Purpose MUST be the FOCAL POINT.
A person would embark on a Spiritual Awakening journey primarily because of dissatisfaction in one’s soul and spirit.
It is the Spirit realm giving us a nudge to come to a higher level of consciousness because :
- The time to begin the setting in motion of our purpose.
- It is impossible to achieve one’s purpose at the spiritual level one is now.
All one’s life has been in preparation for one’s purpose (the good, the bad, and the ugly, if you don’t believe me ask Clint Eastwood), in as much as we were not aware. From the schools, colleges one attended or did not attend, the places we lived, all the enemies that have spiritually attacked and keep attacking are designed to make us who we are today.
However, there comes a time when we know for sure who we are spiritually and the spiritual gifts we possess. Then the obvious question would be what is or are the gift(s) for, and the answer to the question is CALLED PURPOSE.
In the second book of Chronicles, Chapter 36, verse 22 it reads: Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia—to fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah—the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he sent a proclamation throughout his kingdom, and also put it in writing…
There are two points I want to address in the above verse.
The First point is the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus, the king of Persia; God also stirs up our hearts when he wants to get us in line for our purpose.
The second point is he also put the proclamation in writing; this relates to what I mentioned previously about ONLY SPEAK THE WORD.
A Proclamation is like Decree; a decree is an official order that has the force of law.
The Bible says in the book of Job 22:28 You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you, And the light [of God’s favor] will shine upon your ways.
According to Ephesians 3.20, POWER / ENERGY is working in us. This POWER/ ENERGY is released SPEAKING and or WRITING, as we can see King Cyrus made a proclamation and put it in writing.
As earlier established, the natural is parallel to the supernatural. Hence what the king did was a SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLE. Also, in the book of Habakkuk, it says WRITE THE VISION DOWN….
I am trying to say that we release this CREATIVE POWER/ ENERGY by SPEAKING & WRITING.
Another important point the LORD laid on my heart was Prophet Daniel prayer style. If we have noticed, the personal life of a Prophet is rarely mentioned in the Bible. Another rare thing is the prayer style of a Prophet.
So why did the Bible tell how Prophet Daniel often prayed. Again, I have two points on why the Bible mentioned that Prophet Daniel prayed three times a day.
- I believe Prophet Daniel’s style of prayer is necessary for certain people depending on their CALLING.
- The Prophet was in a foreign land, surrounded by enemies (360-degree enemies). I believe Christians are in a foreign land surrounded by enemies, and they are plotting on God’s people 24/7. This world is NOT our HOME. We are the NEW JERUSALEM.
Hence Prophet Daniel had to pray three times a day to cling to God; I can undoubtedly relate to been surrounded by enemies; anywhere one goes, they are there.
The MAIN part of this section is Our PURPOSE MUST BE OUR FOCAL POINT.
The Focal point is defined by Collins’s dictionary as follows: The focal point of something is the thing that people concentrate on or pay most attention to.
In other words, one MUST have a laser-like focus in the Connector to have faith in God and what HE has called us to do.
I have heard the phrase God kind of faith – the problem with that is God has no flesh, and our container is our NUMBER one hindrance. Hence Faith in God is more appropriate.
Laser-like focus in the Connector is aligning our thought patterns with God’s principles and the Kingdom of God’s mode of operation after all the Bible calls us ambassadors for Christ.
People participating in the current Tokyo Olympics MUST have the Laser-like FOCUS if they want to WIN GOLD; how much more servants of the Most High God.
Our belief system MUST be based on the Connector – the Bible.
In the world BUT not of the world, we must have a laser-like FOCUS on Kingdom principles, and that we are SUPERNATURAL.
We must flow and have a Deep concentration on who the BIBLE says we are.
Until Next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
