We are now starting off our “Becoming a Better You” series. The foundation has been laid in the previous blog. Also, I have already done the first two steps on periscope and posted the replay on YouTube.
As we go along on this journey, sometimes we lose focus. We may get discouraged because of the trials. We tend to forget the reason for our faith and the basics of Christianity. I told God that I was going back to the basis; which was to spread name of Jesus Christ throughout the earth. We are called to do the work of an evangelist (2 Timothy 4:5). I made a vow to always place a sinner’s prayer in my magazine, “Rejoice Essential.” I can preach and prophesy all day but I want to lift up the name of Jesus more. However, we must keep on striving while keeping our eyes on the cross. This is what’s it all about.
When I did this teaching on periscope, souls got saved. The Glory of God manifested and people got healed. Many people came and testified about how they needed this teaching. I want to grow spiritually. Don’t you? I want the Lord to be pleased with my life. Do you? I don’t want to be distracted in this journey. The first step in becoming a better you, is to be kingdom focused. When you are kingdom focus, you don’t have time to be caught up in nonsense. You don’t have the time to worry about what God is doing in someone’s else ministry. There is no time for jealousy or strive. When you are kingdom focused, you are about God’s business.
What is kingdom focus? This is getting to know what the kingdom is. The kingdom is synonymous with the kingdom of heaven. This is knowing who God really is or coming into the knowledge of him. It’s a process that can occur over time as we spend time with the Lord. Are you willing to take this process? When we are kingdom focus, we allow God to rule over our hearts and lives because we are submitted to His authority. We are taking the time and sacrifice to yield to our sovereign God. Did you know that the kingdom of God is within you? Jesus reveal this when he answered the Pharisee’s question about the kingdom. Let’s take the steps to make sure that everywhere we go, God goes. I want to take God with me in the grocery store, restaurant, school, work, etc. I decided to take the necessary steps to strengthen the kingdom within me.
Did you know that the kingdom of God is strong? Not even the attacks of hell will be able to prevail against it! The prophet Daniel said in Daniel 2:44 that, “The God of heaven would set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed.” It’s time to check ourselves. It’s time to realize who we are in God. It’s time to get a revelation of the kingdom. God’s kingdom is established, and he rules over all (Psalm 103:19; 45:6; 145:11-13). Just as the disciples of Jesus preached kingdom, so should we. Not only should we preach it, we should be able to demonstrate it. When we take a close look at Matthew 10:7-8, we see some signs that the kingdom of God has come. When the kingdom comes, the sick will get healed, the lepers will get cleanse, the dead will get raised, and demons will get cast out. Now forget all the foolishness that may be going on around you. Let’s get kingdom focused and have a move of God! There are lives waiting on us to demonstrate the kingdom of God!
