Reposted from @idahosalaurie Don’t seek elevation without being committed to excellence.
Read this scripture about Daniel and how he got to the head of his industry.
“Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other presidents and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him. And the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.” Daniel 6:3 (ESV)
When you have an excellent spirit, you can’t be ignored.
Your brilliance distinguishes you from the crowd and attracts opportunities and open doors.
When you are in a season of multiple open doors, stay tuned to your purpose in God. Avoid distractions and most especially push away every mentality of laxity and entitlement. You are reaping because you sowed. If you fail to continue to sow and remain humble in your elevation, your promotion will be short-lived.
Many people are thriving in environments where just a little effort gets remarkable results. Don’t get comfortable with putting in just a little.
Whatever you are given to do, do it as if you are doing it directly for the Lord and work with your whole being. (Col. 3:23)
Each assignment and opportunity is valuable. Don’t judge opportunities by human standards. Something that may look small to you could very well be the one thing that sets you apart from the crowd. You never know which assignment will be the one that prospers.
“Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.” Ecclesiastes 11:6 (NIV)
I pray that the beginning of your week is as remarkable as you are and that your work reflects your gifts, talents and abilities.
If you are feeling fatigued and find that you are starting to do things half way or begrudgingly, depending solely on Grace and not putting in the required effort, please take some time to refresh and refocus.
