJV. 

TFO Keynote #43: Faith comes from knowing where your strength comes from; knowing where/what/who your source is, and comparing your challenge to Him. (Matthew 6:30; Psalm 23; Isaiah 42:13; 2 Chronicles 20:15) 

But, there is a God in Heaven... (Daniel 2:28a)

We are the sheep of His pasture. (Psalm 100:3; 97:5)

God is with us like a mighty man. (Isaiah 42:13; 2 Chronicles 20:15; Isaiah 40:22)

"Faith is the confidence, the assurance, the enforcing truth, the knowing."  Robert Collier.

TFO Keynote #44: Your faith or the lack thereof is influenced by the people you surround yourself with. Evil communication corrupts good manners. (1 Corinthians 15:33)

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with“. - Jim Rohn. Your association is affecting your personality. Wisdom is choosing who, when, where, and how you associate. You are the responsible party for the vessel called YOU.

"When you walk with someone, something unspoken happens. Either you match their pace or they match yours."  Sidney Poitier. 

We are spirits. We are energy, and our energy and spirit is in continual interaction with our environment. One is seeking to gain mastery over the other with a resultant effect governed by the law of averages, taking quantity and intensity into consideration. We are all in a state of continual influence - influencing and being influenced. We are the result of the influences of yesterday and will be the result tomorrow of the ongoing influences of today.

TFO Keynote #45: Man is God's intent for creation. Every other thing on earth was created to serve man in fulfilling God's original intent of His glory shining forth through man, His prototype.

God created man in His image and according to His likeness so that man would receive God as life and express God in all His attributes. (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:8)

The reason God created man in His image inwardly and with His likeness outwardly was not for man to do anything for God or to “be God’s friend”, but so that man and God would be organically one and God would be expressed through man on earth.

The Saint.
