Apostle Grace Lubega
Proverbs 22:29(KJV); Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
Diligence is a law of attraction.
In our theme scripture, God reveals one of the many things it attracts–wealth.
The reason why some people are close companions with the beggarly and miserly is because they are not diligent. They wonder why they are surrounded by people who can never extend them a helping hand despite their desperate status.
How do you expect to attract wealth when the sun rises to find you still tucked away in bed, dreaming of better days and hoping that your life will change?
How do you think you can attract wealth when the greater part of your days are spent in front of a television screen, languishing in a sofa you didn’t pay for and in a house to which you make no rental contribution while praying that God will bless the work of your hands?
Wealth and success yield to diligence.
You must do something with your life other than passively sitting back waiting for the heavens to open and shock you with a miracle.
Do not excuse laziness by claiming there are no jobs. God did not promise to bless your white-collar job when it comes. He promised to bless the work of your hands.
Be deliberate about your future by choosing diligence as a life path because He that labours mightily lives in you.
