Hebrews 6:12 (KJV) That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Patience became very diligent and disciplined because of the people she was following. They were those who through faith and patience had inherited certain manifestations of God’s promises. She observed that they all had one thing in common, they were all very diligent people.

It is not possible to be a person of faith to the point of inheriting the promises of God in your life without being a person of great diligence. Scripture reveals that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him(Hebrews 11:6). If diligence is not added to your pursuit of God, it might not be fruitful.

The easiest way to learn and become diligent is by following a diligent person. Diligence is a virtue that can be learned through followership. One of the surest places you’ll find diligence is in the life of a person of faith. A man of faith is a faithful man, and a faithful man will be diligent and consistent.

The thing about diligence is that one continues to do certain things even when there’s no instant gratification. He understands that if he continues in those things, there would be a reward at the end. That’s how faith is too. A man of faith understands that his life of faith is not for nothing. He has a hope that propels his actions of faith. Faith is indeed the substance of things hoped for, and faith without action is dead (James 2:26).

Go into today remembering that one sign of true and living faith is diligence. “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” Proverbs 22:29,

Prayer: Father, I ask for and receive grace for greater diligence, in Jesus’ name. Amen. Proverbs 22:29, Hebrews 11:6.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
