DRIBBLE THE DEFENDERS
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Wednesday, 16th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“Be strong and of a good courage…”
🔹 🔹 🔹
We have already established that in working towards your desired goal, focus cannot be compromised. Yet, each time a man sets out to put efforts into the achievement of his goals, there arises a number of distractions, occurrences that seek to alter his direction and cause him to abandon his quest. These are what I call the defenders.
Distractions are subtle; they make you feel that something else is more fun than the work you have to do to bring your dreams to pass. Yet, the easy way is the way of distraction. To dribble the defenders therefore, you must resolve not to abandon your projects half way through. Like Jesus said, the man who places his hands on the plough and looks back is disqualified already (Luk 9:62). Glory to God!
Part completion is not the same as full accomplishment; settle for nothing less. Whatever makes you settle for less has succeeded in distracting you. Even so, for your dream to come to fruition, you must consistently give it the attention and investment it requires over the necessary period of time. It is not too late to shove aside that distraction. You can still win; dribble that defender!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬…
Though Christianity is the largest religion, effective discipling is the most urgent and prevalent need in this nation. Nominalism, pollution of Christianity with spiritism and occult are sadly widespread.
🙏🏼We are praying that the Gospel of Christ will prevail in the nation.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, strengthen me to succeed in all I do today against all odds.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
