(KJV.) DANIEL 6:10
(10) Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
PRAY AND GIVE THANKS!
In a nutshell, let's study the lives of these three faithful men; Noah, believed, obeyed the words of God, to build an ark for an oncoming flood waters, he preached to the people, warned them about God's instructions to repent from their evil ways, they did not listen to his warnings, but continued in waywardness, eventually he completed the building of the ark, the flood waters came, cf. book of Genesis 6; Job, the man of God, though Satan, pestered with his life, destroyed all his worldly possessions, sent torments unto his soul, he did not curse God, but remained faithful to him, cf. book of Job; Prophet Daniel was righteous, feared God, worshiped and prayed to him; because of his faithfulness to God, enemies ganged up, formulated lies to King Darius in writing to sign a decree that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days should be cast into the den of lions; what a trap! After the decree was signed, Daniel still believed in God, continued to pray and give thanks to him, however, his faithfulness brought persecution and judgment upon him, he was thrown into the den of Lions to perish, but God was faithful as well, he delivered him out of the mouths of the lions, they did not devour him, cf. Daniel 6:7-24; therefore, today, if there is anyone among us, who are being persecuted for righteousness sake; I encouraged you not to worry, be faithful still, continue to do the will of Jesus Christ, no weapon formed against you shall prosper, he will deliver you from the hands of your enemies.
Beloved, when in persecutions, if possible, fast, pray and give thanks to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, leave all allegations upon his shoulders, trust him that he took all our troubles away by his sufferings, death, and resurrection, set us free forever, and whoever he sets free, is free indeed; therefore, be happy, and focus on him! he is coming back again soon. Continue ye in Love! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) II CORINTHIANS 4:7
(7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Gracefully, whenever the Holy Spirit descended upon a soul, there is a peaceful wind of sensation incorporated with his presence, to pour its anointing oil upon that soul with a purposeful essence, to fertilize, nurture, their spiritual gifts and talents, that are already planted in their spirits, cultivate the gifts, strengthen its roots to grow, and bear good fruits; therefore, during the Lent season, the anointing oil vials of heaven open up to anoint believers who would seek the face of Jesus Christ for spiritual power; we are in the appropriate time frame to ask for greater anointings of the Holy Spirit, for his good works; let's ask, it will be given to us, seek, we will find, knock, the door will be opened. cf Matthew 7:7; before we ask, seek, knock on the door; Jesus already answered our prayers.
Beloved, the point is, the treasures within us, is what we rely on to do the will of Jesus, it is not of ourselves to know how to do anything for Jesus, he is the vine, we are the branches, without him, what can we do for him? cf. John 15:5; therefore, let us not waste the excellency of the power of God, within us, rather, be aware that we are treasures in earthen vessels, discern behaviors that contaminate the spirits, avoid them, to keep our vessels in sanctification and honorability, utilizing its spiritual powers for the benefit of others. Continue ye in Love! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) Proverbs 21:6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

(KJV.) GALATIANS 4:18
(18) But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.
Grace be unto you! At certain point in our lives, there is a burning sensation that fires within our souls, this type of a sensation, energizes our spirits to go above and beyond the norms, fervently engage ourselves in doing more of whatever we desire to do; however, when one is caught up in certain practice or behavior, it can either be psychologically harmful or spiritually beneficial to that individual, produce a negative or positive influence on others; therefore, let us ponder on what we focus on, engage in, cannot forgo, do without, on daily basis, search our hearts to discern, if that behavior is positively or negatively influencing others.
In this twenty-first century, calamities are happening over the world, simply because, at times, we pay too much attention to cell phone gadgets than oncoming traffics, as a result, many lives were lost in automobile accidents; for example, some of us, spent time bonding with cell phones, text messages, watching television, prefer peaceful times with electronic gadgets over quality times with loved ones, as a result, our spouses and children cry out for lovely associations, to silence our kids, we get them their own gadgets, to separate them from bonding together with us, that we may spend times with whatever we enjoy doing; don't get me wrong, I have nothing against cell phones, I am speaking to you and myself; the point is, as we excessively engage ourselves in what we like to do, at times, we disengage ourselves in love relationships, which can cause an emotional negligence of love, which can affect the household, and whatever affects this type of a foundation, the building structure is easily destroyed, cf. Psalms 11:3; therefore, going forward, let us pay more attention to what is going on around us, get emotionally and physically involved with loved ones and others.
Beloved, if at all cost, we are to be fervent in doing anything, let it be to the glory of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, not only to attain his favors but wholeheartedly serve one another expecting nothing in return, he perceives our benevolent works, and surely rewards accordingly: therefore, there is nothing wrong with doing something out kindness to others; such as, checking the mail for the elderly next door neighbor on a snowy day, helping someone with groceries to their car, or to hold up a door for the next person walking up to a building; this little act of kindnesses goes a long ways in the righteousness of Christ: therefore, let us do good in good pleasures! Continue ye in Love! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
