The Steady Mind

And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.(Luke 9vs51:53).In the above scripture, we see Jesus setting His face to go to Jerusalem because the time had come for Him to do so. He sent messengers ahead of Him, who went to Samaritan instead of Jerusalem. These messengers expected that everywhere they entered into even if Jesus did not send them there will be results. This is because they felt since they had come in the name of Jesus – even if they disobeyed the very authority in which they came – they still believed they will get results which they did not get eventually. In the same way, if you run a business you need to understand that as the owner of the business your face must be set in a particular direction in other to have growth. Certainly, you will have people working for you and who will either believe in your or vision or not but at the end of the day the success of the business depends solely on how far you can see the business grow. As Christians we are under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and you must understand that if you want to get results through Jesus you must know where the face of Jesus is pointing in your life. This is because the time has now come for every issues in your life to be settled. God is ready to bring to fulfilment all your heart desires because that is where His face is focused. This means every areas of your life that you are experiencing challenges is where God is facing right now and wants to make the necessary changes in other for you to move to the next level. As a child of God if you operate on the earth outside where His face is actually not pointed towards then you may not get results has described in His word. Once you do not get results what happens next is that you will start getting frustrated about everything that is happening around you. That is when you start to encounter misunderstanding with people and all the fight in the natural start breaking out because you have missed the direction of the face God in your life. But as Christians God has given us the grace to know His mind at every point in time when we seek His face genuinely. That is why the scripture says, “for God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”(2Corinth 4:6) . This means that you know what God wants to do in that situation through the light of His knowledge and it is simply to glorify Himself in your life. As His child God wants to demonstrate certain things in this season of your life, that will make everyone say that of a truth, there is a God that reigns in the affairs of men and He is alive and well. People will look at your life and give praise unto God for the marvellous things they can see. In 2Corinthians 3vs1:2, Paul said, “do we begin to commend ourselves? Or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? ye are epistles written in our hearts, known and read of all men. This means we are not looking for any commendation from men or letter of recommendation but our letter is that we are epistles of Christ because we are focused on God. Thus, you do not need to be in the face of anybody to receive anything rather what you need is to make sure that the letter that God wants the world to understand about you is engraved inside your own heart. If you write it in your heart and you make it plain, your vision will speak by itself without you saying anything about it. The experience that will manifest is now written on your heart and it is through constant confession of the word of God on your lips . That is why the bible says, “my heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Psalms 45vs1). This means it is with your tongue that you will write it within your being what is going to come out physically. Therefore, what we behold in the lives of other people are the laws written in their hearts. For this reason, you do not need recommendation from anybody because if the law is inside you it will show. But if you do not have the laws written within you and somebody tries to elevate you, gaps and faults are inevitable because the responsibility will only show how unprepared you are to manage that level of promotion. Therefore, do the right work by focusing on the major things so that when the opportunity finally comes up you will not be found wanting or lacking in any way.
