Consistently Focused

Two men are trying to cut down a tree for themselves respectively. The first man applies the axe to his tree a thousand times and yet, the tree remained standing. The second man, only swings one hundred times and yet his tree, a tad bit wider than the first, fell to the ground. The difference between the two men was that the first one swung randomly hitting any and everywhere that he could, whilst the second one made every to apply each consecutive swing to the same spot.

Such is the power of focus and consistency. Even the biggest giants will fall when you are properly focused and consistent in prayer, obedience, praise etc. The reason why so many Christians are ineffective comes down to those two points; lack of focus and consistency. One may have focus but without consistency, focus is futile. Whilst consistency without focus is self-defeating.

My encouragement to us today is to gain insight and grace from the Holy Spirit in battling the core issues within our lives that have been eroding our success and purpose. Let us find the areas where we are weakest and apply consistent focus and see the power of God manifested in magnificent ways.
