1 Kings 1:12
Now therefore come, let me, I pray thee, give thee counsel, that thou mayest save thine own life, and the life of thy son Solomon.

Follow God’s counsel.

People say ‘be realistic’ but whatever is not in line with God’s word is not real.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

When you follow God’s word, even the oldest man can’t stand your wisdom.

Experience is not equal to wisdom
Age is not equal to wisdom
Logic is not equal to wisdom.

A diligent soul is attentive and persistent to get things done. Determination to accomplish tasks.

Location does not affect diligence, it’s a thing of the heart.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2
And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

To hear and follow God’s instruction requires diligence.

Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

…meditation gives birth to revelation, understanding, application, prosperity and good success.

No lazy man can follow God.

A lazy man will still cry the cry of a 25years young man at 50.

1Timothy 5:17″
Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

A lazy man will be later back and later off eventually, only the diligent get double honour.

Diligence takes you up…

Proverbs 22:29
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Hebrews 6:12
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

It takes diligence to imitate those who are doing well and have gone ahead.

No greatness without handwork.

We prophesy, you work, as you begin to work, the prophesy will begin to work.

If you are slothful, you will miss your slot in life.

Genesis 2:15
And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Proverbs 12:24
The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.

Recommendation comes after diligence have come to play.

Acts 10:38
Christ was anointed but He went about, doing…

Plan early in life, so that you will not suffer later in life.

John 9:4

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Diligence is compulsory for exploits in life.

Diligence is the gateway to enthronements in life.
