Diligence:

"Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." 2 Peter 3:14

Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed. --Robert Cavett

Any battle for victory, power, and deliverance - from ourselves and from sin - which is not based constantly upon the gazing and the beholding of the Lord Jesus, with the heart and life lifted up to Him, is doomed to failure. --Alan Redpath

Here is the great secret of success. Work with all your might; but trust not in the least in your work. Pray with all your might for the blessing of God; but work, at the same time, with all diligence, with all patience, with all perseverance. Pray then, and work. Work and pray. And still again pray, and then work. And so on all the days of your life. The result will surely be, abundant blessing. Whether you see much fruit or little fruit, such kind of service will be blessed... -- George Muller

He who waits to do a great deal of good at once will never do anything. --Samuel Johnson

Some say if only my fears and doubts will leave then I will get to work. But instead you should get to work and then your fears and doubts will leave --Dwight L. Moody

Worship is giving God the best that He has given you. Be careful what you do with the best you have. Whenever you get a blessing from God, give it back to Him as a love gift. Take time to meditat e before God and offer the blessing back to Him in a deliberate act of worship. If you hoard a thing for yourself, it will turn into spiritual dry rot, as the manna did when it was hoarded. God will never let you hold a spiritual thing for yourself; it has to be given back to Him that He may make it a blessing to others. -- Oswald Chambers

If Christ does not reign over the mundane events in our lives, He does not reign at all. -- Paul Tripp

Enjoy!
