Proverbs – Cultivating Diligence
By Pastor Jesse – Junita’s mom



The meaning of the word seek is to search until you find.
Diligently means to work hard, to strive.
Hebrews 11:6 “….anyone who comes to Him must believe that he exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him”.

Why do we Christians walk half dead?
It’s because we give up.

You are responsible for the nation beside you. God did not create you for a selfish purpose. Seeking God is not only about going to church. Strive to know Him, to have His mind.

Three steps for seeking Him
1) Get as close as you can to God where you can ‘download’ something from Him
2) Press the right buttons
3) Wait for God to make His move – patience

If you have not the mind of Christ to do what He wants you to do, you’ll be afraid of the things of the world. Societies’ thoughts will influence you. Don’t depend on it. Depend on God. His thoughts and standards doesn’t change. The truth doesn’t change. Ever since you accepted Christ, you should be transforming level by level.

Proverbs 11:10 “Through blessing of the upright a city is exalted….” When you influence, the city is exalted. The favor of God is upon you.
