CONCENTRATE ON ONE TARGET AT A TIME

BASIC SCRIPTURES: PHILIPPIANS 3: 13; JOHN 21: 7-17

The ousted and exiled president of Gambia, Yahya Jamme, started well when he just became president years ago! At that time he threatened to implement draconian measures in order to improve the agricultural output in his country. Guess what? He made a decree at that time: Play football during the raining season and go to jail!

Our Daily Manna Devotional October 7, 2017


He wanted football halted in rural areas during the raining season when crops needed to be tended. Normally, years ago, it was during the wet months, June-October, that the traditional, "NAWATHANE" football tournament griped the entire country. That tournament, was eventually "killed." This is the application of the power of concentration (doing one thing at a time), in case of the Gambia, to ensure the success of agriculture. You and your family must do the same to see greater results in your entire life and ministry.
It is not possible to feed lambs and catch fish at the same time (John 21: 15). It is not possible for the horse to wear two saddles. Andrew Carnegie said, "One great cause of failure in life generally, is lack of concentration." Life is too short to be spent on everything and no human brain can "swallow" all the new inventions in life, ministry and science.

The man/woman who desires to be ahead of others must single out his specialty! Great men of history have men of one idea! Strength is like gunpowder or bullet. To be effective, it needs concentration and aim. The army general who scatters his soldiers all over the county cannot escape defeat. Paul said, "This one thing i do ." Notes the words ONE THING No wonder Ralph Emerson said, "Concentrate on the secret of strength in politics, in war, in trade, in short in all management of  human affairs." Cicero said, "Careful attention to something often proved superior to genius."

As 2017 ends, don't allow the devil to distract you through problems! Keep seeing your goals! don't start other businesses or other ministry yet|! Don't move out of town yet! Face your present calling and apply ruthless concentration! Men will salute you!

PRAYER POINTS: Take any song in your native dialect.
1. As 2017 ends, i arrest the spirit of confusion and lack of definite target in Jesus name. Pray in tongues!
2. You powers responsible for "scattered progress," break loose from my life  and ministry now in Jesus name.
3. Pray for wisdom to face a definite goal at a time!
4. I resist every spirit of 'unfinished projects' in Jesus name. AMEN!
