SCRIPTURAL FOCUS: And Jesus said to him, No man having put his hands to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Luke 9:62 KJV
TODAY’S THOUGHT: “Fixing your eyes on it is what guarantees that your staff of authority enters your hand.”
Passion is the fuel for focus. What you are passionate about is what captures your focus. The passion that football fans have is what captures their focus to the game. That is why they can go on from watching, to reading, commenting and even spending their money and time, week in, week out. It must cost you something for it to mean something. Elisha was passionate for the double portion of what Elijah carried (the anointing.) The requirement for Elisha was for him to be focused on Elijah and ensure he had his eyes fixed on him when he will be taken up 2Kings 2:10. Distraction for one minute can cost him his prize. That is why you must be able to give full account of yourself, because when the wind of release will blow you might not know the specific time but you will know the period. Knowledge of the period is what makes you ready. When a pregnant woman is due to give birth, the doctors don’t tell her the time, they can only predict the period, so when she finds herself outside of the hospital during the period, she has herself to blame for whatever complication that will take place. Anything that is great today was because someone gave it his/her all with full focus to see its actualization. Focus is in levels, the higher the focus the greater the result.
Jesus again, emphasized on the importance of focus in today’s verse, He said that anyone who lets himself to be distracted from the work is not fit for the kingdom. The kingdom is the prize, and those who win the prize are focused people with a sense of mission and goal. Brethren, please don’t be focused without a purpose. Have something that is making you to do what you’re doing. Don’t do it because others are doing it. If you want to see the real results of focus do it with a defined purpose and mission.
To secure your place in life, you must ensure you’re focused on something with the aim of accomplishing the task excellently.
Don’t be a jack of all trades and master of none. Pick an area and specialize in it, gain mastery in it and surely it will service you, because what you service will in turn service your life.
Every wicked gang up of hell to keep you distracted from the purpose of your life is set on fire this moment and rendered useless in Jesus name. You must be useful to God, yourself and to your generation. God bless you.
