REMAIN FOCUSED (1) – Apostle Joshua Talena

(Galatians 5:7) Ye did run well, who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?

Focus involves directing your energy and strength on what you ought to do. When God came to create, there was darkness, but He said, let there be light (Genesis 1:3). He ignored darkness and satan and He concentrated and focused on what He came to do. The mistake many believers make is to focus on what satan is doing rather than on the power of the Almighty God. Jesus focused on the work He was here on earth to do (read John 9:4). He did not allow distraction His way. Even when satan spoke through Peter to distract Him from His assignment, Jesus rebuked him (Read Matthew 16:23).

You have to sharpen your mind and pay attention to what matters. Your focus determines your reality. What you give attention to shape your world. It is what you are standing on that determines what you would see. As a believer, don’t claim to be who you are not and don’t go to where you ought not to. Samson ignored his person and personality and you can tell the story.

Child of God, whatever you do in life, make sure you have a clear goal, otherwise, you might be spending your time in an undirected and unfocused manner. Knowing precisely what you want to achieve will help you to maintain a higher level of focus and motivation. It will also encourage you to do whatever it takes until your goal is achieved. But if there is no dream or vision that fuels your actions, you are more likely to give up when the going gets tough. Do not allow irrelevant things steal away your time, neither allow human beings who are going nowhere to distract you. A man that has no focus or has lost focus will definitely get transport fare from satan to embark on a journey.

Beloved, it is only those who concentrate on one thing at a time that will advance in this world. A great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty nor foolishly dissipates his or her individuality. Do not allow anything distract you. Stay focused and concentrate. Be wise!

Meditation: A man that has no focus or has lost focus will definitely get transport fare from satan to embark on a journey.
