Daniel Had The Winning Attitude The prophet Daniel, one of the bible heroes, was a contemporary of the aforementioned three courageous Hebrews.
He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Or, was Charlie following the example of the apostle Paul, who became all things to all men so that by all means he might save some 1 Cor. Again, some of these dear spiritual family members and heroes of the faith were tested with circumstances that very few will ever know. A big motivating factor that should inspire us to live good Christian lives…to run the Christian race… is the grace of God. They were stoned; they were sawed in two; they were put to death by the sword. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.
So run that you may obtain it. But we know that in the end, God wins and so do His people. We must continue to trust God as we continue to run with perseverance the race marked out for us Heb. He has told us that you always have pleasant memories of us and that you long to see us, just as we also long to see you. The early Christians knew otherwise and risked their lives on various occasions to obey or continue to obey. We were alone; there was no one in the house but the two of us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. As Christians we should always try to make it possible for the other person to win too, but sometimes people will choose otherwise. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. This is not the work of just a few select people.

Because I live, you also will live. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. . Dear follower of Jesus, perseverance to the end is vital to get into the Kingdom of God. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own.
Maybe God is going to use you where you are or soon will be to help many others. See also the intro paragraph above. He was known as the friend of sinners, but He never compromised His holiness. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Even if they call to the Most High, he will by no means exalt them. But as for you, O man of God, flee these things.
He certainly had the winning attitude. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel,. Finally, don't be misled by those in our day that want you to think that if you have enough faith you'll never be materially poor or physically afflicted in any way, as the teachers say. Also remember when the roads of life get rough and you are tempted to give up or even compromise: Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

In his misery, he wanted to die and even cursed the day of his birth, yet he was still trusting God. Where, O death, are your plagues? Job 13:15 Perplexed Job didn't know if God was going to kill him or not, but he knew he was going to continue to hope or trust in God.
