MEMORISE: Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. Proverbs 20:13

Proverbs 20:4:

Proverbs 20:13:
13 Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 82-85, Romans 8:19-39


One day a woman came to me asking for financial help. I gave her some money. The following day someone informed me about a job vacancy and I immediately sent for her saying God had answered her prayer by providing her with a job. To my surprise she refused and said she couldn’t do that type of rigorous job.

Laziness is like a leech; once it gets attached to its host, it feeds on the person and robs him or her of some nutrients. If you allow laziness into your life, it will rob you of success, progress, wealth and many opportunities. Poverty, lack, failure and stagnancy will become the friend of anyone who is lazy. That is not Gods plan for any of His children, however, He does not support laziness. In Genesis 1:1-31, we see God at work; He worked for six days before resting on the seventh. If you want to be like your Heavenly Father, you must work. You must be diligent and hardworking because those are the solutions to laziness. My child, no amount of prayer or deliverance can save a lazy person. In other words, prayer is not the solution to laziness, it is hard work and diligence.


Prayer will not do for you what hard work can.

HYMN: All Things Bright And Beautiful

  1. All things bright and beautiful,
    All creatures great and small,
    All things wise and wonderful,
    The Lord God made them all.
  2. Each little flower that opens,
    Each little bird that sings,
    He made their glowing colours,
    He made their tiny wings.
  3. The purple-headed mountain,
    The river running by,
    The sunset, and the morning
    That brightens up the sky.
  4. The cold wind in the winter,
    The pleasant summer sun,
    The ripe fruits in the garden,
    He made them every one.
  5. He gave us eyes to see them,
    And lips that we might tell
    How great is God Almighty,
    Who has made all things well.
