2Kings 6:4 “So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood.”

The sons of the prophet eventually crossed to the other side with Prophet Elisha and immediately, they began working. They didn’t wait or rest on their oars, they bent their backs and started cutting down the required wood for construction.

Beloved, one thing your dreams, visions and aspiration will require from you is work. No lazy man ever achieves anything significant. If you check through the Bible, everyone that achieved anything great was diligent with work.

The first thing we even noticed about God from the beginning was his work ethics. We were introduced in Genesis 1 to how He worked none stop for six days to put the heaven and the earth together. Infact he didn’t rest until the seventh day when he was done.

There are no shortcuts to achieving your dreams, you must work. Grace is not anti-work, hear what Jesus who is grace personified said:

John 5:17 “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work”

John 9:4 “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work”

In this kingdom, slothfulness is prohibited. Laziness is forbidden, if God works, you and I must. The sons of prophet didn’t get to the other side of Jordan and fold their hands, they took the axe and started cutting. You need work to harness and enjoy what grace has provided!

2Thessalonians 3:10 “Don’t you remember the rule we had when we lived with you? “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” (MSG)

2Thessalonians 3:10 “While we were with you, we used to tell you, “Whoever refuses to work is not allowed to eat.” (GNB)

Several people have very lovely dreams but they will never get down to work on them. What you don’t work will never work! Lack of good work ethics has made several dreams mere wishes.

Work is defined as any activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result. I know you have beautiful dreams so I employ you to roll up your sleeves and start cutting down wood!

Love you BiG
