Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 13 W 2 D 3.

Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad as always you made it. 

We continue with our meditation in "The Book of Daniel." We are presently on Daniel 6:3, with the topic "An Excellent Spirit." Investigating this through the lives of the Patriarchs we today arrive at the life of Noah (Genesis 5:28-29; 6:8-9, 22; 7:5; Hebrews 11:7). 

The first thing we see is the circumstance around his birth. His father, who was the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, saw something in him that was not visible to the ordinary eye. More like what Moses' parents saw in him, "a goodly [special, destiny, marked] child."

Lamech described him as the "one [who] will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord has cursed.” And he turned out just as seen, as prophesied. Lamech gave heed to his intuition, the inner knower.

One with an excellent spirit is one with intuition. Or, better said, one who listens, pays special attention to the voice within, the gut feeling, and follows it through. That is the same thing we see in the life of Moses. The scriptures record, "he was like who saw Him who is invisible." 

One with an excellent spirit is not ruled from the outside in. Such a person understands intelligence dwells in the invisible realm. Hence, progression is all about enforcing the invisible in the visible domain. The invisible is ALWAYS higher, stronger and more efficacious than the visible realm. 

We see the same thing prevalent in Noah's life. He put credence and a whole lot of weight to the word he received from God. The scriptures record, "he was moved by holy fear." He believed a seemingly unbelievable word he received from God. 

A flood was inconceivable in his time, but that was precisely what God said was going to happens. Noah chose to believe God, against his own senses and experience. That is what differentiated him out. That was an excellent spirit operational in his life. 

Next, the testimony of his life was, "Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God." [Genesis 6:9] That could be read backwards, "Noah walked with God, which made him a just and perfect man." This he learned from his great grandfather, Enoch.

The excellency of spirit seen in his life came from his fellowship and walking in step with God. He did not have his own agenda. He was subjected to God's idea and purpose. He allowed God's word, precept, laws, and principles direct his every step. [Genesis 6:22; 7:5]

Can this be said of you? Are you walking with God?

Let us pray. 

The Saint.
