Is your focus on the things of God or the things of this world. Most often than not, we place our focus on the things of this world and forget God who has the power to give wealth. The bible says that God is the one who has the power to give wealth. So stop putting your focus on the things of this world, but rather let your focus be on God.
Before now, I use to always focus on the things of this world, How to get married, travel abroad whenever I want to, live in a big house in a choice estate, drive big cars and so on. But then I realised that I couldn’t achieve all this things without God.
The bible says, seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness,and every other thing shall be added unto you. Every time I read this scripture, I never use to understand it, until I started putting it into practice. And it really works, God’s word does is not a lie. What he says he ll do, he ll do.
One thing I have discovered about God is that, if you always focus on him, he ll always grant you the desires of your heart. So even before you ask he has done it for you.
In 2016, I travelled to Enugu to visit a friend, I met one of her cousins who was a blogger, am one person who is interested in many things, and I ask questions a lot on the things am interested in.
So I asked her a few questions about blogging, which she was kind enough to answer. But then, I wanted to know more, so at the end of my visit, I collected her phone number so we could continue the conversation.
Something in me told me that she won’t be willing to give deep secrets about it, so I forgot about it. In 2018, I met someone who offered to train me on Web design for free, so he gave me some materials on Html, then I started planning to do a course on App building at the end of my web design training.
So I wrote down the things I wanted to achieve at the end of my training. One of my plans was to build a community App, this was to bring people from different parts of the world to come together to achieve a common goal.
One day, I was discussing with a friend about blogging, he said he was once a blogger, but that it didn’t favor him, so he had to quit. So I asked him to give me a clue on how to start in case I wanted to, so with the little clue he gave me, I started doing research.
During the course of my training, my instructor introduced me to someone who was into blogging, I told him that I had interest in blogging, and so he was willing to assist me. He assisted me all the way, from buying of domain to getting Google adsense approval. So in less than six months, I got Google adsense approval, which use to take some bloggers years to get.
Now I achieved all of this because I put my focus on the things of God.
Before now, I would never have been able to achieve all these things, but the moment I started seeking to do the things of God like going to hospitals to visit and pray for sick people, praying for people other than myself and family members, trying within my power to study and obey God’s word, things started changing for good. I started getting favors which I never used to get. I saw God’s hand in everything I did.
So finally, focus on God, and he will bless you.
