There are many books written on the subject of Jesus Christ, but none have touch on the subject of his way of meditating and how he was able to create success despite the social challenges and controversy around that time period. Christ would spent many hours in meditation and prayer. Usually not acting, starting or finishing his day until he visited the Father. He taught meditation to his disciples. Remember Peter, and the sheet let down by four corners. Peter meditated, Paul meditated, John in the book of Revelations. In the book of Acts when Stephen was stoned. Jesus when beatened and crucified.
The purpose of this book is to distill and breakdown the books of Psalm 1 to bring clarity to the scriptures, to show the intent of God and the vision of God for everyone called by him.
Specifically we are going to look at focus.
Lets start off by defining the word focus from a Pastor King and the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Focus is the ability to quiet ones thinking for just enough time to think a single thought, carry out that thought and produce the exact outcome you imaged. Here is an example. Peter and the other disciples are career fisherman. They know the waters, weather conditions that could potentially cause problems and etc., but out of obedience from Jesus Christ, they cast their boats and nets to fish. Meanwhile Jesus is on the other side praying and meditating away from crowds. When Christ decides to meet them as he promised. He walked on the water to get to them. The waves had already demonstrated themselves as a potential danger to the disciples, but out of obedience they hung on. In the distance, they could see a figure on the water walking towards them. Unaware of any person who could do that, they imaged it to be death. Peter insisted that it was Jesus and called out to him. “Jesus if that is you, bid me to come out into the water and walk to you.” Jesus told him to come He did, for awhile.
Meditation is challenging because there are many distracting and pressing thoughts that push themselves to the front of your consciousness.
Here is the main scripture we will place our focus on and break the scriptures into pieces, rightly dividing the word and making it plain to you.
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
