“The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.” Proverbs 13:4
There are many people who are having trouble seeing and seizing God’s promotions in front of them. One reason is because they didn’t expect it to be such a challenge to obtain. Just because you’re facing difficulties 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 worthwhile!
Prayer: Father God, 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.
