Focus Forward – High Impact Living with Pastor Rick McDaniel – August 5, 2020

FOCUS FORWARD

Luke 9:62 tells us, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” You need to have a laser-like focus in your life and it must be in a forward direction. If you focus on your setbacks, you have more setbacks. This is not what God wants for you. It is not God’s plan for your life.

You can get past the health challenge, you will get past this crushing loss, you will move past the relationship that broke apart. And you will do so by proceeding with new goals, new vision, for a new future. Your forward focus will not allow you to stay in the setback position any longer. God creates marvelous comebacks. He does them all the time.

Here is a unique comeback story. There was a young couple that wanted to be missionaries to Africa, a very noble desire. As they went through the qualifying process, the wife discovered that she had some medical issues that disqualified her from living in that kind of climate.

The couple was devastated. Their dream had died. They longed to serve and help people, but now because of a health issue, they were stopped in their tracks and didn’t know what to do.

The young man took over his father’s side business in which he made grape juice for communion in church services. He built the business into the huge company that makes Welch’s Grape Juice, Welch’s Grape Jelly, and many other products, making a lot of money through which he financially supported African missions.

This couple never was able to go to Africa, but what a difference they made through their giving. God turned their physical setback into a financial comeback.

The kingdom of God is about focusing on the motion that takes you forward. Try balancing a bike just by sitting on it; you can’t do it. But if you start moving, you can balance it perfectly.

There is no life in the past. Looking back changes nothing and only leaves us with sadness and regret. The past cannot be changed but the future certainly can. Focus on your future and leave the past behind.

Forward movement—that is the kind of focus that leads to comebacks. You have a choice, move forward in the direction of your comeback.
