DILIGENCE



My sweet sisters,

I can't believe it's been 5months of us meeting here week in, week out. I'm so thankful to God for this opportunity and the entire Women of the God Kind. I celebrate and love you.💕 Its such a good feeling to know you have a family with the same kindred spirit in those you haven't even met physically.

OK! Enough of the *mushiness* 😁

In Bishop Oyedepo's words, a faith that makes God totally responsible is an irresponsible faith. Irresponsible faith is when we say everything is up to God.
My bible makes me understand that "Do you see any truly competent workers? They will serve kings rather than working for ordinary people.- Proverbs 22:29 (NLT)
This means there's a place of preparation in every believer's assignment. Preparation is incomplete without diligence.  Being a believer makes incompetency inexcusable. A believer who sits around waiting for something to happen would wait forever because life only gives us what we demand not what we deserve.

And to demand you must put in efforts and stop being lackadaisical. See Jesus now, he wakes up early to pray, study hard so he can ask questions and give answers when required. He mastered 'his craft'. He 'knew his onions'.
If we must get results and do exploits we must do away with slothful living.
‘I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got. No sloppy living for me! I’m staying alert and in top condition’ (1Corinthians 9:26, MSG).
 This is a wake up call for all.
Let your emblem be giving your best at whatsoever you find to do. Can your boss or lecturer say you give your best?

David had to be diligent as a shepherd boy before he was anointed king. Likewise, Joseph was first diligent as a slave before he became Prime minister. God requires our diligence at all levels; in academics, career, business, ministry, marriage and ...... (You know where).
If we must be a city set on the hill, we can't be caught 'slacking'. We need to do the needful: take trainings, attend the value-adding meetings/conferences, read books. Paul while in prison sent for his parchment. If Paul, with all he went through stayed diligent, then we have no excuse.
The world awaits our earnest manifestation and we cannot do that if were are not diligent. By being diligent i mean being the best at whatever we do and doing it as unto the Lord.

Sis, let go and shine 📣

Loads of love,

Your Sis
