DISCIPLINE: A KEY TO EMINENCE
By DIGC31 January 2021
Beloved, discipline brings diligence and diligence fuels eminence. You cannot be disciplined and not be diligent; and you cannot be diligent and not be eminent in life.
SCRIPTURE: Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He will stand before kings. Proverbs 22:29.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot be disciplined and not be diligent; and you cannot be diligent and not be eminent in life.
Many years ago, in the nation of Israel, I preached a message to a congregation that comprised of a sitting president of Nigeria, governors of states, ministers, ambassadors and several other high profile people. I got some positive feedbacks and reactions from the message. Someone sent a text to tell me that the message was a product of diligence.
Now, in that meeting, I recited the story of Israel until the Israelis who were present there confirmed that what I said was correct. They were shocked about the details of the nation of Israel that I showed them – the land mass of Israel, what percentage is desert, what percentage is vegetation, the notable achievements of Israel, etc. all in one message.
While on flight to Israel for that meeting, I spent about four hours ransacking books and making research in the aircraft until the man sitting beside me, a professor in one of the universities in Nigeria asked me if I was preparing a thesis. I sat with him for hours without blinking my eyes, and I just left an all-night vigil to board that flight.
Beloved, discipline brings diligence and diligence fuels eminence. You cannot be disciplined and not be diligent; and you cannot be diligent and not be eminent in life. No devil can stop a diligent man from becoming eminent in life. This is because principles are stronger than principalities.
Beloved, if there is any devil after your life, challenge that devil today as you receive the grace for discipline and diligence, and you shall stand before kings.
Remember this: You cannot be disciplined and not be diligent; and you cannot be diligent and not be eminent in life.
- Make up your mind to live a life of discipline.
- Determine to be diligent in everything you do.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace for discipline and diligence, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: As a Christian, your firm focus on God is a rebuke on the unbeliever’s scattered focus. Your discipline rebukes their compromise, so they cannot withstand you. They cannot stay near you. And if they cannot stay near you, their evil cannot touch you. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Numbers 30-34.
AMAZING FACT: A tiger’s roar can be heard for roughly 2 miles (3 km). Of the big cats, only the tiger, lion, leopard, and jaguar can roar.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Fresh grace for fresh discipline is released on you in this season in Jesus’ Name.
