Topic: Dealing With The Lifestyle Of Laziness [Seeds of Destiny 22 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
Scripture: Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon? Isaiah 51:9
Thought For The Day: A lazy person has no deadline and when there is no deadline, there can be no headline.
Laziness is a destroyer of life and destiny. Lazy people are not active people. Lazy people are not smart people. Through laziness, time is wasted and destinies are ruined.
A lazy person has no deadline and when there is no deadline, there is no headline. Lazy people do not make headlines for positive and impactful news in life. That is why the lifestyle of idleness and laziness must be totally dealt with.
Now, how can a person deal with idleness and laziness?
i) Destroy idleness by all means
Refuse to sit down doing nothing; ensure that you are busy for God and with your life. Do not watch time move and nothing is happening; work for God; give out a tract; lead a soul to Christ; do something!
ii) Do what you find until you get what you want to do.
Do what is findable. Many people are too selective, that is why they have found nothing to do with their lives. Sometime ago, a young man went to an office where they were looking for dispatch riders to distribute letters. When he gave them his credentials and they discovered that he was a graduate, they told him that they were looking for a Senior School Certificate (SSCE) holder and that he was over qualified for their employment. He told them that he was available to do the work. When they saw his willingness to work, they employed him and made him a supervisor and still went ahead to look for another person to do the dispatch rider job. They saw in him unusual sense of responsibility and they could not let him go; they needed someone like him in their workforce.
Beloved, my counsel is, do what you find until you find what you want.
Remember this: A lazy person has no deadline and when there is no deadline, there is no headline.
1. Avoid idleness by all means.
2. Do what you find until you find what you want.
3. Be busy for God; evangelize and share tracts.
Prayer: O Lord, I make demands on Your Power to destroy idleness from my life. I receive the grace to be busy for You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
