Today Reminder - 24 February 2012 (Losing focus)


My prayer for you for today is that you will not quit nor give up, but instead you will be refreshed with a wave of power from God, in Jesus Name.

Galatians 6:7-9
Don't be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.

Losing focus. Have you ever being side-tracked while busy with something and when you finally get back to it, your whole thought process is disrupted. It happens to me from time to time when I am busy with a piece of work and suddenly I have to help with something else, then I will have to sit down a rethink my process so that I can return to where I was. Sometimes we lose that process and we have to start over and in most cases we end up following a completely different way. It can be quite annoying at times. 

One of the most cleverly devised methods of the enemy is to get us side-tracked during the day. We start our days well focussed on the Lord and trying our best to stay in that mind set, but then the enemy will find a way to side-track you with other issues and eventually you have lost focus. The negative side to this is that the more times you have to start over with something the less you are inclined see it through. 

You see we do our best to try and do good, but we fail allot and this failure will be used by the enemy to constantly throw this question at you: “Why? Why am I still even trying?”

Don’t be misled, don’t give up and don’t mock the justice of God. Be a farmer, don’t be foolish to think your harvest will be poor. The rain will come and the seed will grow and the harvest will be amazing. What seems impossible to us is possible for God, He has no boundaries and no limitations and He will not let your good seed go to waste, because each one we win is a triumph for God.

My dear friend, don’t quit and don’t give up. Don’t lose heart but stay the course. This ride is about to get allot bumpier, because God is not a mediocre God and He does not do “boring”. He likes to leave us in stunned silence and amazement so that we can know He is God as we are blown away by the power of His work. So DON’T GIVE UP, you are making Him proud.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers
