Daniel 11:32 of the English Amplified Bible describes those who work in partnership with God, empowered by Him, this way:  “…The people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God].”
 
What type “exploits” can people who know God do? People whose names appear in the Bible offer a few ideas.
 
Hebrews 11:32-34
    32 And what shall I say further? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets,
    33 Who by [the help of] faith subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions,
    34 Extinguished the power of raging fire, escaped the devourings of the sword, out of frailty and weakness won strength and became stalwart, even mighty and resistless in battle, routing alien hosts.

 


No human can accomplish anything excellent without drawing all abilities from God the I AM.
 
Throughout the Bible, the meaning of the words “majesty,” “splendor,” “glory,” “power,” and “strength” are intertwined. Through the generations Bible translators have used all these words in their attempts to summarize God’s absolute, infinite, everlasting abilities.
 
All empowering and enabling is done through relationship with the One Who created all things by His power.
 
1 Corinthians 8:6
    6 Yet for us there is [only] one God, the Father, Who is the Source of all things and for Whom we [have life], and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through and by Whom are all things and through and by Whom we [ourselves exist].

Revelation 4:11
    11 Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and dominion, for You created all things; by Your will they were [brought into being] and were created.

Colossians 1:16-17
    16 For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.
    17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).

John 1:3
    3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.

Romans 11:36
    36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.] To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).



Even more stunning than the vastness of His abilities, is that Pure Power Himself, also known as I AM, is willing to share His abilities with you.
 
He doesn’t share His abilities with you from His position as King, or Pure Power, or I AM.
 
He shares His abilities with you from His Self-chosen position as your loving Father.



Spend a moment deciding who you feel is the most powerful person on earth. [Certainly it is a man and not a woman.]
 
If this man shares his power with you, if he uses his power for your benefit, what will he demand from you in exchange?
 
Certainly, you will need to pay something. Every favor requires payment. Right?
 
If you want a share of this man’s power, what are you willing to do to earn a portion of it?
 
What sacrifice, or what compromise, will you need to make?



God invited you into relationship with Him. If you accept His invitation, He will freely gift you with His abilities.
 
You can accept His invitation by going to the bottom of this page and clicking on the link named Prayer To Invite God Into Your Heart.



All enabling by God the I AM is done through His Spirit. Go to the section called He Sent His Spirit to learn more about His Spirit’s desire to enable you, to empower you, and all in the context of relationship.
 
As God’s Spirit gives you everything you need in the context of relational partnership with Him, He will lead you in His triumph:

2 Corinthians 2:14-17
    14 But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere,
    15 For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernible alike] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing:
    16 To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is qualified (fit and sufficient) for these things? [Who is able for such a ministry? We?]
    17 For we are not, like so many, [like hucksters making a trade of] peddling God’s Word [shortchanging and adulterating the divine message]; but like [men] of sincerity and the purest motive, as [commissioned and sent] by God, we speak [His message] in Christ (the Messiah), in the [very] sight and presence of God.


Better said, because He loves you and has chosen you, God desires to enable you, to empower you, with His abilities so that you can do what He has called you to do and be who He has called you to be:

Romans 8:28-30
    28 We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
    29 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
    30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].




Did you notice which people stand firm and do exploits? The phrase from the Book of Daniel in the Bible starts with “The people who know their God.”
 
Those people who know God’s nature and character possess confidence. Empowered by their knowledge of Him,  they move forward with the desire to do great things in God’s Name and for His glory.
 
Their trust in God and their desire to glorify Him pleases God. He, in response, empowers them to succeed.
 
In 2 Corinthians 3:18, Paul writes that the Spirit of God advances us from glory to glory.
 
2 Corinthians 3:18
    18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

 
As we continue in relationship with Him, we grow in our realization of Who He is and what He is like. As we grow in this knowledge, we grow in trust. We are willing to try things that require more and more courage.
 
In the stories which follow, you will see for yourself that the ones who had close relationships with God did not fear what man could do to them. They knew that God was on their side. As the writer of Romans exclaimed:
 
Romans 8:31
    31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]

 
This verse from the Bible is proven in the stories here.



The Book of Daniel offers interesting stories about four young men, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, all of whom were brought to Babylon as slaves.
 
From the beginning of their time in Babylon, God gave them such favor that they were promoted to influential positions in King Darius’ and King Nebuchadnezzar’s government.
 
Many of the native Babylonians in the kings’ courts became jealous.
 
In the first story, we’ll learn of their evil plot against Daniel.
 
Following, we’ll learn of their wicked plot against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.



Daniel was a man with deep daily relationship with God. He knew God’s nature and character and, as a result, he trusted God.
 
All who knew Daniel — including those who were jealous of his position in the government — knew that Daniel was in the habit of spending time with God in prayer, three times every day.
 
They tried to use his personal habit of prayer against him . They weren’t aware that those who know God are empowered by Him.
 
