DAY 25 SUNDAY: OCTOBER 2020

FOCUS YOUR MIND ON GOD FOR SUCCESS!

Train me, God, to walk straight; then I will follow your true path. Put me together, one heart and mind; then, undivided, I will worship in joyful fear (Psalm 86:11 MSG).

Anyone who wants to succeed in life and make great impact must learn to use his mind in life. Your mind should be focused on God in order to attain success in life. One should learn to discipline his mind by focusing it on God always in life. By so doing, one will avoid distractions of any kind in life. The Bible tells us in Isaiah 26:3 thus, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to always focus his mind on Him for success in life. A life that is focused on God is indeed a life that is enveloped in divine success and breakthroughs forever.

As a Christian, never you focus your mind on the things of life that distract and fade away with time. Learn to focus your mind on God and eternal things of life. That is why you need to study the Word of God and live by faith in life. You should learn to move with those who will inspire you and not those who will deflate your faith in God. That is why God told Joshua to focus his mind on His Word daily through constant meditation in life (Joshua 1:8). Therefore whenever a Christian learns to meditate on God’s Word, directly or indirectly he is focusing his mind on God for success in life. Hence, success does not come by self-efforts but by the Spirit and grace from God in life forever (Zechariah 4:6).

You should learn to be prayerful always in order not to lose focus and be carried away by distractions and worldly things of life. When your mind is on God, you will be victorious no matter the battles of life. As a Christian, never you put your trust on man or the things of life but let your mind and affection be on God always in life. That is the reason why Apostle Paul said that the peace of God guards your hearts and minds through Christ in life (Philippians 4:7). In fact, whenever a Christian learns to focus his mind on God always, he therefore receives shalom which is the eternal peace of God into his life. Therefore, the mind that is of course focus on God is the mind that is actually blessed with divine success and breakthroughs in life forever.

Daily Tip: When you focus your mind on God, you definitely achieve great and unprecedented success in life forever. 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).
