God exalts the diligent. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Proverbs 22:29 “Do you see a man who excels in his work. He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.”
From the above context we observe how a diligent man excels in his life. Some of you who are reading this message are struggling in life. You may not have a proper job. Therefore you are not able to settle in life. Just as God blessed Joseph with a small job and he began his life with a small beginning, God is going to provide you with a good job. It may be a small beginning but don’t despise the small beginnings in life and God will lift you up to a higher level.
Many of you who are reading this message have been waiting too long a time for a good promotion. God who gave promotion to Joseph in Potiphar’s house will also grant you promotion. Some of you are crying saying you are unable to receive a good name from your authorities, even though you have worked hard under them for many years. You are saying that you are doing all the hard work but someone else is enjoying the benefit of your hard labour. You are wondering if a change will take place in your life. Some say that your boss has not recognized your hard efforts for the company. Your master has failed to observe your hard work until this day therefore you have not obtained any promotion. Well God says, just as Potiphar observed the good work of Joseph, soon your authorities too will begin to observe your hard work. God will help him to see that it was by his hard work that his company or business was successful.
God is breaking all the barriers that stand in the way of securing a good job. Through you, God will bless your master and grant you fame and praise among all the peoples of the city, town or country. Therefore commit your ways unto the Lord trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord bless our work as You blessed the labour of Joseph. May our mater observe and appreciate our hard effort that we take. Grant us promotion and help us to stand before noblemen and Princes. Teach us never to despise our small beginnings but strive hard and be successful in our life. In Jesus name we pray.
