Separate from His Creation

He stirs up the sea with His power, and by His understanding He breaks up the storm. . . . Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways.

>Job 26:12, 14, nkjv

God Himself is not in a sunset or in an act of human compassion any more than an artist is in his painting or a musician is in his music. You and I may see reflections of the artist’s or musician’s personality in his work, but the person himself is separate from it. Likewise, you may see the reflection of God’s personality in a sunset or in an act of compassion, but He Himself is not in either one. He is separate from His Creation. What an important truth! This means:

When something is wrong, He can right it.
When something is broken, He can mend it.
When something is lost, He can find it.
When something doesn’t work, He can fix it.
When something is hurt, He can heal it.

My failures, sins, mistakes, and shortcomings—and yours—in no way dilute or deplete or weaken or harm God!

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
