God can do a lot but not through just anybody; He needs men that are hard working. You can only qualify yourself for God’s choice through diligence at the Word of God and the details of your assignment (diligently doing it by commitment, discipline, and daily, not occasionally). God supplies a calling and an election but you supply diligence to make your calling and election sure. Many people don’t even know they are called because they have not added diligence. Several people just do things when they feel good.
If you must fulfil your destiny on this planet, there are four enemies in your life that you must conquer daily:
1. You must conquer laziness. Laziness is relaxation when a man is supposed to be engaging in a useful purpose.
2. You must conquer procrastination and not put off things that should be done now till later. Procrastination is a tendency and it can become a habit. A habit is stronger than information. If you hear something new today but your habit is different from what you hear, you will still carry out your habit. Until you hammer the new information into a habit by discipline, the old habit will still rule.
There are many people today that go to fantastic churches, hear fantastic messages but still behave the same old way because their behaviour is the product of their habit. You must know that your habit is the product of discipline that came from exposure to information. If you are going to change your habit, you have to get new information and discipline yourself to practice that information until that information becomes your new habit and then replaces the wrong habit.
PRAYER: Lord, grant me grace and strength to conquer every form of laziness and procrastination in my life daily in Jesus’ name. Amen!
