Pray that we will be God’s dispensational instrument, those through whom He can make an age-turning move, by being absolutely consecrated to God and separated unto God from an age that follows Satan, by joining ourselves to God’s desire through His Word, by being a man of prayer with an excellent spirit, a man living under God’s rule in the reality of the kingdom of the heavens, and by being a self-sacrificing person with the spirit of martyrdom (Dan. 1:8; 6:3, 10; 9:23; Num. 6:2-3, 5; Psa. 110:3; Rev. 12:11).
Dan. 1:8—But Daniel set his heart not to defile himself with the king’s choice provision and with the wine that the king drank, so he requested of the leader of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
Dan. 6:3—Then this Daniel distinguished himself among the chief ministers and satraps because in him there was an excellent spirit, and the king considered setting him over the whole kingdom.
Dan. 6:10—Now when Daniel came to know that the writing had been signed, he went to his house (in his upper room he had windows open toward Jerusalem) and three times daily he knelt on his knees and prayed and gave thanks before his God, because he had always done so previously.
Num. 6:2-3—Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When a man or a woman makes a special vow, the vow of a Nazarite, to separate himself to Jehovah, he shall separate himself from wine and strong drink; he shall drink no vinegar of wine or vinegar of strong drink, nor shall he drink any juice of grapes, nor eat fresh or dried grapes.
Num. 6:5—All the days of his vow of separation no razor shall pass over his head. He shall be holy until the days are fulfilled for which he separated himself to Jehovah; he shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow long.
Psa. 110:3—Your people will offer themselves willingly / In the day of Your warfare, / In the splendor of their consecration. / Your young men will be to You / Like the dew from the womb of the dawn.
Rev. 12:11—And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they loved not their soul-life even unto death.
