The man began to prosper, and continue prospering until he became very prosperous (Genesis 26:13).
As a Christian, be focused and let your attention be on God and His Word. You should never give room for distractions. A life that is full of distractions can never be blessed and prosperous. This is one of the problems of so many Christians today. They are not focused but give room for distractions and as a result lose their blessings. From the opening text, we see the life of Isaac in the land of the Philistines during the famine period. But because he was focused, God decided to bless him even in a strange land. God can never bless a life that is not focused.
In fact, a Christian should endeavor to know what God has called him to do and be focused in it. He should be able to know the gift that God has given to him; use it to the blessing of humanity and to the glory of God. In Deuteronomy 28:12 the Bible says, “The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.” God is ever ready to bless you but He will never bless you when you give room for distractions except you are focused.
The Bible tells us in 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” A Christian should learn to be focused and trust God for success and prosperity. Great men in the Bible that were very successful and prosper greatly like Joseph, Daniel, Nehemiah, Apostle Paul, etc., they were men that remained focus and never gave room for distractions.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should be focused in his ministry, business and profession. He should never give room for distractions. Shalom!
Golden Text: 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2).
