Joyce Meyer (August-01-2021) Daily Devotion: Be Diligent.
Proverbs 22:29 (AMPC) says, Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men. A diligent person lives by the principle of “just do it!” They’re the one who does it, does it, does it, and then does it some more, until whatever they’ve set out to do is finished, and done well.
Never give up on anything God has told you to believe for; don’t quit doing anything He’s clearly shown you to do. Your diligence will pay off with a blessing!
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. – Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
Prayer Starter: Father, help me today to stay diligent about doing what You’ve called me to do, and not to give up. Thank You for giving me the grace I need to keep going! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
