Focus Focus Focus

1 Corinthians 9:25-27”Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.”

Friend, imagine allowing the mind to wander while you are trying to hit a nail into a piece of wood, without sharp focus on the head of the nail – without doubt the hammer would miss and smash either your finger or the wood. This message comes with a caveat to control your focus! Smite every distraction and keep your eyes on your Savior!  Christians do not have much success because they have not much focus! Sharp focus! We get this when we dwell deeply into His Word!

When your job is shaky – focus on the Word!
When your marriage is dipping downhill – focus on His Word!
When your finances are plummeting – focus on His Word and prayer!
When your eyes rove to the neighbor’s car/wife and greed creeps, get into your Bible and read the word where God says, ‘Don’t covet.’

Meditate, meditate, meditate until you get an answer for your situation! We cannot achieve much, if we allow our thoughts to wander around the problem, stretch yourself to look at His promises and stay focused there! Are you listening? The more you keep flipping the pages of the Bible, the more would you get to know His promises, your knowledge of Him increases and thereby you get a ‘grip’. Do you hear me?

You need to just aggressively think, meditate, dream, focus, plan, prepare, arrange, get ready for your dream project and Vision so that puny , silly voices of discouragement doesn't matter anymore!

People who get discouraged and give up half way through the battle cannot confront the severe pressure the enemy would bring on you! Stay focused! When the enemy tried to blitz our school project through discouraging words of the officials, when we were confronted with nothing but big barricades on every side, I did one thing – I picked up the Bible and started reading. I read His Words in the wee hours of the morning, afternoon and night. Phew! I can never explain the energy I received! I felt taller and stronger! Though the circumstances did not change – something inside me changed! I was exploding with faith! Click HERE to watch a 1 minute shorts of our Abide School activities, dont miss it. Look what the Lord is doing!

We don’t need guns to scare us: stress, discontentment, pressure, loneliness, disease, failure and rejection can sure knock you down. Fear not! Stay focused on His power!

Don’t miss even a single Sunday morning service? Be regular!
Don’t miss prayer even for a single day!
