Success is your birthright, true; but no lazy man has a future in the kingdom. Living without working is like dying without knowing.
Read Ecclesiastes 10:18 from your Bible
You will never find a successful man who is not a successful hard worker. If you go through the story of successful men in the world and even through Scriptures, you will find out that no man ever rose to the top who was not a proven hard worker. Every man of height and dignity in the world today and in Scriptures is a notable hard worker.
The blessings of God flow through the works of your hands (Ps. 1:3). His promises are coupled with human responsibilities. He said to Abraham, “I will make you great and your name very great.” The Bible says, “So Abraham departed.” He didn’t depart only to continue sleeping and waking up. No. He departed and started rearing cattle., Not long after, Genesis 13:2 records that:
“…Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.”
It is impossible to see success without diligence. A wise man once said, “Trying to be successful without pouring yourself into your job is like trying to pluck a star out of the sky.”
Read Proverbs 22:29 from the Bible
If a man has no business, he can’t stand anywhere higher than where he is right now. You need to be diligent in your business, not running about like the devil; that’s only when you can stand before kings.
One of the great fathers of America, Benjamin Franklyn, once said, “laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.”
Read Proverbs 24:33-34 from your Bible
Jesus, the Saviour of the whole earth, said, “I must work.” In another place, He said, “The Father worketh hitherto, and I work”(Jn. 9:4; 5:17). If God the Father is working, and Jesus too, who are you going to resemble by being idle?
Work authenticate faith! (James 2:18.) What is faith? It is taking God’s Word and acting upon it. Let there be no more vacuum in your life. Let there be no time when you sit down idle. Go out and pour your life into something. Only working hands are blessed hands. Rise up and react against failure! Fulfill your covenant obligation for success and see God back you up!
Hear what the wise have said: “Does thou love life? Then do not squander time; for that is the stuff life is made of.” Another wise man said, “Life is a coin. You can spend it anyway you wish; but you can only spend it once.”
With these three covenant keys : wisdom, discipline, and diligence, in place in your life, there is no stopping your resounding success on the earth!