As you read Daniel’s story, be sure to note verse 10: “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house, and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he got down upon his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.”
 
Daniel 6:1-28
    1 It pleased [King] Darius [successor to Belshazzar] to set over the kingdom 120 satraps who should be [in charge] throughout all the kingdom,
    2 And over them three presidents—of whom Daniel was one—that these satraps might give account to them and that the king should have no loss or damage.
    3 Then this Daniel was distinguished above the presidents and the satraps because an excellent spirit was in him, and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
    4 Then the presidents and satraps sought to find occasion [to bring accusation] against Daniel concerning the kingdom, but they could find no occasion or fault, for he was faithful, nor was there any error or fault found in him.
    5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion [to bring accusation] against this Daniel except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
    6 Then these presidents and satraps came [tumultuously] together to the king and said to him, King Darius, live forever!
    7 All the presidents of the kingdom, the deputies and the satraps, the counselors and the governors, have consulted and agreed that the king should establish a royal statute and make a firm decree that whoever shall ask a petition of any god or man for thirty days, except of you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions.
    8 Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing that it may not be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be altered.
    9 So King Darius signed the writing and the decree.
    10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house, and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he got down upon his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.
    11 Then these men came thronging [by agreement] and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
    12 Then they came near and said before the king concerning his prohibitory decree, Have you not signed an edict that any man who shall make a petition to any god or man within thirty days, except of you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be changed or repealed.
    13 Then they said before the king, That Daniel, who is one of the exiles from Judah, does not regard or pay any attention to you, O king, or to the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.
    14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was much distressed [over what he had done] and set his mind on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored until the sun went down to rescue him.
    15 Then these same men came thronging [by agreement] to the king and said, Know, O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians that no decree or statute which the king establishes may be changed or repealed.
    16 Then the king commanded, and Daniel was brought and cast into the den of lions. The king said to Daniel, May your God, Whom you are serving continually, deliver you!
    17 And a stone was brought and laid upon the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet and with the signet of his lords, that there might be no change of purpose concerning Daniel.
    18 Then the king went to his palace and passed the night fasting, neither were instruments of music or dancing girls brought before him; and his sleep fled from him.
    19 Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions.
    20 And when he came to the den and to Daniel, he cried out in a voice of anguish. The king said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is your God, Whom you serve continually, able to deliver you from the lions?
    21 Then Daniel said to the king, O king, live forever!
    22 My God has sent His angel and has shut the lions’ mouths so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent and blameless before Him; and also before you, O king, [as you very well know] I have done no harm or wrong.
    23 Then the king was exceedingly glad and commanded that Daniel should be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no hurt of any kind was found on him because he believed in (relied on, adhered to, and trusted in) his God.
    24 And the king commanded, and those men who had accused Daniel were brought and cast into the den of lions, they, their children, and their wives; and before they ever reached the bottom of the den, the lions had overpowered them and had broken their bones in pieces.
    25 Then King Darius wrote to all peoples, nations, and languages [in his realm] that dwelt in all the earth: May peace be multiplied to you!
    26 I make a decree that in all my royal dominion men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel, for He is the living God, enduring and steadfast forever, and His kingdom shall not be destroyed and His dominion shall be even to the end [of the world].
    27 He is a Savior and Deliverer, and He works signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth—He Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
    28 So this [man] Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
 



Because Daniel’s friends Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego had close relationship with God, they knew that He commanded in His Word not to worship any god.
 
Knowing this, men who were jealous of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s high positions in government pointed out to King Nebuchadnezzar that these men were not willing to bow down to the image of gold.
 
Perhaps Daniel was thinking about his three friends when he wrote Daniel 11:32:  “…The people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God].” Let’s read their story.

Daniel 3:1-7
    1 Nebuchadnezzar the king [caused to be] made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits or ninety feet and its breadth six cubits or nine feet. He set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon.
    2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the satraps, the deputies, the governors, the judges and chief stargazers, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs and lawyers, and all the chief officials of the provinces to come to the dedication of the image which King Nebuchadnezzar had [caused to be] set up.
    3 Then the satraps, the deputies, the governors, the judges and chief stargazers, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs and lawyers, and all the chief officials of the provinces were gathered together for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up, and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
    4 Then the herald cried aloud, You are commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages,
    5 That when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, dulcimer or bagpipe, and every kind of music, you are to fall down and worship the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up.
    6 And whoever does not fall down and worship shall that very hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
    7 Therefore, when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, dulcimer or bagpipe, and every kind of music, all the peoples, nations, and languages fell down and worshiped the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

