Staying Focused


In a world troublesome as ours and times as uncertain as these that we find ourselves in the bubble of different challenges and afflictions; it begs the question how do you stay focused? Regardless of your system of believe, how do you stay committed? What keeps you grounded? I know you probably never thought about it before now or maybe you have. 

But if you are like me, you probably will say I am taking things one day at a time trusting God to for a better tomorrow. That is great, but seriously what is your secret of staying focused? With these types of questions on our minds, I was excited when Pastor Ebere Daniel shared this message with me, I couldn't keep it to myself but share with you. Read and be blessed! 
Text: 2 Corinthians 4:1-10
MEMORY VERSE: Hebrews 12:2 "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God".
One of the major challenges of the end-time believers is lack of focus. Most of us are easily tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:14).
To be focused in life is simply to be very committed to all that is needed to fulfill your God-ordained visions. It is a personal responsibility to ensure that God's plans and purposes on earth are established through you. As it is written, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven" Matthew 6:10
It is the unquenchable hunger to stay in God's mandate all the days of your life.
Staying focused in life is a very expensive adventure but highly rewarding. It actually requires a high level of self disciplinary measures.
Some of the benefits of being focused in life are as follows:
1) It gives quality time to fellowship with God
2) It guarantees perfect direction in life
3) It gets rid of regrettable actions and existence
4) It delivers us from wrong relationship
5) It draws us closer and deeper to God
6) It transforms us into God's on the earth
7) It creates room for easy discovery and fulfillment of destiny
8) It brings us to men and women of great honour
9) It guarantees our victory over all the challenges of life
10) It fills us with unusual peace, joy and rest of mind.
Beloved, while we are still alive, let us not forget that the Lord has chosen us for a purpose, which requires high level of focus. Therefore, we must overcome distractions and constantly connect with God through His word to ensure we end well. God bless you all.
FOCUS: Hebrews 12
Finally, stay focused on things that are heavenly bound. Stay the course of your faith for in due season, you will be rewarded by the King of Kings. God bless you!
