God is still in the blessing business. He longs to show you His goodness and provision. He promises to do His part, but you have to do your part too. You have to be diligent. First of all, be diligent in seeking His ways and following His commands. Then, be diligent with what you have in your hand, with your time and resources.
In the New Testament, Jesus tells a parable about three men whose employer gives them money (talents). Two of the men were diligent and invested the talents and received a great return. The third man was afraid and buried what he was given. The first two men were rewarded and praised for their diligence, while the third man was rebuked.
Today, be diligent with what you have in your hand. Whatever you do, do it with excellence. Be the best you can be and go the extra mile, even when you think it goes unnoticed. Understand that when people don’t notice, God notices, and promises to reward the appetite of the diligent.
“”¦the appetite of the diligent is abundantly supplied.”(Proverbs 13:4, AMPC)?
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your favour and blessing on my life. Father, I choose to be more diligent. I choose excellence, and will strive to do everything to the best of my ability. God, I will give You all the glory, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
