“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.”
God gives His children big dreams to pursue in life. In order for those dreams to be fulfilled, we must spend time in training, cooperating with God in a process of personal development. This process includes time, determination and hard work.
These days, we’re so used to convenience. We want to have a hot meal… Just microwave it! We use automatic dishwashers to clean our dishes and laundry machines to dry and press our clothes. We just press a button and a machine goes to work. But nothing is automatic in God’s kingdom. You can’t fulfill His plans and purposes without developing the necessary skills. except you want to get burn… take it from someone who know. I have tried to achieve my dream by myself because I felt God’s method was too slow. Each time, I just kept hitting the rock bottom and going back to square one.
In Proverbs, we read about the ant. Ants more than make up for their small size with simple determination, and we can learn a giant-size lesson from them. We must be just as self-motivated and self-disciplined.
As you develop that kind of self-motivation and discipline to live for Christ, you will become all God created you to be and also lead others to Him in the process. So keep pressing on, growing in determination, and watch your dreams come true!Adapted from my daily Devotion: Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life
