BE FOCUSED (I)

I welcome you to this wonderful time in the presence of the Almighty God. By the special grace of God, we will be examining the topic tagged, Be Focused.

This is an all-important subject, because our lives are a reflection of our focus. There is so much power that emits from staying focused, that causes you to take on the exact image of whatever your focal point is. 1 Corinthians 3: 18, says: But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord

One great man of God once said, “You become like unto what you adore (focus on).” Remember that focus is giving your undivided attention to something. The devil tries to break our focus by bringing all kinds of obstacles to distract our view. Why? it is Because he knows that so much power can be wielded through focus.

We therefore, need to be able to recognize these obstacles. The irony about these obstacles is that you overcome them, by making God your foremost focus in life. Focus determines both your impact and your future; it is that serious!

If Satan can succeed in breaking your focus, then he can break your life. The truth is, what you focus on is what consumes your time, energy, resources and attention.

What is Focus?

Focus means to concentrate, look ahead, and keep your attention on something. Taking about focus, it is believed that you have a dream, a goal or something of interest ahead of you that you need to concentrate on.

One great man of God once said, “You become like unto what you adore (focus on).” Remee distinguished in life, make a mark and count, you must know what to focus on. Some of these include the following:

Focus On God: The first and foremost focus in your life must be on God, for your life to count. God is your Helper, without whom you can do nothing. He is your Source, without Him your purpose can never be fulfilled. Therefore, your goal in life should be to focus on God.

Until you begin with God, things are bound not to go well with you. Develop a relationship with Him through prayer and the study of His Word. The truth is, if you focus on God, He will focus on you. Ruth 1:16 says: And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

Focus on your Goal: The dictionary defines goal as “something that you hope to achieve in the future, aim” A goal gives you something to look forward to; it gives you a definite expectation for the future.

Someone has said, “Goal setters are go- getter,” and I believe it is very true. Everyone who is going somewhere in life, must set goal. For instance, any footballer who desires to become the footballer of the year, must first set himself to score goals for his local team. Then, with continuous exercise, his dream of being the best footballer begins to find fulfilment. Do you want to be the best in your field? Then, set goals that will help your accomplishment.

However, to be able to be focus on God and your goals, you need God in your life. With God, all these things that you desire are possible, only if you are ready to surrender your life to Jesus Christ. You do this by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. If you are ready for this new birth experience, please say this prayer of faith with me:

Dear Lord, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins.  Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour.  Now I know I am born again!

Congratulations!

You are now born again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through
