FEEL GOOD 🌴 THINK POSITIVE
AT THAT TIME when Jerusalem was attacked by King Nebuchadnezzar with his armies the Lord gave him victory. When he returned to his palace he took along some sacred treasures and captives.
Then he ordered his man in charged of the palace personnel, to select youth from captives – young men of the royal family and from noble family – and to teach them their language and literature.
💡 “Pick strong, healthy, good-looking lads; those who have read widely in many fields, are well informed, alert and sensible, and have enough poise to look good around the palace.”
The King assigned them the best of food and wine from his own kitchen during their three-year training period, planning to make them his counselors when they graduated.
Among the chosen youth, there were four named Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah who made up their mind not to eat the royal food and wine given to them by the King.
DANIEL SUGGESTED to the steward for a 10-day diet test of only Vegetables and Water; then, at the end of this trial period the steward could see how they looked in comparison with the other fellows who ate the King’s rich food and decide whether or not to let them continue their diet.
The steward finally agreed to the test. Well, at the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the youths who had been eating the food supplied by the King! So after that the steward fed them only vegetables and water, without the rich food and wines!
💡God gave these four youths great ability to learn, and they soon mastered all the literature and science of the time.
😍 When the three-year training period was completed, the King was impressed of them and they were put on his regular staff of advisors.
