"The plans of the diligent lead to profit, as surely as haste leads to poverty."Proverbs 21:5
What does diligence mean to you? Do you consider yourself a "hard worker"? Today's verse speaks the truth of how diligence produces fruit but haste leads to poverty. In Church Planting Movements, we long to see believers multiplying other believers and churches that multiply other churches, but discipling people takes time and trust. Going slow to go deep allows new disciples’ roots to go deep in God. Today ask God to give you a deep peace about the work He has called you to. Ask Him to fill you with understanding of what it means to rest in Him and in His timing for all things. Pray that you would diligently pursue your calling at the speed of prayer, guided by the Holy Spirit.
Disciple's Prayer for Today:
"Father, open the eyes of my heart to understand time in regards to serving You in the ministry to which You’ve called me. Let me find joy and hope in the fact that You hold all things in Your hands including time. You know Your plans for me and I trust You and Your timing today. Help me work with diligence and urgency as You direct me. Cause the roots of every new believer to go deep in You so they can multiply effectively.”
Prayer for the Unreached of the Day:
"Father, the 331,000 Muslim Bozo peoples of Mali need to know You. I ask that You would shine Your Light in their hearts. Jesus You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Be the way for the Bozo peoples, be their only truth, and be their very life. Show them the way to the Father. Raise up prophets to walk among them and give them powerful, life-giving words of hope today. May each worker called to the Bozo people go slow, be diligent and experience fruitful, multiplying ministry which glorifies You in all ways."
