The Reward of Diligence - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 24 August Thursday
"…the appetite of the diligent is abundantly supplied." (Proverbs 13:4, AMPC)
The Reward of Diligence
longs to pour out His favor and blessing on you. He longs to show you
His goodness and provision. He promises to do His part, but you have to
do your part, too. You have to be diligent. First of all, be diligent in
seeking His ways and following His commands. Then, be diligent with
what you have in your hand, with your time and resources.
Matthew, Jesus tells a parable about three men whose employer entrusted
them with some money called talents. Two of the men were diligent and
invested the talents and received a great return. The third man was
afraid and buried what he was given. The first two men were rewarded and
praised for their diligence while the third man was rebuked.
the example of the first two men and look for ways to be diligent with
what you have in your hand. Whatever you do, do it with excellence. Be
the best you can be and go the extra mile even when you think it goes
unnoticed. Understand that when people don’t notice, God notices and
promises to reward the appetite of the diligent.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your favor and blessing on my life. Today I
choose to be diligent. I choose to live in excellence and do everything
to the best of my ability. I give You all the glory in Jesus' name.
