The scripture says in Luke 9:62. “…No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Jesus was actually talking about distractions that take away our attention from Him. In other words, if you begin the work of the kingdom don’t let anything take your attention, not even words that you hear, neither challenges of life. Maintain your focus.

The reason why God told the children of Israel that, am taking you to a land flowing with milk and honey and didn’t tell them about the route, the Red Sea, etc. in Exodus 3:7-8, He wanted them to focus. And that means He had already handled every other thing that pertains to their journey. The issues that may distract you are already catered for by the Lord. Refuse to be distracted, but keep your focus.

Sometimes you listen to the word and you are fired up and focused, but when you reach home you get distracted by what is around you. Refuse to set your eyes on that and focus on the Lord and what He has said concerning you. Some people want to have children, jobs etc. And they focus only on that every moment of their lives and when they are praying, they are saying; God give me a child, job, a house etc. only.

The Psalmist said in Psalms 37:4. “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Delight in the Lord and all will come beloved. That is why Mathew 6:33. Says “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Don’t let anything take your focus away from God, no matter how much you desire it. And don’t allow the negative words that people speak against Pastors and church also take your focus away. Remain focused and finish what God has given you and you will never lack what you need along the way, He will supply all that you need according to His riches in glory.

May the Lord Bless you as you keep your focus on Him.
