MY DAILY COVENANT WITH GOD DEVOTIONAL
Devotion for Monday May 4, 2020
Topic: Be Consistent
Text: 2 Timothy 4:1 – 8
Consistency is one of the bedrocks for excellence. Before you can make your mark that will bring you to the podium for recognition, you would have shown a great deal of consistency in your career.
Today, ‘My Daily Covenant with God’ is gaining popularity because I refused to be discouraged by what people say or do. I have weathered the storm in the past years and refused to give up. These are some of the lessons I learnt from our mentor, Robin Sharma in his book, ‘A Leader who had no title.’ How determined are you to make it to the podium in your career? It demands consistency. Are you already washing your net? Don’t give up. A little more effort will make all the difference in your career in Jesus name.
In our text, Paul was telling Timothy that his call demands consistency in preaching and teaching of the word of God; being ready in season and out of season to preach, teach, discipline, etc., (2 Timothy 4:2). This is the only way he can make his mark as a pastor.
This call to be consistent is not only in the Christian ministerial work. Such consistency is needed in all the careers of life. Before you be known in your career, you would have shown more commitment, zeal, dedication, passion, enthusiasm, etc., more than others you work with.
How passionate, committed and enthusiastic are you in your work as a minister of the gospel; as a Christian, as a teacher, trader, artisan, civil/public servant, etc.? Be consistent because that will bring you to the peak of your career in Jesus name.
Food for Thought: How consistent are you in your Christianity and career?
Memory verse: 2 Timothy 4:2
Prayer: Help me O Lord, to be consistent in my Christian race and career so I will make it to the podium at last in Jesus name.
