Proverbs 13v4 The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.
It is God’s desire for us to succeed and prosper, the bible says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3rd John 1v2. Therefore, it is a normal thing to desire to live a great life, have a good family, pursue a great career or even run a successful business. However, it is not enough to simply desire all these good things that God also wants us to have, but we are also supposed to employ God’s wisdom and build our lives, families, careers or businesses, by His grace. To build means create or develop something over a period of time.
It was Robert Collier who said, “Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print and begin to build”. If we are not willing to arise and build what we are visualizing about our lives, families, careers or businesses, we will be like a lazy man who desires and ends up with nothing. It is only when we arise and become diligent in our lives that we can see all our desires fulfilled. The bible again says about the desires of a lazy man, “The desire of the lazy man kills him, For his hands refuse to labor.” Proverbs 21v25.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION: May the Lord grant you the grace and anointing to be diligent so that your heart’s desires may be fulfilled, in Jesus’ name!
“Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the courage to arise and the grace build my life, family, career or business, today I choose to be diligent so that my desire for greatness may be fulfilled…”
