DILIGENCE💪🏾

Paul said in Hebrews 11:6, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who diligently seek him.” According to the Oxford Universal Dictionary, diligence is “careful attention, industry, assiduity; unremitting application, persistent endeavour.” A diligent person is described as “assiduous, industrious, conscientious, thorough; not idle, not negligent, not lazy.” Jesus tells us, “Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing”—and not caught in idleness (Matthew 24:46). Yes, Jesus expects responsibility and conscientiousness from us. John Wooden said, “A champion athlete must work with controlled frenzy.” And the heart of a true champion knows this spiritual power is the divine energy God expresses in and through us and this divine energy is often required to carry out the work God has called us to do. One thing is certain, God will not place us into a position or ask us to accomplish a task for which He will not fully equip and enable us to do.
