Topic: What Is Your Focus?
Daily Personal Confession
The LORD has settled all that concerns me and my household. He has won the battle for us. Every spiritual blessings upon my life and household is multiplied by the great I Am. I am not afraid because Jesus is alive inside of me, His promises for me are greater than any plans against me. The mighty hand of God has pulled me out of miry clay and my feet is set on solid rock of Jehovah. I am forever filled with gratitude because I am a child of the King of Kings. Hallelujah!
Memorize: Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. – Colossians 3:2
Bible Reading: Colossians 3:1-4 (KJV)
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
I was a Mathematics lecturer before I went into fulltime ministry and I know that in every class I taught, while there may have been many students there, not everyone’s focus was on understanding what was being taught.
Some students were focused on the lecturer’s clothes, some on how he spoke, some on impressing the other students and so on.
The same applies in the Kingdom of God. Many people call themselves Christians, but only a few have the right focus. All some people want from God is a new car, a new house, promotion and so on. I pity such people because they will get what they are focused on and lose out on the more important things. Jesus Christ, in Matthew 6:33 says:
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
I am a living testimony of the efficacy of this scripture. I set my focus on the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and now I can’t count how many of these other things I have. The good part is that I am also on my way to Heaven.
Focus on pleasing God; stop chasing shadows and pursue the substance. If you get the substance, you will automatically get the shadow too. Many people never reach the heights that God has ordained for them because somewhere along the line, they take their focus away from heaven and start pursuing material things.
Ask anyone who has had a near death experience: they will tell you that material things, flashy as they may seem are not worth all the attention given to them. From now, make Paul’s admonition in 2 Corinthians 4:18 your lifestyle:
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Search your heart: What is really your focus as a Christian?
FATHER thank You for the detailed blessings released upon me regardless of the threat of failure and penury from adversaries
FATHER, please help me to be focus on the most relevant things of life, in Jesus’ name
FATHER, help me to set my focus on the kingdom of God and His righteousness, in the mighty name of Jesus
FATHER, please, let Your spirit help my infirmities to pray, with groanings that cannot be uttered, as I confess, that I do not know how to pray, as I ought to, in Jesus’ name.
I decree, every endeavour or attempt I and every member of my household will make this Saturday shall be favourable for us in the mighty name of Jesus
I decree, all our earnest activity and effort shall end with good news in the mighty name of Jesus
I decree, every stumbling block to my joy and peace be removed, depression and anxiety be cleared off, in the mighty name of Jesus

I decree every power toiling with my faith is exposed and negated, in Jesus name
