Daniel, in the Bible, had an excellent spirit about him. I believe Daniel and his friends were Yeshuah/Jesus-like before Messiah walked the Earth in flesh. Daniel and his friends were living and confirming the promises they were given as part of the chosen people blessed by the Almighty.
The excellent spirit comes from Faith, and Faith can ONLY come by practicing and receiving the Word, by diligently seeking to know all Yahweh God wants you to know.
The excellent spirit has Health, Provision, Prosperity, and Protection. Daniel had all of this.
The excellent spirit has a heart set apart, values the secret things of the Father, is humble, has practiced discernment with constant improvement, and is in continued prayer and meditation.
Continued prayer and meditation (talking and listening) is communication throughout the day. Skilled, continued prayer (as Daniel and his friends) is appointed in the day, developed, and custom. Daniel and his friends had the custom of prayer and meditation. This is how faith is built. We have to set times and keep them, just as we set appointments with people. I know this works and can be done, even in a busy day. You just block out that time just as anything else in the day. With daily consistency ( say 9 am, 11 am, and 3 pm, for 10-15 minutes each time, or more), it becomes easier and others begin to know when you can be called upon and when not, including your children. I remember doing this with my kids when they were young, and with consistency, they began to know I am not going to succumb to their calling during that time and they began to copy it.
I hope I have stirred some ideas in your mind to begin a new “custom” and to yearn for that excellent spirit that we all can acquire, along with the health, Provision, Prosperity, and Protection that comes with it.
One idea to get you started is a Prayer journal, where you stop, and write a prayer on your heart, no matter what it is, or read a scripture and write a prayer to use that scripture and see it in your own life. This is a great way to get the daily custom going strong. Here are some scriptures to ponder, and get you started: Hebrews 13:16, 12: 1-3, Set your mind on things above. OR, just begin reading Daniel and things will really get you moving in prayer.
I have been seeing and feeling some great things this week, in all the mess. Yes, you can feel good things in the mess of life if you are looking.
I began my prayer journal again, and I began praying promises when I wake, through the day and before I go to sleep. I have exercised again every day, sometimes more than once a day. I am, because of the season, in the garden much now and outside a whole lot. I have had better sleep. I have had libido issues and other hormonal issues disappear. I have noticed my speech be better, my mind be clearer, and my energy be enhanced.
I had a saliva test recently for hormones and cortisol and other things. I was near bottomed out in cortisol when it should be up and low overall. Hormones were not all in balance but not too bad. I decided to give it all to the one who knows me and what my body is going through at this time (age 46, and I like to call it level 46). I am amazed. Below are the scriptures of two of my promise prayers. You take the scriptures, with the promises, and figure out what they are saying, then put them into your own situation or moment, and then read them back to God with it all together. It is powerful. I also add “tapping” and mental exercise to the sequence and it becomes even more powerful. (look those things up for yourself to find out more about getting to the core of your body and soul/spirit).
Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear (and this means do not let fear consume, fear is real and needs to be acknowledged as such), For I am with you. Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous Hand! Personal note: there is so much here in this; I would consume myself in front of the mirror looking at bumps or other flaws and letting fear consume me…no more! I would consume myself when I was outside looking for ticks….NO MORE! This is how this scripture works. No more junk anxiety. I am fine. Enjoy what is around you and consume in that. If something changes, I will know and God will take care of me to have what I need to take care of it, but NOT until then will I be anxious of that around me or on me or in me.
III John 2 I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.
Take all this in!
Have a good day.
I am sharing an article I ran across. I have added some of my own personal stuff to it. I know it all too well.
Stress and anxiety is universal, and it’s not always bad. Whenever you jump to catch a badly thrown ball, feel especially energetic before an important meeting, or hit the brakes in time to avoid a car accident, stress is doing its job. The adrenaline boosting your heart rate and the cortisol boosting your blood sugar, while diverting energy away from your digestive system and immune responses, are exactly what humans need to fight or flee attackers.
However, when there’s never any relief from stress, the sustained fight-or-flight response can cause problems. In fact, WebMD warns that constant stress actually becomes “distress — a negative stress reaction. Distress can lead to physical symptoms including headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases.”
Following are some changes that can be brought about by stress:
- Angry outbursts
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Over- or under-eating
- Social withdrawal
- Tobacco use
- Irritability or anger
- Lack of motivation or focus
- Sadness or depression
- Chest pain
- Muscle tension or pain
- Sex drive
- Stomach upset
Massage Therapy and Stress
Virtually every symptom listed by the American Psychological Association can benefit from massage. Research has shown that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase the production of endorphins, your body’s natural “feel good” chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress much easier to overcome. I personally know this to be true in every aspect with client results and with my own experiences.
In fact, stress relief is one of the first benefits that come to mind when thinking of massage therapy. It’s also a key component for anyone trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Clinical studies show that even a single 1 -hour session can significantly lower your heart rate, cortisol levels, and insulin levels – all of which explain why massage therapy and stress relief go hand-in-hand.
Benefits of Massage Therapy for Stress
Taking care of your body should be at the top of your priorities. By adding therapeutic massage to your routine now, you’ll feel, look and simply be healthier far into the future. In fact, stress relief alone can improve your vitality and state of mind. So what better way to prep for a long, happy life than a relaxing, therapeutic massage?
If you’re looking to add stress-relieving massage to your wellness program, a therapeutic massage from Natural Helping Hands can be a powerful ally when combating daily pressures and anxiety. In addition to stress relief, ongoing massage therapy can reduce pain, increase energy levels and improve overall physical and mental performance. I am an experienced, professional, medical massage therapist who customizes every massage (and stress relief) session to address your individual needs.
