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

In many instances in the Bible, we observe that God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Therefore, our weaknesses and flaws cannot stop God from using us as a blessing, nor does He consider our educational background, pedigree or physical appearance. God uses men who would serve Him in perseverance and diligence.

From our anchor scripture, we understand that a man who is diligent is a man that stands out. Diligence is a character trait that every believer should imbibe and exhibit. Diligence in prayer and the study of God’s word is a vital attribute in the life of a believer.

As we pray this season, we should not lose our fervency in the place of prayer, but continuously build tenacity in the things of God. Our walk with God shouldn’t start and end after special seasons of prayer and fasting, but should stand vehemently strong, overcoming the test of time. We are to persevere and keep going in faith.

’’Not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord, rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.’’ Romans 12:11-12 NKJV

Joseph was a diligent man. He worked relentlessly and dependably as a slave in the house of Potiphar and even in prison. A life of diligence completely changed his circumstances for good (Genesis 39: 5-6, 23). For every hurdle Joseph faced, he persevered and kept going.

A man of diligence is a man who perseveres in tribulations and in triumphs. So, like Joseph, on rainy and sunny days, we seek God in faith, stay fervent in prayer and diligent in all God has committed to our hands. This is our reality! We press on regardless, to build a purposeful devotional culture.

Therefore, as believers, grow in diligence. In your prayer life, study of the word, giving, teaching and evangelising, and in your personal ministry, seek to put in your best and be excellent (1 Timothy 4:15). Let your dedication to Christ be your motivation as you grow in your faithfulness and commitment to God. Don’t stop! Keep going!
