Create An Atmosphere of Excellence

Create An Atmosphere of Excellence

“Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other presidents and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him. And the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.” Daniel 6:3


As we proceed daily to accomplish all that the Lord has assigned our hands to do; we must always remain cognizant of the fact God expects us to be a living example of excellence by creating this type of atmosphere wherever we are.  This character quality appears not to be as important to some as it should.  One of the causes for the failure to build an atmosphere of excellence is the fact that many are still being held captive in a mindset that has been produced by a spirit of poverty and lack.  Therefore, although they are productive in the realm of the spirit; although they love the Lord; and are living a lifestyle that is well pleasing to the Lord…they lack the ability to create an atmosphere of excellence.


The Spirit of excellence; prior to its demonstration; must have the ability to engulf our minds to the extent they we can first detect anything that is in disarray within us.  Excellence begins inwardly and flows from within.  Excellence is a mindset that commands and demands that we bring into a state of order….. everything – on every level and in every situation.   Therefore, when we have permitted this Spirit of excellence to begin a work WITHIN us …. we will then possess the ability to permit that Spirit to be released FROM us and to infiltrate atmosphere AROUND us. 

Excellence refers to the ability to operate at a level that is superior to what is considered normal.

Webster states -The state of possessing good qualities in an eminent degree; exalted merit; superiority in virtue.  So


One of the main culprits of the Spirit of Excellence is an undisciplined or unconscientious mind.  Therefore, my ability to bind and uproot any degree of “slackness” that may be within my mind… is to first be able to… “Recognize its fruit & uproot”!   So because excellence refers more to mental condition; I can be a millionaire and still not have a disciplined mindset…. And lack the ability to create an atmosphere of excellence.  My ability to create an atmosphere of excellence is not based upon my material gain or assets.   My ability to create an atmosphere of excellence is dependent upon my weightiness and maturity in the realm of the Spirit.


To create an atmosphere of excellence I must:

  • Daily refuse to permit others to clutter my mind.
  • I must maintain a sense of freedom.
  • I must be determined to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
  • Finally, to create an atmosphere of excellence I must live according to Philippians 4:8 which states….

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
