Godliness is profitable and it pays to know and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. As a godly youth, Daniel resisted temptation, restrained his appetite and abstained from every appearance of evil. He purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself. The decision he made as a young man saw him through life as a godly prosperous man. Beware of the decisions you make today because of the far-reaching consequences they will have on your life.
Every good thing comes from the Lord. He knows what is good for His children and He gives to those that seek Him diligently. The sheep looks up to its shepherd for sustenance and protection. It is the shepherd that searches out and leads the flock to green pastures for grazing. You are defenceless if you do not have the Lord Jesus Christ as the Shepherd and Bishop of your soul, for without Him you can do nothing.
The heart of the believer is tender and needs to be constantly watched over to avoid corruption and defilement. When God justifies a man and makes him righteous at salvation, He also gives him the charge to keep himself pure. Failing in the responsibility to take away the things that have the capacity to defile a man will eventually result in eternal damnation. The believer is therefore expected to eschew evil and to abstain from all appearance of it, always.
There is no better way to start anything than to start with God. When you start your day with God, he will guide and keep you from falling into the unseen traps of the enemy. I encourage you to begin every day with the one who knows tomorrow and your steps will be ordered in the way you should walk to fulfil God's purpose for your life. Forgetting the failures of the past, take advantage of the new day to begin afresh with God. Every day started with God is bound to end well for you.
Whatever God does not do remains undone. If God does not help you, nobody can help you. Your help can only come from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He alone can save the sinner, deliver the oppressed, restore the backslider, heal the sick, help the helpless, provide for the needy, and turn their situations around for the best.
