Topic: Where To Express Diligence
Be diligent in the assignment of your life or the work of your hands – give it what it takes, deploy your energy for maximum impact in what you do (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
SCRIPTURE: Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. Ecclesiastes 9:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is no victory for the lazy.
Yesterday, we looked at diligence as one of the major keys to destiny fulfilment. We saw, among other things, that where people are lazy, life can never be easy, and hard work is the cure for hard life.
Today, we are going to look at the areas of life where diligence can be expressed for the fulfilment of destiny:
1. Faith and Relationship with God: Be diligent in the development of your faith and in your relationship with God. It is necessary to note that your faith and relationship with God require diligence (Joshua 1:8).
Beloved, there is no victory for the lazy. Many people spend hours watching television, they spend hours on garbage on the internet but no time for the Word of God. Joshua 1:8 says that we should meditate on the Word day and night. So, it is crucial to develop your faith because your faith determines your life, strength and victory in life. Develop quality relationship with God; take the time to worship, study His Word, pray, fast, fortify yourself.
2. Self-development: Be diligent in the development of yourself. That is, increasing in the knowledge of what you do, your gift, talents and potentials. David developed himself until he was number one in Israel in playing the instrument (1 Samuel 16:18).
Beloved, come to a level in your profession where you can be considered first amongst every other person.
3. Life Assignment: Be diligent in what you do. Be diligent in the assignment of your life or the work of your hands – give it what it takes, deploy your energy for maximum impact in what you do (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
As you make up your mind to be diligent, I see you at the top in life.
REMEMBER THIS: There is no victory for the lazy.
- Spend time with God at the place of prayer and worship to build a strong and intimate relationship with Him.
- Take up a course that would facilitate your mental and career development where necessary.
- Maximally deploy your energy into your assignment.
