DAILY DEVOTIONAL: PROFITING THROUGH DILIGENCE
TOPIC: PROFITING THROUGH DILIGENCE
Memorise: Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:16 KJV
Read: 1 Timothy 4:14-16 14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. 15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.2 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
You must be determined to achieve God’s mandate for your life through diligence, hard work and perseverance. There’s not going to be any lasting shortcut to greatness except you pay your dues, burn your candles and walk the talk through faith in God and His word. There’s no room for laziness in the kingdom of God. Jesus was never lazy. There’s no way you will support you reasons for slacking and laziness. You will need to sit up and do the needful in your quest for a successful living. May you not wait to see things happening but receive grace to make things happen for good in Jesus name.
The decision for great profit in life, business and ministry is all yours. The channels to success and unbeatable excellence is already opened to you through Jesus Christ our Lord. I also believe you have been saying “Abraham’s blessings are yours”. This claim and confession is good but you must be ready to walk and work like Abraham in order to be true beneficiary of those great promises. You should look around and consider every successful men and women of God in Bible days and in our present generation. They were diligent in the pursuit of their dreams and were always at their duty posts. If you are not ready to work hard and smart, you will find profit so far from you. Be determined this morning to work while it’s day. Ask for the links to successful living and move far away from words of failure. Get back to God in prayers and pray your way into eternal breakthroughs. Believe in the Lord for your desired turnaround and work diligently to achieve greatness this year. Your testimonies will surely shock your enemies in Jesus mighty name.
Pray with me: Father, take away every dose of laziness from my system. Push me forward by your grace and let me achieve great success by your power in Jesus’ mighty name.
