All the people who have made impact on history varied in many things, but they all had one thing in common - they worked hard. It is only true that “The heights by which great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight but while their companions slept, they kept toiling upwards into the sky.”
The Lord has given us work to do. He desires it accomplished. If we are to accomplish that work, we must put all that we are and all that we have into it. As far as this book is concerned, we must work with all our might. Only then can we satisfy His heart.
This book is written on working hard. We acknowledge that there are other important things in the whole matter of satisfying the heart of God. In this book, we have tried to concentrate on working hard. The other aspects of satisfying God’s heart have been covered or will be covered in our other books.
You can work hard and satisfy the heart of God.
You can work hard and win an eternal reward.
You can work hard in preparation for a high rank in the Kingdom of God.
You can work hard and improve your position on earth spiritually.
You can work hard and improve your situation on earth in all ways.
What you can do, you should do.

The Lord God worked hard and works hard.
The Lord Jesus worked hard and works hard.
The Holy Spirit is working hard.
You go and do likewise.
We have written a companion volume to this book entitled, “Deliverance from the Sin of Laziness.” Those who are lazy should read that book first and be delivered from laziness, and then, as they become free, they should read this one and master the art of working hard.
We write the book, not from a position of people who have “arrived”, but as people who are at work, mastering and applying the principles that are written here.
If you have been blessed by this book and been enabled to make more progress in working hard, please let us know and may the Lord bless you abundantly.
