Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 14 W 4 D 4.

Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you made it. I love being here. This is my stay, a place of comfort, strength, and power.

We lead ourselves into The Throne Room as we meditate on The Book of Daniel. We move on to Daniel 6:13 today. It reads, 

"So they answered and said before the king, “That Daniel, who is one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.”"

See how they turned the king's words against him? They have made the seeming good intent of the king and that of Daniel be at odds against each other. Isn't that just like their father's? He comes to steal, kill, and destroy. His children are no different.

These are difficult for me to talk about in times past. Classifying people as children of the devil would have typically been a difficult word to come out of my mouth. I love people. I believe in people. 

I see everyone as a brother or sister, but as my mother once told me, everyone is not like that. I used to dismiss it in times past, but life has taught me otherwise. Not that I now go about looking for children of the devil to castigate them. Nope. Nope. Nope.

To do that is to justify their own foolishness, and make them look nice. I still love everyone. I still assume the best of everyone, but as Maya taught us, "when they show me their color the first time, I don't dismiss it." I believe it, the first time.

That is what Jesus meant when he asked us to be as wise as the serpents. There is no religion or wisdom above He who is the truth himself. I choose to believe Him. Wisdom does not mean I now pick up arms to fight. I must not forget the son of whose I am.

I am a child of God, and I must never lose sight of that, nor ever take off my white clothing. That is why Jesus did not only tell us to be as wise as the serpent. He balanced it by also telling us we need to be as gentle as the dove. 'Tis a two edge sword.

'Tis holy and good warfare. The battle is not ours but the Lord's. Sun Tzu probably says it best when he counseled on who the supreme warrior is. Sun Tzu says, “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

Let's pray.

The Saint.
