WHAT TO DO TO GET THE BEST 

MEMORISE
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19

READ
Philippians 4:15-17

MESSAGE
One of the qualities which earned Elisha greatness is hard work. Even if God decides to bless you today, there is a level you may never get to if you are lazy. Those who want extraordinary blessings must be prepared to work extraordinarily hard. The Bible in Proverbs 22:29 says,

“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”

Elisha was busy working hard. He did not lie down lazily to command his father’s labourers to work their fingers to the bone for him. He was working alongside his father’s labourer (1 Kings 19:19). Anyone who desires divine breakthrough must be ready to put up with hard work. All the disciples of Jesus were hard working. He met each one of them on duty when He called them. Peter was a regular and skilful fisherman before the Lord called him. Matthew was at his work of tax collection when the Lord called him. Christianity does not excuse anyone from hard work. I had a good number of friends when I became a believer. Some of them were so lazy that they were all taught the principles of faith and positive confession, but I knew that achieving greatness in life goes beyond mere confessions. My friends cultivated the habit of saying: “I am the head and not the tail: I shall proper and lend to nations, I will never borrow” etc. They made such confessions like “I am a millionaire and I possess a good car by faith”. At the end of the day, they remained as poor as they were at the beginning of their confessions. If you refuse to work and you go about confessing that you have claimed that car of your dreams by faith, the only car you will end up with will be your two legs.

Another quality which earned Elisha greatness is generosity. Immediately.

God bless you goodmorning …
