Then the king instructed Ashpenaz, the master of his eunuchs, to bring some of the children of Israel and some of the king’s descendants and some of the nobles. Daniel 1:3 (NKJV).
When something good is about to happen to people, just as we expect it will happen to you this month, God begins to orchestrate how they will be singled out. When you note all those who have experienced something good, you will see that they were specially single out, apart from a situation where it was a general goodness to the entire nation.
Many of us are familiar with the story of the four Hebrew men, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, who were appointed by the King’s eunuchs to serve in the king’s palace. In Daniel chapter 1, verse 6 begins by saying ‘Now from among those of the sons of Judah were…’ Then the four names were mentioned. That means there were many more than these four who were singled out for something good.
At the moment we are not even focusing on the character and the very amazing qualities that these gentlemen had. We know they were good because they excelled all the other people that were appointed. They were obviously favoured because it was the king who instructed that they should be appointed. Now that’s where the issue is. Even though the king described the kind of people that ought to be appointed, it was not the physical qualification that made things happen for Daniel and his friends. I believe it was God who singled them out for something good. As you are reading this, I pray God Almighty, who knows you from among all the billions of people on earth will single you out for something good.
The good thing that made God single Daniel and his friends out did not stop with their appointment to be trained in the language and literature of the Chaldeans or being fed with the King’s portion of food. I think it was a situation of God continually creating problems for the king and his people and he would go and give solutions to his children. At one time the king had a dream and could not remember the dream, yet he wanted the interpretation of the dream. Thank God that Daniel knew it was God who had been trying to single him out. So he said to the king, ‘give me some time and the God in heaven who is a revealer of secrets will reveal this secret.’ Within a few days, God released unto Daniel and his colleagues the secret that will further single them out among all the chosen people. As soon as Daniel gave the king the secret, he was promoted and his friends were also promoted. I pray for you that the secret you will need to be singled out for something good, God will release it unto you.
So in this piece you will see three major lessons. The first is that God orchestrates something good and if something good will happen to you, it must have the hand of God in it. The second is that God singles you out after he has already orchestrated a good thing. Finally, God releases a secret to you and when you engage God given secrets – in your life, work or business – you will access the good things that God has instore for you.
As you continue in the journey of life, may God continually single you out for something good in Jesus name.
