Matthew 6:31-33King James Version (KJV)
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Many people often wonder the steps to success. We all try different things and way to get to the top. However, the main reason many of us never reach the top is because we miss one essential thing. Focus… We are so busy trying to do so much we never actually on what we want to be successful at. For example, I could ask, “What do you want to do with your life?” Your response may be, I want to be a doctor. or, I want to be a rapper”. After that, we start naming of sideline goals such as, I want to own a big house and have lots of children, drive a bmw and make millions”. That is where we go wrong because now our focus is off…
I speak from experience. I am a poet. I have been for 5 years now and I am just getting to be somewhat where I wish to be. I started out firing on all cylinders trying to record, get a website and get my name out there. Yet, I forgot my number one mission… writing poetry. When I started focusing on that and perfecting my craft, other opportunities came with time.
Here is the good news… IT’S THE SAME WITH GOD! If you focus on him and what he is having for you to do, I promise all things will be added that you need, just as the verses say to us. God’s word is his promise and he has never broken a promise.
I charge us… focus on your goal. Stay true to it. I promise the rest will come along with time. More importantly, focus on God. He promises to take care of you. Don’t sway. Don’t get sidetracked by the here and now and glamorous things. FOCUS! Be blessed.
