LOSS OF FOCUS – A DISTRACTION OF DESTINY
By DIGC22 October 2020
Whenever you agree to strive with someone, your focus is taken off where you are going in life.
SCRIPTURE: And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah. Genesis 26:21
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Whenever you agree to strive with someone, your focus is taken off where you are going in life.
It has been established that focus is distracted where strife is established. Whenever you agree to strive with someone, your focus is taken away from where you are going in life.
You know, where there is no focus, disaster is inevitable. Can you imagine a driver driving on high speed looking at another driver who is also driving on high speed? An accident is inevitable!
I give you one illustration: In October 1988, while I was travelling to Benue state, Nigeria, with other passengers on board, we had a terrible accident. The driver of the vehicle I boarded overtook another driver who was also on top speed. Both drivers were overtaking each other until the two vehicles came to a bend and could not overtake each other again and an accident happened. That was a practical manifestation of “mumulity” (foolishness). When the overtaking became dangerous and the accident occurred, I felt my head touch the ground. Finally, I saw myself sitting on the ground and my bag was beside me. The way God delivered me from death in that accident was unbelievable. Many deaths occurred as a result of the accident. What a disaster!
This is what happens when people take their focus off where they are going in life. Disaster is inevitable when people lose their focus and engage in competition with others.
Today, I counsel you not to lose your focus. Face God and He will take you to your destiny.
Remember this: Whenever you agree to strive with someone, your focus is taken off where you are going in life.
- Refuse to fall into the temptation of competition, strife and rivalry.
- Do not let another person and his/her work be your focus for life.
- Look straight; be focused on God and His purpose for Your life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I refuse to make another person my focus in life. Help me never to look away from You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Giraffes are the tallest land animal in the world, reaching heights of 19ft (5.8m). The ostrich is the world’s tallest bird. It can grow up to 9 feet (2.7m) tall. Over 2 metres (7ft) of a giraffes total size is its famously long neck, which helps it reach leaves in tall trees.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to maintain focus be released upon you in Jesus’ Name.
