SCRIPTURE: But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 1 Corinthians 15:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Successful people are hard workers; they are not just lucky.
Diligence has been confirmed to be a key to life and destiny fulfilment. Diligence is both hard and smart work. Diligence is a highway to the top. On the other hand, indolence is the fast lane to obscurity in life. It can never be easy for the lazy.
Jacob was a brutal worker (Genesis 31:38-41). Hard work was the only way Jacob could survive and succeed in the hand of a wicked and crooked uncle and master called Laban. At a point, he had to physically paint wood to determine the colour the animals were to bring forth because that was the next condition for the reward of his service. He practically wearied out Laban by work.
Paul the Apostle was another example of a diligent worker. He was the late comer who became the front runner by work (1 Corinthians 15:10). So, it is not when you became a child of God that matters but the level of commitment you are ready to give. It is the level of spiritual energy deployment you are ready to release that determines how far you can go in life.
Do not ever say some people are lucky because of the breakthrough God has given them. Successful people are hard workers; they are not just lucky. For example, we thank God for the level He has brought us so far. But anybody who says that we are lucky because of what God has done through us so far should try the “luck” for two weeks. There are some days we would work throughout the night. That is how “lucky” we are.
Beloved, determine to embrace hard and diligent work to access your high places in life.
Remember this: Successful people are hard workers; they are not just lucky.
1. Refuse to be lazy, lethargic or indolent in life.
2. Make up your mind to engage your life with brutal work.

AMAZING FACT: In addition to smelling, trumpeting, drinking and grabbing things, Elephants can use their trunks to breathe (like a snorkel) in deep water. In this way, they can swim fairly long distances. God is wonderful!
