DAY 19 // Sent by Jesus to Diligent, Successful People
Jeremiah 29:11 “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Proverbs 12:24 “Diligent hands will rule.”
Ever hear of “common grace?” It’s the grace God gives to everyone, whether or not they have been born again. That’s why unbelievers usually recover from sickness, enjoy the fruit of faithful relationships, and prosper when they apply godly principles like diligence, vision, making a plan, and working it. God finds such joy in working with people willing to dream and work, that He gives them more dreams and rewards them when they create like He does. Most of the greatest masterpieces in art, music, architecture, and business came from Him inspiring and working with unbelievers. It’s one of the ways He loves best. So, be like your God. Keep your eye out for people around you who are willing to get back up after they fall down, apply themselves diligently to their assignments, seek success, or want to make a difference in society. Pray for their eyes to be opened. Long for them to connect with the God who has created them with a great plan for their future. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you words of wisdom and words of knowledge for them. Pray in the spirit for them by name and listen to the ideas He brings you. You know God’s plans on earth for them are better than the best ones they can come up with and includes their salvation. They need to know about His plans.
Invest 10-20 minutes asking an unbeliever about their hopes and dreams. Share how God wants them to succeed even more. Invite them to come to your church where people are inspired and equipped to fulfill their destiny in God.
