Our Daily Manna October 7, 2017: ODM devotional – Concentrate On One Target At A Time

As 2017 ends, don’t allow the devil to distract you through problems! Keep seeing your goals!

Topic: Concentrate On One Target At A Time [Saturday, October 7, 2017]

(Philippians 3:13; John 21:7-17)

The ousted and exiled president of Gambia, Yahya Jammeh, started well when he just became president years ago! At that time, he threatened to implement measures in order to improve the agricultural output in his country. Guess what? He made a decree at that time: Play football during the rainy season and go to jail! He wanted football halted in rural areas during the rainy season when crops needed to be tended. Normally, years ago, it was during the wet months, June-October, that the traditional “NAWATHANE” football tournament gripped the entire country. That tournament was eventually “killed.”

This is the application of the power of concentration ( doing one thing at a time), in the case of The Gambia, to ensure the success of agriculture. You and your family must do the same to see greater results in your entire life and ministry. It is not possible to feed lambs and catch fish at the same time (John 21:15). It is not possible for the horse to wear two saddles. Andrew Carnegie said, “One great cause of failure in life generally, is lack of concentration.” Life is too short to be spent on everything and no human brain can “swallow” all the new inventions in life, science and ministry. The man / woman who desires to be ahead of others must single out his specialty!

Great men of history have been men of one idea! Strength is like gunpowder or bullet. To be effective, it needs concentration and aim. The army General who scatters his soldiers all over the country cannot escape defeat. Paul said, “This one thing I do.” Note the two words: ONE THING! No wonder Ralph Emerson said, “Concentration is the secret of strength in politics, in war, in trade, in short in all management of human affairs.”

Cicero said, “Careful attention to one thing often proves superior to genius.” As 2017 ends, don’t allow the devil to distract you through problems! Keep seeing your goals! Don’t start another business or ministry yet! Don’t move out of town yet! Face your present calling and apply ruthless concentration! Men will salute you!

If you need deliverance, see your pastor or be at the Manna Mountain this week Sunday 8am (OGUDU) or 10:30am (LEKKI). One-on-One at Lekki this week!

Prayer Points: Take any song in your native dialect.

1. As 2017 ends, I arrest the spirit of confusion and lack of a definite target in Jesus Christ name. Pray in Tongues!

2. You powers responsible for “scattered progress,” break loose from my life and ministry now in Jesus Christ name.

3. Pray for wisdom to face a definite goal at a time!

4. I resist every spirit of ‘unfinished projects’ in Jesus Christ name.
