God rewards diligence.

September 30, 2019

“The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.” Proverbs 13:4

Let’s say Suzanne started a new job working as an administrative assistant to a top executive. Although she has experience in the administrative field, the industry of this new job is something she’s having to work extra hard to learn. She comes home after a long day at the office feeling discouraged. Maybe she chose the wrong job. Because it hasn’t been easy, maybe she needs to quit and do something else, she thinks to herself. But what if she focused not on how hard the job is, but on the goal? What if she were to learn from her mistakes and seek to get better and better everyday? What if she changed her attitude and perspective? It probably wouldn’t be long before promotion came her way.

God rewards diligence.

What you desire to accomplish in life is going to require some hard work. It’s going to require you learning from your mistakes and having a right attitude. There are many people like Suzanne who are having trouble seeing and seizing God’s promotions in front of them, because they didn’t expect it to be so difficult to obtain. Just because you’re being challenged doesn’t mean you’re not where you’re supposed to be. And just because everything seems easy doesn’t mean you are where you’re supposed to be. Grace is not the absence of great effort. Grace works alongside our great effort and it creates something amazing!

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your wisdom. Help me to focus on the goal instead of the challenges. Strengthen me Lord. Help me learn from my mistakes and get better and better each day. I choose not to operate with a lazy mind or a slack hand. Help me to be a diligent soul that is diligent in every area of my life. From my relationships and family, to my workplace, to my spiritual walk with you, to my finances and everything else, help me do what I need to do. Help me receive your grace and apply your wisdom in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I was just looking for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site.
    I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web
    sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full
    of garbage.

    Great – I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your web site.
    I had no trouble navigating through all tabs as well
    as related information ended up being truly simple to do to
    access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least.
    Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for
    those who add forums or something, web site theme .

    a tones way for your customer to communicate.

    Excellent task.

    I create a leave a response whenever I appreciate a
    article on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I
    browsed. And on this article God rewards diligence.
    – Daughters of the King Daily Devotional
    l Kesha Trippett. I was excited enough to post a thought 🙂
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s
    okay. Is it simply me or do a few of these remarks look like coming from brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I’d like to
    keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you list every one of your shared pages
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    We wish to thank you again for the gorgeous ideas you gave Jesse when preparing her post-graduate research plus, most importantly, regarding providing each of the ideas within a blog post.
    Provided we had been aware of your site a year ago, we may have been saved the needless measures we were employing.

    Thank you very much.
