With a fresh focus

“And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them.” (Judges 8: 4)

Gideon’s mission was to overthrow the Midianites and put an end to their seven-year oppression. He had few but God-appointed soldiers with him to achieve the goal. There can be no glorious battle as fighting with the army of the Lord. Gideon defeated the Midianites. The men of Israel pursued their enemies to Jordan, fainting and yet pursuing. Passion for total victory must have made them to continue to pursue the enemies despite their fainting condition. What a great lesson for every person who is battling for excellence.

Men and Women with passion and purpose in life must continue to pursue their success goals regardless of seemingly inconvenient conditions. You must be committed to your goal achievement come rain, come sunshine; and when you are full or hungry. If Gideon’s army could disregard their uncomfortable feelings to realize their goals of success, you can also despise every discomfort to make progress on your success journey. No man has ever woken up to realize his dreams without facing some obstacles in history. The strategy is always to persist in pursuing your goals, even when you are fainting.

Challenge: People with purpose are never distracted from their goal pursuit.
Prayer: Help me dear Lord, to be focused in my life pursuit.
