Seeds Of Destiny For Today 2024 MESSAGE:

Kenneth Copeland once told a story of a Christian who was an aircraft mechanic.

This man applied to work in an aircraft company, a very big aircraft company, but the owner of the company turned him down and said, “We don’t need your services.”

However, this man persisted in going to look for work in this company and they kept on turning him down. Then on a particular day, he told the owner of the company, “Please sir, I will work for you free of charge; do not pay me anything.”

The man looked at him and said, “Okay, I will engage you.”

By the time they engaged him, this voluntary staff was more dedicated, diligent, careful, and knowledgeable than most of the permanent members of staff. The owner of the company observed him for a while and began to give him responsibilities.

That was how this man’s story changed. The man, who was once an aircraft mechanic, is now the owner of an aircraft-manufacturing company. A man who was once an uneducated aircraft mechanic became the owner of an aircraft-manufacturing company by the power of persistence and diligence.

Doing things occasionally is not what brings results; doing things habitually and persistently is key to distinction.

Persistence is key to seeing results in life. Some people do things occasionally and wonder why they do not see results.

If the man in our story had given up when he was turned down at first, he would not have become the owner of an aircraft manufacturing company. No one goes to the top by praying, fasting, giving, working, or studying occasionally; it takes persistence to go up in life.

REMEMBER THIS: Doing things occasionally is not what brings results; doing things habitually and persistently is key to distinction.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. Refuse to do the right things occasionally.
  2. Embrace the discipline of persistence.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to embrace the discipline of persistence. I receive the grace to be persistent in good works, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
