“…that’s why I run straight for the finishing line; that is why I am like a boxer who does not waste his punches….”- 1 Corinthians 9:26 (GNB)

If you are going to become deliberate and purposeful in all that you do, you must make a conscious decision to be focused and purposeful. Why, you might ask? Well, it is simple! Focus will help you to stay on course in whatever assignment you have found yourself. No matter how difficult or tough your task or assignment may be, focus is the thing that will help you to remain in it and win in the assignment. Purpose is the goal itself, when there is purpose it becomes easy to have focus. Without these two things, you will only find yourself, putting in so much effort and achieving very little results. So what do you do as a child of God? You have got to ensure that you live your life with clarity of purpose and put your focus on the goal

Refuse to copy or compare yourself to others, don’t try to do things without having an aim. You should have an aim in mind at all times so that every move you make will lead you to the goal you are trying to achieve. When God was trying to solve the problem of sin that plagued the world for a very long time, He sent His son so that through Him, many other sons will come home. Today, He achieved His purpose; the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ was a calculated one that not only paralyzed sin, it also reconciled men back to God. So take cue from this and organize your life. God wants us to function like Him, His plans and purpose for the world was clear and He executed it successfully. Stop doing things without purpose, have an aim and focus on it. Allow God’s word to guide you, so that at the end of the day, you will speak like Paul who said, I have fought a good fight and I have kept the faith. Therefore, stop wasting your punches and run straight for the finish line. God bless you!


Stop doing things without purpose, have an aim and focus on it.


Father in the name of Jesus, I am grateful for the wisdom you have imparted into my spirit. I declare that I will run the race of life with clarity of purpose and win at all times. I exercise focus and refuse to be distracted in any way. Thank you Father!
