“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” (Hebrews 6:10)
God has seen your faithfulness. He has seen all you have done and are doing. He will not forget your work. Your answer is coming. Daniel had to wait to see an answer that was dispatched the moment he prayed. We don’t understand how it all works or the mechanism of prayer, but we do know He is faithful.
He will watch over His Word to see that it is fulfilled. When we stand in agreement with His Word, we literally pull the promises from the spiritual into the physical. It is in our faith that the answers to prayer are born. This is what it means to have ‘Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven”.
It is because of Who He is that we can count on Him. He is the full manifestation of all it is to be faithful. We put our trust in His character; He is not a man that He should lie. Your answer is on its way!
Quick Prayer. “Thank you for your faithfulness, and that you honour your word.” Amen
“The workers labored faithfully.” (2 Chr 34:12)
If someone were to take a poll on you and ask about your attributes would faithfulness make it to the top? I doubt it would even make my list, yet it is something we should value highly.
Faithfulness is best described as adhering firmly and devotedly to someone or something that elicits or demands one’s fidelity. The workers in this Scripture applied themselves to the task at hand with diligence and excellence.
We are called to a way that should compel us to integrity, devotion, excellence, and faithfulness. Fortunately, we serve one who is keen to see us produce such fruit and will ensure we do.
Quick Prayer: There is something wonderful in faithfulness—such an honorable trait. Keep me faithful, Lord. Amen.
“Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.” (Pro 10:4)
We are often quick to blame God for all our problems. Other people and circumstances are reasonable targets as well. It is always easier to look elsewhere when blame is to be apportioned.
This is not about a guilt trip, and I certainly wouldn’t want to place any condemnation on you, but when we do not apply ourselves to the tasks assigned to us, there are consequences that are real and physical, including missing a promotion or being disciplined at work.
The Bible says lazy hands lead to poverty, yet the hope is that He is always ready to help you with a turnaround. The outcome He wants is for you to be blessed, and diligent hands bring wealth.
Quick Prayer: I’m sorry for when I slack off. Help me to work well and wisely. Amen.
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed ” (2 Timothy 2:15.)
How is your skill level? Have you, like a lot of leaders, neglected your own development in order to serve your company? Diligence is not only applying yourself to your duties with vigor, it is also ensuring you are advancing and growing. If you look after yourself you will often have more to give others.
Do not neglect reading, learning, listening to wisdom, attending a seminar or meeting together with like minded business people. Be diligent in your own growth and development and all around you will benefit; and you can “present yourself to God, as a workman who does not need to be ashamed.
Quick Prayer. “Lord, help me to help myself and grow in wisdom and knowledge that I may serve you with diligence.” Amen
