Ten Times Better

  • And the king spoke with them, and among all of them none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Therefore they stood before the king. And in every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters that were in all his kingdom. Daniel 1:19 ESV

    I was amazed that I had been able to fix it, but I did not tell them that. It was decades ago and I had just begun to work with computers, with the Lord pushing me into bigger and scarier things in that field. Computers were running DOS then and I knew nothing at all about networking. An insurance company called me and they had twelve computers networked together, but one had stopped communicating and they could not contact the original installer. I had never seen a network before.

    I wanted to tell them no, but felt that I should at least go and try. I prayed all the way there. 'Lord, I can't do this without You! Come with me.' When I walked into the office, I was scared and clueless. I found the owner standing near a filing cabinet and we discussed the problem. As I listened to him, I noticed a box with blinking lights (a hub) on top of the cabinet and began to inspect it. When I touched one of the wires on the back, a new light came on. When I let go, the light went out. That was the problem and in a few minutes, I had it fixed.

    They thought that I was a genius. Though I had never seen a computer network before, I had walked straight to the problem, repaired it and was gone in ten minutes. They were my client for the next fifteen years. You could say that it was a coincidence, but this happened every day for the first year of business. God put me into things way over my head, then used my hands to fix them. After the first year, He did less and I had to do more, yet He was always there when I needed Him.

    God wants to be a part of your life. He wants to help you and push you into greater things. Yes, it will be scary and the water is deep out there, but when Peter walked on the water, Jesus did not let him sink. This scripture is still relevant today, and if you will trust Him, God will make you ten times better.

    Prayer: Father, open the doors for me that I need in order to go to the next level. Come with me today! I cannot do this without You, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
