2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
The walk of faith is hallmarked by consistency. It means being willing to yield to your assignment and stay with it.
Are you in this for the long haul? If Jesus tarries, will we still see you in church when you are 60?
The worst habit you can have is to quit easily at the first sign that things aren’t working without trying to exhaust all the options.
If you can look back over your life and there is a trail of unfinished business, we can tell that you are not yet ready to commit and to see things through. It is you that is the problem.
If you quit on your assignment from God, you force Him to take the grace from your life and put it on someone else, while your memory is erased from the story. You will see someone else rising up to do what you were called to do, because you aborted the process.
How many times you fail is not as important as the number of times you get up. If you have had a set back, stand up and pick yourself up. Your future is not in what didn’t work, but in your decision to start doing things to the best of your ability from now on.
Here are some things that will help you to stay on course:
- Get your mindset right. Make a decision. There are some things that are more important than other things even though everything is interconnected. You have to prioritize rightly.
- Ask God to show you what is important for you and to help you not to be distracted. Open the eyes of your understanding to know what is important.
- Ask God to help you cut off from people who are time wasters so that you can come into your intended purpose.
- Expect God to open your eyes to the real opportunities that you have been walking past because you have been preoccupied with the wrong people and things. The spirit of God will cause you to discern your moment of visitation and your window of opportunity. God will visit you.
- Keep your focus on the knowledge that, because you will not quit, God will honor you, and you will rise like an eagle to the highest possible place.
