“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” (Ecclesiastes 9:10 KJV)
It is easy to find many that are slothful, not keen to work with their hands and behaving as if they have all the time in the world. The unfortunate thing with slothfulness is that the day you wake up, you no longer have the strength of your youth and you can’t recover all the lost time.
Solomon in his great wisdom advises that whatsoever you find for your hands to do, do it with all your strength, focus and apply excellence to it. Apply all the principles of wisdom and knowledge you have. Seek advise from those who know and have excelled in the same work. That way you will find success. Don’t look down upon the tasks that come to your hands. Work at it, you will be noticed soon and that will bring you promotion!
The slothful waits for a mega deal to work on, he is ignorant of the fact that a seed of a tree comes small and not as a big tree. Plant a seed today and in twenty years it will be a tree that gives you fruit. Avoid ‘get rich quick schemes’ as they only take you down and waste your seed and progress!
Solomon says, “whatsoever.” One might say but I am only a maid or a cleaner! Refuse to despise yourself, bring yourself in the limelight through diligence in that work. That way you will spend better days. All work of hands has the potential of bringing you to a place of wealth. It is not God’s desire for you to die a poor man! Do you have hands? He spoke and said, ” He has blessed the works of your hands.” Idle hands hold an idle blessing and working hands find fruitfulness.
As you pray today, look at you hands and speak these words to them, “From now on you will not be idle. God has blessed your works and I am ready to apply all wisdom and knowledge towards whatsoever I find to do.” Don’t let the economy determine your life. The blessing you carry is above national economies and currencies.
Today I choose to be diligent in the work of my hands. I apply wisdom and seek knowledge concerning my skill and occupation. Through this, my life is coming into the limelight and I am getting noticed by those who matter.
