Proverbs 13:4 ESV: “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.”
There is no such thing as an easy business, easy career, and easy life. Most people want to be successful but they don’t realize that it takes diligence and work in order to enter into a successful life. I had to embrace delayed gratification, patience, and diligence in order to walk into the fullness of the life God had for me. It took and it continues to take sacrifice and dedication. This is why we must die to our flesh. Our flesh doesn’t want to have patience. It wants to squander itself on fleeting passions and emotions. However, success comes in staying the course!
- How will you stay the course this week?
Confession/Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I walk in Your wisdom and understanding. I will stay the course and focus on God’s best for my life. I will have confidence that through diligence and consistency, I will walk in abundance for the rest of my days. Amen.
