“Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.” ~ Daniel 10:12
Chasten – to inflict suffering upon for purposes of moral improvement; chastise; to restrain; subdue.
Chastise – to discipline.
Remember that the moment that you go before the Lord to pray, God responds. You spend time humbling yourself as you continue in prayer to breakthrough the objections of the enemy.
So therefore set your mind.
Set your mind to seek the Lord.
Set your mind to consecrate yourself.
Set your mind to live godly.
Set your mind to rid yourself of what’s holding you back.
Set your mind to honor God in all you do.
It’s your decision.
Set your mind.
Daniel did just that. He did as Scripture directs and saw the results of 2 Chronicles 7:14-16. He Humbled himself and prayed.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. ~ 2 Chronicles 7:14-16
