You Are Gifted For Greatness
Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.
– Proverbs 12:24 (NIV)
Joseph and Daniel were both ordinary people that lived extraordinarily. They both found themselves in hostile climes and foreign lands due to no fault of theirs. These lands with their laws were oppressive to people of their “kind”, yet through their diligence in faith and action, they became rulers.
Somehow their passion to do and be what others could not be triggered a series of events that culminated in the amendment of the governing laws of those lands. These allowed them (slaves and foreigners) to be elevated to positions of great and governmental influence.
Beloved, you too have what it takes. You may feel ordinary but the anointing to be extraordinary is in and on you.
Diligence, hard-work, the continuous practice of your skill and gift in service to God and humanity will impact and bring salvation to a dying world.
Don’t stop being faithful to God. Apply yourself to your work, job or whatever your hands find doing, your excellence and diligence will get you before great men!
You will not be lost in the crowd. Only be resolute to do what you do in a way and manner that no one else can and see where the Lord will take you to!
In the name of Jesus I declare, I am distinguished by the workings of my talent, skill, and labor. I come out of the closet of laziness and sloth to embrace a faith full of works. I will serve my gift to the world with diligence and in excellence. The Lord will promote me to great heights of honor. Amen.