 
Daniel 3:13-27
    13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; and these men were brought before the king.
    14 [Then] Nebuchadnezzar said to them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the golden image which I have set up?
    15 Now if you are ready when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, dulcimer or bagpipe, and every kind of music to fall down and worship the image which I have made, very good. But if you do not worship, you shall be cast at once into the midst of a burning fiery furnace, and who is that god who can deliver you out of my hands?
    16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, it is not necessary for us to answer you on this point.
    17 If our God Whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.
    18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up!
    19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury and his facial expression was changed [to antagonism] against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Therefore he commanded that the furnace should be heated seven times hotter than it was usually heated.
    20 And he commanded the strongest men in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
    21 Then these [three] men were bound in their cloaks, their tunics or undergarments, their turbans, and their other clothing, and they were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
    22 Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent and the furnace exceedingly hot, the flame and sparks from the fire killed those men who handled Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
    23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the burning fiery furnace.
    24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king [saw and] was astounded, and he jumped up and said to his counselors, Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered, True, O king.
    25 He answered, Behold, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the form of the fourth is like a son of the gods!
    26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, you servants of the Most High God, come out and come here. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out from the midst of the fire.
    27 And the satraps, the deputies, the governors, and the king’s counselors gathered around together and saw these men—that the fire had no power upon their bodies, nor was the hair of their head singed; neither were their garments scorched or changed in color or condition, nor had even the smell of smoke clung to them.

 
Notice that, after this ordeal, these three men didn’t even smell like smoke!
 
Further, God rewarded their obedience to Him with promotions!
 
Daniel 3:28-30
    28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Who has sent His angel and delivered His servants who believed in, trusted in, and relied on Him! And they set aside the king’s command and yielded their bodies rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.
    29 Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, and language that speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego shall be cut in pieces and their houses be made a dunghill, for there is no other God who can deliver in this way!
    30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the province of Babylon.




Throughout the Bible, personal relationships that people of the Bible enjoyed with God gave them confidence in hardships.
 
The next story is especially remarkable because it proves a nations’ united trust in God to protect them. A multitude had come against King Jehoshaphat and his people.
 
2 Chronicles 20:1-6
    1After this, the Moabites, the Ammonites, and with them the Meunites came against Jehoshaphat to battle.
    2 It was told Jehoshaphat, A great multitude has come against you from beyond the [Dead] Sea, from Edom; and behold they are in Hazazon-tamar, which is En-gedi.
    3 Then Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself [determinedly, as his vital need] to seek the Lord; he proclaimed a fast in all Judah.
    4 And Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord; even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord [yearning for Him with all their desire].
    5 And Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem in the house of the Lord before the new court
    6 And said, O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven? And do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? In Your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand You.

 
Jehoshaphat reminds himself and his people of the power of God. Together, they focus on the power of God and refuse to focus on the power of their enemies.
 
Through His prophet, God gives them His plan and assures them that He is with them.
 
2 Chronicles 20:13-18
    13 And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their children and their wives.
    14 Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly.
    15 He said, Hearken, all Judah, you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat. The Lord says this to you: Be not afraid or dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
    16 Tomorrow go down to them. Behold, they will come up by the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the ravine before the Wilderness of Jeruel.
    17 You shall not need to fight in this battle; take your positions, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord [Who is] with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not nor be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.
    18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping Him.

 
Because they had relationship with God, knew His voice, and trusted Him, they responded in quite a remarkable way. On encouragement from their king, the worshipers went before the army, armed only with worship!
 
What was their focus in worship? They focused on what they knew from experience was true about the nature and character of God.
 
2 Chronicles 20:20-21
    20 And they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established; believe and remain steadfast to His prophets and you shall prosper.
    21 When he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers to sing to the Lord and praise Him in their holy [priestly] garments as they went out before the army, saying, Give thanks to the Lord, for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!

 
Once again: “…The people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God].” In response, God provided miracles for them. Note the words in verse 23, that God used the wicked to destroy one another.
 
2 Chronicles 20:22-26
    22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah, and they were [self-] slaughtered;
    23 For [suspecting betrayal] the men of Ammon and Moab rose against those of Mount Seir, utterly destroying them. And when they had made an end of the men of Seir, they all helped to destroy one another.
    24 And when Judah came to the watchtower of the wilderness, they looked at the multitude, and behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none had escaped!
    25 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take the spoil, they found among them much cattle, goods, garments, and precious things which they took for themselves, more than they could carry away, so much they were three days in gathering the spoil.
    26 On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Beracah. There they blessed the Lord. So the name of the place is still called the Valley of Beracah [blessing].




2 Chronicles 20:15 says, “The battle is not yours, but God’s.”
 
Spend time thinking about what trials in your life are yours to fight, and, if you have invited God into your heart, which are His to fight.
 
If you have relationship with God as your Father, He will tell you which battles are His to fight.
 
If you do not have relationship with God as your Father and would like Him to empower you with His wisdom, counsel, nurture, guidance, favor, and all gifts and all His true riches, go to the bottom of this page and click on the link named Prayer To Invite God Into Your Heart.
