TOPIC: NO EASY WAY OUT
SCRIPTURE: PROVERBS 11:20-25
ODM ONLINE 20TH APRIL 2021 TODAY MESSAGE BY BISHOP CHRIS
One of the fastest ways to identify a lazy man or a man without a defined vision is that he is always looking for THE EASY WAY OUT – THE FASTEST ROUTE TO GREATNESS. Unfortunately, that road has not been built and was closed before man was created. Even Jesus had to pass through the CROSS to the CROWN and through HELL to His HALLELUYAH LAND! HE WAS NOT LOOKING FOR THE EASY WAY OUT! He was not looking for the fastest route to greatness!
The only thing He sought for was THE SUREST ROUTE TO GREATNESS – THE ROUTE CALLED DILIGENCE and PATIENCE.It has been said, “Rivers become crooked because they look for the path of least resistance,” and that is what happens to most men too. They look for paths of least resistance, and they end up becoming weak, useless and crooked. Identify such men and women and distance yourself from them this year.
If you want to fulfil your destiny, THERE IS NO EASY WAY OUT, BUT THERE IS A SURE WAY – THE WAY OF DUE DILIGENCE, WAITING ON THE LORD AND I call that way – “THE NARROW WAY.” Options are restricted and few! Do you see a man who is diligent in his business, he will stand before kings and not before mere men. It’s not about standing before the king once. No! Daniel stood before kings again and again. David stood before king Saul again and again!
Moses stood before Pharaoh again and again! These men of diligence and honour had the ear and respect of kings and their mighty men. Why? They did not look for the easy way to the top. They followed the surest way – diligence (prayers, fasting, extra hardwork in your career, financial obedience to God in offerings, seed sowing/tithe, kindness to the needy, holiness, daily time with God and His WORD no matter how busy you are, midnight prayers, less of TV, social media, finishing your Bible every year, etc).
Follow these secrets of diligence and nothing will stop you from getting to and staying at the top! Amen! Pray now!
1. Take Song 1: My faith looks up…
2. In your own words, pray over today’s word as led now.
3. I choose DILIGENCE! I bury laziness/procrastination.I CANNOT fail or end up in shame in Jesus name.
4. I reject the voice of “Easy way out”; I choose the voice of DILIGENCE in ALL things, physical or spiritual!
5. Laziness/Pleasure, you will not rob me of my destiny and glory, in Jesus name.
6. Pray seriously for yourself in tongues today. Pray about today as led now.
