THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
SET YOUR FACE, RUN YOUR OWN RACE AND STAY FOCUSED
In Jesus’ life, when the time came for Him to be crucified, He SET His face to go to Jerusalem. There was no more PREACHING to the multitudes and FEEDING five thousand, no more WAITING at the well for the Samaritan woman, no more STOPPING by Zacchaeus’ house for dinner. Those things had been for a SEASON, but now the hour had come to fulfill His PURPOSE. He would not ALLOW for any distractions.
If you’re going to reach your highest POTENTIAL, you have to do as JESUS did and SET your face. “Your HOUR has come.” You can’t get distracted by things that are keeping you from your PURPOSE. The enemy would LOVE for you to waste your TIME and ENERGY trying to win over EVERY critic and to convince someone to understand why you don’t do things or say things that THEY want to see or hear. Your time is TOO valuable. That’s a DISTRACTION. SET your face, run your OWN race, and stay FOCUSED on your GOALS.
