There is no substitute for hard work in life. He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough; Proverbs 28:19.
Hard work doesn’t kill; it is wrong work that kills. It is what we do that God will bless. If we do nothing, there is nothing for God to bless, leading to a frustrated life and living at the mercy of others.
So many of us especially we youth rely on our fellow human for help. We even go all the way to blame our fellow human for not helping us. Don’t get me wrong, it is true that human is one of the instrument of help that God can use to bless us but until we look onto God as our source, then our desired helper can never be sent to us.
Never try to bend the Scripture to sooth your convenience, God is not a man and He is not a respecter of person. “It is Hard work plus Grace that is Equal to Success in Life”.
Until you obey the Word, there will never be any productivity in the area of your heart desire. We are always living a dependent life on our family, friends and neighbors. Remember, those we are depending on also needs help. And the way of human is never stable, so putting your trust in human is the beginning of a life of unending frustration.
I will like us to have a dependent mentality from now onward. “Until you take Responsibility as an individual, you will continue to remain a Responsibility”. It is what you do that God will bless and not what you wish to do. God will never put you in a position that you are not prepared for.
Conclusion: No matter how anointed you are, you can never pass an examination you know nothing about or that you are not prepared for. “Hard work is the Core Foundation to the building blocks of progress in life”. Therefore, never put your trust in any man but in the work of your hand and God as your source of progress. Cast your hope on God and God only.
