It’s impossible to have two destinations. It’s impossible to drive to two different places at the same time. You either pay attention to one or get distracted by the other. Attention and Distraction are rivals. Today’s world is attention grabbing. Distraction is one of devil’s major tools. If the devil can get you distracted, he can take your uniqueness from you. If the devil can get you distracted, he can take ministry from you.
When we seek to grow, mature and follow Jesus daily, laying aside weights and all entanglements; spending time to reflect and meditate on God’s Word, and fellow-shipping with other believers, then we can better focus on Christ and a life committed to Him.
Distraction is inevitable, but conviction and consistency is the escape route.
Consistency is king! Consistency is basic for ministry. Consistency is basic for spiritual growth. Consistency is basic for following God’s plan and purpose for your life. You’ll never veer off the road when Jesus is your focus. You’ll never get out of tune when Jesus is your music.
James 1: 21 [KJV] – Lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness and receive with meekness the engrafted word which is able to save your souls.
Hebrews 12: 2 [KJV] – Looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down on the right hand of the throne of God.
CONFESSION – I trust in the Lord with all my heart and I lean not unto my discretion. I am fully convinced and focused on the prize. I am guided by the Word of God. My eyes are fixed on Jesus and my heart is set on his word and the joy before me. Glory to God!
