Topic: Focus on Believing
John 3:12 “If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?”
Nothing ever happens without a belief. The simple things that work make the bigger things happen. Look at two things Christ referred to in this opening text, knowing that men are earthly, He explained things from a point they should understand, meaning to open their eyes to the heavenly matters.
If you can’t believe things will happen, don’t expect them to. Some things require more belief and less effort to be achieved. There is a point where your nature must conform to the life of God in you, this is why believing Him must first effect a transformation in you. Believe!
Talk to God: Heavenly Father, help me to understand your precepts and believe in you for everything in Jesus name, amen.
There are brands in the world today that has stood the test of time. And every day, they grow stronger. I have come to understand that what makes this brand stronger is not their container, it is the content; what they have to offer. No sane and intelligent person purchase an item based on the container look.
What makes Samson stronger is not the lock of his hairs but the anointing of God upon his destiny but when he strayed away from the safety of God’s guidance, he became an easy prey. I pray for you today, may the enemy never had the upper hand upon your destiny in Jesus name. But this prayer can only work for people who never engage in any act that offend God because that is the only way to guarantee our authority on the enemy!

Topic: Focus on Possibilities
Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
If we want to be like our father in heaven, we should prepare to think like Him and see the way He sees things. One attribute of God we should inherit is His ability to see possibilities. Read the account of creation in Genesis, you will discover that God didn’t have a doubt about anything He said, and so they were.
You need to come to the point where faith and work no longer fail at the thoughts of failure and impossibilities. Whose report would you rather believe, God’s or man’s?
Talk to God: Father, give me your eyes to see possibilities just like you in Jesus name, amen!

Topic: Focus on Preparing Early
Joshua 3:1 “And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.”
Praise the Lord! Did you know that even before the event in this opening text, Joshua had been assured of his victory over Jericho, yet he was still getting prepared. In fact, the preparation continued even for days after (from verse 2).
God will always do His part to make you succeed, He doesn’t want you to be lazy either. No assignment should be done without preparation even if it’s half done. Focus and prepare early.
Talk to God: Teach me how to prepare properly for every task, Holy Spirit.

Topic: Focus on Expanding Goals
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
God does not want us to be stagnant, His pleasure is for us to multiply, to subdue and replenish the earth, such great purpose that He gave us the ability to think. A wise use of it it to expand our world with this provision.
Have you set goals? Focus on expanding them. God daily loads us with benefits and He does not want us to be wasteful. He created you full of potentials, so we explore them and not return with any when we die. Focus!
Talk to God: Father, help me to dream and achieve bigger this year in Jesus name, amen!
