BEING DILIGENT WITH THE WORD OF GOD

Many times, a vision or dream is given or shared but for that vision or dream to become a reality there are steps that need to be taken for it to be actualised. It can be likened to when Joseph helped Pharaoh to interpret the dream he had about the lean cows swallowing the healthy ones and the miserable wheat heads overshadowing the healthy ones. Pharaoh didnt sit back and ask his audience to clap for Joseph. He swung into action and found someone to cause the dream to be turned positively into action.

Joseph didnt spare any time but folded his sleeves to get the job done. This is called diligence. Joseph was not going to be caught napping on the job. He ensured the surplus of the harvest from the years of plenty was collected and stored well till they could not measure it. Like it has been said it usually the extra that separates the ordinary from the extra ordinary. During this season of supernatural harvest, we need to go an extra mile, do the extra that needs to be done to bring us to the place where we have the harvest that is beyond the usual brought in and stored well.

SCRIPTURE READING:
Genesis 41: 33- 39 “Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do [this,] and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one-fifth [of the produce] of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years. And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. Then that food shall be as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt that the land may not perish during the famine.” So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find [such a one] as this, a man in whom [is] the Spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, [there is] no one as discerning and wise as you.

DEVOTION PRAYER:
Heavenly Father, thank you for this season of supernatural harvest. Help me to develop the diligence that will match this season to bring in the great harvest that you have in store during this season in Jesus Name, Amen.
