The Purpose Of God’s Heart
Have you ever wondered what is God’ s purpose?
Romans 8:28 states that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord and to those who are called according to His purpose.
It, therefore, means that not everyone will see or experience the good from every bad situation.
Only when your intentions or objectives are aligned with the purpose of God will everything, including failures and disappointments, work out for the better.
Although Daniel was a young captive in the enemy’s camp, he had a strong purpose or goal in his heart the he would not defile himself with the king’s meat.
That was exactly one of the purpose that God has for His people.
For I am the Lord your God. You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy. Neither shall you defile yourselves with any creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
For I am the Lord who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. (Leviticus 11:44-45)
Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.(Numbers 18:30)
The purpose of God for our lives is to be holy because He is Holy.
Therefore, we must not be conformed to this world but we must be transformed by the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2; Ephesians 4:20-24).
It is obedience to the Word of God that will keep us cleansed and undefiled (Hebrews 4:12).
Thus, like Daniel, when we encounter the den of lions, the trials and persecutions we will come out of them victoriously.
