In the book of Daniel Chapter 5, we read the account of a king who sees the fingers of a human hand writing on the wall. The king was worried and sadly, none of his enchanters, diviners, and astrologers could explain the meaning of the writing.Read more
In the midst of that confusion, the queen heard the voices and came into the banquet hall. Then she spoke, asking him not to be alarmed. She spoke further…
“There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods in him. In the time of your father he was found to have insight and intelligence and wisdom like that of the gods.
Your father, King Nebuchadnezzar, appointed him chief of the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners.
He did this because Daniel, whom the king called Belteshazzar, was found to have a keen mind and knowledge and understanding, and also the ability to interpret dreams, explain riddles and solve difficult problems.
Call for Daniel, and he will tell you what the writing means.” Daniel 5:11-12
There is so much to learn from her response but we will focus on the opening and concluding sentences.
The queen assured the king that there was a man who would bring solution to the problem.
She knew that Daniel had the skills needed to solve the problem. She also knew that he had performed similar exploits in the past, and as such, when there was a need for his expertise, she spoke up and vouched for him behind close doors.
In 2 Kings 5, we read about Namaan who was a commander of the army of king of Aram. He had leprosy, but there was a servant girl in his house, an Israelite, who was sure she knew where he could get the solution to the problem.
She told her mistress about Elisha. She said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.” 2 Kings 5:3
As far as she was concerned, there was a man who would bring solution to the problem. And when the issue was brought to the prophet, there was solution. Namaan was healed.
However, there have been times when a man was sought and there was none. In Ezekiel 22:30, the Lord said “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.”
There are issues requiring solutions in our communities, churches, corporate societies/organizations, and the nation at large. Are you a problem solver? Can people who have come across you vouch for your ability to bring resolution to outstanding problems?
For some people, the answer to these questions is Yes, yet, they remain undervalued, underutilized, and underrated.
So today, we agree in prayers that the Lord will announce you. Your gift will make way for you and bring you before kings. In the rooms where decisions are being made, the Lord will cause your name to be mentioned. You will be divinely favoured in Jesus name.
When the time comes from you to proffer solutions, you will not disappoint God and those people who He used to project you. The Lord will help you. You will excel.
It will be said of you that there is a person who can supply items without cutting corners or compromising on quality. It will be said of you that there is a person who will speak the truth without compromise. It will be said of you that there is a person who excels at every assigned tasks.
When Heaven seeks problem solvers, your name will be mentioned. You will be a solution to global problems, not a part of the problem. Your time has come. Rejoice!
Amen, thank you sir
